Ukip leader's girlfriend, Jo Marney, suspended over 'racist' Meghan Markle comments

In the texts, Marney gave a list of reasons why she doesn't like Markle.

Peter Whittle, leader of UKIP's delegation in the London Assembly, also called for Ms Marney to be "expelled" for the "disgraceful remarks".

THE glamour model girlfriend of Ukip's chief was last night accused of sending a series of racist tweets about Meghan Markle.

Marney's boyfriend, Bolton, was also criticized recently after he made a decision to leave his wife, Tatiana Smurova, so he could be with his much younger girlfriend.

Ominously for him, Mr Oakden said: "Henry is increasingly in a position where he has got hard decisions to make".

Senior party officials are to discuss the leader's private life at a crunch meeting over his future later this month.

His position looks increasingly shaky as there is no recent precedent for the partner of the leader of any political party to have been suspended from that party.

Ms Marney wrote that Ms Markle, a United States actress whose mother is black and father is white, will "taint" the royal family, the paper quoted one of her messages as saying. She also dubbed the former actress as a "dumb little commoner".

"Next will be a Muslim PM (prime minister)".


Elsewhere in the correspondence, she reportedly said that the royal relationship could lead to a "black king", and complains about immigration and "not wanting other races and cultures to invade your own". She's a black American. Not my thing. Just personal taste.

Calls for the suspension and expulsion of Jo Marney, who describes herself as a "Presenter".

Upon being called a "racist" by her male friend in response, Marney responded: "Lol so what?"

Marney made a public apology, though she qualified it by saying that her comments had been taken out of context.

In a statement to the MoS Ms Marney said she apologised "unreservedly" for the "shocking language" she used in the messages.

She added: "The opinions I expressed were deliberately exaggerated in order to make a point and have, to an extent, been taken out of context". Yet I fully recognise the offence they have caused.

"I have disappointed them all and let myself down. I can not sufficiently express my regret and sadness at having done so", Marney added. She also said she would never have sex with "a negro" because they are "ugly".

The Mail on Sunday said Ms Marney sent the messages three weeks before her relationship with Mr Bolton started. If he were to quit, it would leave UKIP seeking its fifth leader in 18 months.

"The time has come for Henry Bolton to resign as leader of Ukip".
