UKIP leader Nigel Farage caused controversy this morning after using the term "coloured people" during a radio interview.
Mr Farage told BBC's Radio 4 Today programme: "The Tory party sacked somebody last week, who was a serving councillor, for talking about coloured people coming into Sussex."
The UKIP leader was referring to comments from John Cherry who resigned as a Conservative councillor after he claimed that Pakistani children would fail to "rise to the top" and that some nationalities failed to understand hard work.
Mr Cherry added that children from a "coloured area" would not be welcomed at a proposed new boarding school in West Sussex.
Twitter users condemned Mr Farage's language with one saying "what a stupid thing to say" and another writing that the UKIP leader was "perfect, for 1980."
