Rob Ford swears, slurs and adopts Jamaican accent - video

YOU might think that Toronto mayor Rob Ford would be running out of new ways to offend and appal his constituents. Luckily, the man who admitted to smoking crack cocaine while in an alcoholic stupor, still has a few tricks up his sleeve.

Here he is in a fast-food restaurant "swearing at staff" while apparently trying to imitate a Jamaican accent, reports the Daily Telegraph. Confronted by reporters, Ford confirmed the video was shot on Monday night and yes, he had been drinking.

"A little bit, yeah," he said.

Asked if he considered his latest video offensive, Ford said: "No, I was with some friends and what I do in my personal life with my personal friends, that's up to me. If I speak that way, that's how I speak with some of my friends. I don't think it's discriminative at all. I didn't drive. It's my own time." ·
