Nigel Farage, leader of Britain's United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP) enjoys a pint of beer at a pub in South Benfleet, England, Friday, May 23, 2014. UKIP, Britain's anti-European party has made big gains in local elections, taking votes from both the governing Conservatives and main opposition Labour Party. It's a strong performance for the U.K. Independence Party, which advocates pulling Britain out of the EU and stopping the unfettered right to entry of European citizens. With about a third of results declared Friday from voting for 161 local authorities, UKIP had almost 100 seats, well over its predicted total of 80. Britons also voted Thursday in European Parliament elections. Those results will be announced Sunday along with tallies from 27 other EU countries. (AP Photo/Lefteris Pitarakis)

Warning: this article contains graphic racial slurs, because otherwise it would just be full of stars.

When one of Ukip's candidates had to stand down after using the word "chinky", they blamed it on the side effects of his medication. The media made fun of it and moved on, as usual.

But that didn't stop perennial self-parody Nigel Farage from bringing it up again on LBC, defending the casual racism.

The Ukip leader claimed that such terms were acceptable if you grew up on a council estate. Right.

Here's eight more people who don't really get this whole 21st century thing.
