UKIP leader's girlfriend suspended for racist comments about Meghan Markle

According to the Mail on Sunday, Marney allegedly made a string of explosively racist remarks about Prince Harry's fiancée, claiming the black actress's entry into the Royal Family would "pave the way for a black king".

The 54-year-old Ukip leader left his 42-year-old wife after he met Marney shortly before Christmas.

Mr Bolton's 25-year-old partner Jo Marney sent a series of messages to a friend in which she made highly offensive comments about Prince Harry's fiancee and black people, the Mail on Sunday said.

"I apologise unreservedly for the shocking language I used", she said in a statement.

Ms Marney's suspension from the party comes as Mr Bolton faces an investigation by senior UKIP officials into his private life that may have consequences for his future as party leader.

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".

Mr Bolton has said that his relationship is a private matter but that has not stopped the party calling a special meeting, due to take place this week, to consider the allegations.

Since the abhorrent nature of the texts were revealed, Marney has been suspended from UKIP.

Marney was suspended by Ukip after being alerted to the messages.

"If @_HenryBolton truly cares about @UKIP he will publicly call for Jo Marney removal from the party her words were blatantly racist and there should be no room for that in UKIP", the young party member said. The opinions I expressed were deliberately exaggerated in order to make a point and have, to an extent, been taken out of context.

In messages to a friend, Miss Marney describes Meghan as "a scrubber" and a 'gender equality t***' who is a 'dumb little commoner... obsessed with race'.

Ukip's National Executive Committee is set to meet on Thursday to decide the party leader's fate. "Yet I fully recognized the offense they have caused", she said.

In replying Mr Bolton tweeted: "Jo was suspended immediately upon us receiving this information".
