Partner of UKIP leader suspended by party over racist comments about Meghan Markle

The girlfriend of Henry Bolton, the leader of UKIP, has been suspended from the party after she made deeply offensive and racist comments about royal bride-to-be Meghan Markle.

According to the Mail on Sunday, 25-year-old Jo Marney claimed that Meghan would ‘taint’ The Royal Family with ‘her seed’ and pave the way for a ‘black King’.

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.’

In the conversation, she also says ‘next will be a Muslim PM. And a black king,’ adding ‘this is Britain, not Africa.’

Following The Mail’s report, Miss Marney released a statement, saying: “I apologise unreservedly for the shocking language I used. 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.

“No offence was intended and, again, I apologise unreservedly for any such offence or hurt that my messages have caused to members of the public, members of Ukip my friends, family and loved ones.

“I have disappointed them all and let myself down. I cannot sufficiently express my regret and sadness at having done so.”

UKIP chairman Paul Oakden said: “In light of messages that have been brought to my attention, I have taken the decision to immediately suspend her party membership pending an investigation. Ukip does not, has not and never will condone racism.”

It emerged a couple of weeks ago that UKIP Leader, Henry Bolton, was in a relationship with Miss Marney, who is a model.

He is now facing calls to resign, with the party’s National Executive Committee meeting on Thursday to decide his future.

If Mr Bolton resigned or is sacked by UKIP, the party will elect its fifth leader in 18 months.

    He should resign immidiately. That woman should be banned from modelling jobs where the idea is to represent or promote brands. No company would like to use a self righteous, self centered, stupid, narrow minded, big time racist! She’s like a disease in society! She should be banned from getting any jobs!

    • AdlaiStevenson

      Quite right.

    • Trut Tella

      Megan Markle should be banned from TV because she’s offensive to the eyes.

  • sherwood

    Wow, what a racist moron.

  • Celya723

    Karma for her and her sweetie will be immediate and it won’t be fun or full of kindly understanding. Wretched fool.

  • Debra Ranson

    “No offense was intended”….really, Sweetie…we aren’t that stupid.

  • jacqueline nemorin

    For God sakes, she has been called worse things! but why is it that people can´t speak their thoughts? and it is true to most of the things she said about MRS MM in her remarks. so now are we all going to be scared to speaks our truths cus we will lose our jobs etc.,? MRS MM knew what she was going to get herself in for!!!
    Everyone has their points and we do have a free press don´t we? just saying!

  • Trut Tella

    100% reasonable comments.

    IF Harry had to find a mulattress, there are about 50 million more attractive ones in Brazil alone, who haven’t been made airtight by the Weinsteins on the casting couch and aren’t too old to have non-retarded kids.

    it’s actually quite the opposite, the crown prince is bringing new
    genetic material into the family to fix his own genetic deficiency also
    known as gingerism, in that regard an asian bride would be the most appropriate but that’s not culturally acceptable..
