Nigel Farage: 'We, as a party, are colour-blind'
UKIP would scrap much of the legislation designed to prevent racial discrimination in work, party leader Nigel Farage has said in a Channel 4 documentary.
Mr Farage's comments were made during an interview with the former head of the Equalities and Human Rights Commission, Trevor Phillips.
Downing Street said his comments were "deeply concerning", while Labour branded them "shocking".
Mr Farage said his party was "colour-blind", and any comments about having laws to ensure competency or fairness in employment "may have been valid 40 years ago, but not today".
