Ukip leader's girlfriend suspended over racist texts about Meghan Markle

Charlie Proctor 2017

Meghan Markle was recently criticized by Ukip leader Henry Bolton's girlfriend, Jo Marney.

Following the incident, Marney apologized for her comments and said that they were taken out of context.

"It is quite apparent that he does not have the experience, the nous, or the correct advice to deal with the issues that he faces".

The relationship between Marney and Bolton made headlines in the United Kingdom earlier this month, after the UKIP leader confirmed he split from his Russian wife and was now involved with a "young lady who happens also to be a member of UKIP", denying he had a "clandestine affair", as the BBC reported.

Markle, who will Wednesday Harry in May, has spoken publicly and written about being proudly biracial, and also about how it affected her acting career.

He said: "UKIP does not, has not and never will condone racism". Ukip's chairman, Paul Oakden, has said he realises the "strength of feeling on this" among grassroot members. "He must go, he must go quickly, he must go as quietly as possible".

UKIP's London Assembly Member Peter Whittle called the remarks "disgraceful" and called for her expulsion.

He claimed that his marriage to Ms Smurova was already over when he met Miss Marney, and has said: 'I have no doubt I'm going to come out of this, and Jo and I are going to come out of this as a couple, stronger than we went into it'.

Bolston's private life noneless became the subject of an internal party investigation, with a meeting of UKIP's national executive committee planned for next Thursday to discuss fallout from the relationship, as British newspaper The Times reported. "Lol so what", she wrote, when the other person called her racist.

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".

In replying, Mr Bolton tweeted: "Jo was suspended immediately upon us receiving this information". "Yet I fully recognise the offence they have caused", Ms Marney said in a statement.

On her Twitter profile Marney describes herself as a model, actor and journalist, as well as a Brexiteer.

Meanwhile former UKIP leadership candidate Ben Walker called for Bolton to quit, accusing him of having "deeply flawed judgement".

Mr Bolton, 54, confirmed his relationship with Ms Marney in a letter to UKIP supporters earlier this month, after splitting up with his wife.

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.

Mr Oakden declined to give his own views on Mr Bolton's situation, but said the party needs to be "behind our leader 100% in taking that battle (for Brexit) forward".
