It's been one of the most intriguing political mysteries of recent weeks - what did a Ukip councillor say that was a so out of order that she was fired by her party.
It transpires Rozanne Duncan, 68, has a problem with "negroes" because there's "something about their faces", reports The Times.
The Thanet councillor was sacked last month for the "jaw-dropping" comments made in a recorded TV interview but Ukip failed to disclose their true nature at the time.
Duncan digs herself further into bigoted terra-firma by arguing she is "not racist" because she has "many Asian shopkeeper and local business friends".
At the time of her sacking a party spokesman said: "Ukip is expelling Cllr Rozanne Duncan under rule 15 of its constitution for bringing the party into disrepute. She has 28 days to appeal."
Speaking on LBC radio in December, Farage said Smith was "not suitable" to be an MP, but accused his critics of being snobbish.
“I'm a bit sad, because Kerry Smith is a rough diamond. He's a council house boy from the East End of London, left school early and talks and speaks in a way that a lot of people from that background do.
"I feel a bit sorry for Kerry Smith, because I think he's a genuine fellow."
Farage said "a lot of people" would use the word "chinky" to describe a Chinese meal. "If you and your mates are going out for a Chinese, what do you say you’re going for?" he asked the presenter.
And asked if he would himself say he was "going for a Chinky", Mr Farage replied: "No, but a lot of people would. I don't think I've ever used that word."
He insisted that only a "small proportion" of Ukip candidates had caused the party problems through their comments, but added: "Of course we have people who do things and say things that are wrong.
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.
Seemingly stuck in 1945 when his behaviour would be considered a bloody good romp, Jeremy Clarkson was at the centre of two race rows this year after using the term "Slope" in an episode of Top Gear and singing a not-so-politically-correct version of eeny-meeny during filming.
Former Cardiff City manager Malky Mackay was at the centre of a fairly big storm as his private texts were revealed, in which he managed to offend pretty much everyone.Malky's defence for his casual racism? "It's all just banter, really."
Wigan boss Dave Whelan came under fire for hiring Malky Mackay as the team's manager due to Mackay's history of casual racism. But it turns out, Whelan was just as bad. While defending his appointment of Malky, Whelan managed to offend Chinese and Jewish people, while also making it clear that he didn't really understand why anyone was pissed off.He even used the phrase "some of my best friends are Jewish and Chinese" during a shoddy attempt at apologising.
Media mogul Murdoch, who owns 20th Century Fox, stuck his foot in it while defending Ridley Scott's decision to make a film about Egypt using an entirely white cast. When accused of white-washing history, he tried to justify it by saying "all the Egyptians I know are white". Infallible logic there, Rupe.
Trouble-magnet Mario was charged by the FA after posting an incredibly offensive joke on Instagram.Balo thought it would be OK because he's black and his mum is jewish, but it turns out it wasn't OK. Because people still found it offensive. Funny, that.
Somehow this England Women's international footballer never got the memo about blacking up being totally not OK.
Someone at LSE accidentally sent out a test email to thousands of students - 30% of whom are Asian - addressing them as Kung Fu Panda.
