UKIP leader Paul Nuttall admitted he got names wrong in the leadership debate because he cannot tell white people apart.
Nuttall confessed that he called Plaid Cymru’s Leanne Wood ‘Natalie’ because the ethnic names confused him and they all look virtually identical.
He said: “Seriously, it’s not that one from the Greens? Well you could have fooled me.
“Sharp nose, thin lips, I suppose the hair is different but not so’s you’d really notice. I think they do it deliberately.
“And the accents, dear God. That Nocola or whatever she’s called. You can’t tell me she was speaking English. It was just gobbledegook.
“I don’t know why they have to take it badly. They must realise there’s not a fag paper between them.”
He added: “They go out looking to be offended, that’s their problem. It wouldn’t bother me at all if they mistook me for Jason Statham.”
