Off-message Conservative, Labour, Lib Dem and Green councillors

UKIP's leader, Nigel Farage has fought off accusations of racism following comments made in a radio interview about Romanians. This comes after junior party members made the headlines over comments on social media.

UKIP claim the longer-established parties have not faced similar scrutiny over the behaviour of their candidates and councillors.

On the Daily Politics, Jo Coburn asked Conservative Tim Loughton, Labour's David Lammy, Lib Dem Tom Brake and Green Jean Lambert about what some of their councillors have done, and about racism within politics.
