The political party Nigel Farage thinks is 'openly racist' (clue: it's not Ukip)

Nigel Farage has explained that there is one "openly racist" political party in Britain, and it's not Ukip.

While claiming that his own party is "all-embracing", the Ukip leader said media attention should instead be focused on the "anti-English" SNP.

Speaking at a campaign event in Hartlepool on Tuesday, Mr Farage claimed: "The SNP are openly racist. The anti-English hostility and the kind of language that is used about and towards English people is totally extraordinary."
