UKIP LEADER LANDS IN TROUBLE ,FOR RACIST REMARKS MADE BY HIS GIRLFRIEND ABOUT MEGHAN MARKLE
The leader of Britain’s anti-EU, anti-immigration UK Independence Party (UKIP) has been called to resign on Sunday after his girlfriend reportedly made racist remarks about Prince Harry’s fiancee Meghan Markle.
According to the news, Marney (Bolton’s girlfriend) wrote messages to a friend complaining that Meghan Markle an American actress of mixed race who is due to marry Harry in May would “taint our royal family” with her “seed”. “Next will be a Muslim PM (prime minister). And a black king,”.
In a statement, Marney said her remarks were deliberately exaggerated to make a point and were taken out of context, but that she fully recognises the offence they have caused.
Henry Bolton, who was elected in September, said his 25-year-old partner Jo Marney had been suspended from the party after the text messages were published in the Mail on Sunday newspaper. But one party politician said she should have been expelled, while a UKIP member of the European Parliament said it was time for the “inexperienced” leader to “go quietly”.
Bolton is the third elected leader of UKIP since Nigel Farage resigned after helping secure a vote to leave European Union in June 2016, and the party has struggled to find a role. UKIP chairman Paul Oakden said that Bolton, who recently made headlines due to his decision to leave his wife and date Marney, had some “difficult decisions to make”.
