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.
