UKIP leader under fire for lover's 'racist' royal slur

UKIP leader under fire for lover's 'racist' royal slur

The U.K. Independence Party has suspended the membership of the girlfriend of the party's leader, after she reportedly made racist remarks about Prince Harry's fiancee, American actress Meghan Markle.

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

Published by The Daily Mail on Saturday, the messages purportedly include a comment from Marney saying Markle's "seed will taint our Royal Family." .

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". At last year's election in June, UKIP won 1.8 percent of the vote. He must go quickly, he must go quietly, as soon as possible.

Peter Whittle, former deputy leader of Ukip, called for Marney to be permanently suspended, tweeting: "These are disgraceful remarks".

Mr Bolton, whose relationship with Ms Marney is under investigation, has not commented on the messages, although he took to Twitter in the early hours of Sunday morning to deny other allegations about their relationship.

Social media posts unearthed by the British tabloid the Sun after revealing Marney's relationship with Bolton show her calling London a "shanty town" because of "foreigners bringing their customs over here" and also branding women accusing Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment and assault as "whinging little divas".

In a letter to members, Oakden said the National Executive Committee ruling body agreed to discuss the leader's private life at a special meeting in January.

It piles more pressure on Mr Bolton, who has already attracted negative publicity by announcing he was leaving his second wife Tatiana Smurova for Ms Marney.

UKIP party chairman Paul Oakden said he chose to suspend Ms Marney's party membership immediately after he was made aware of 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", she added.

On Sunday a teenage activist called on Mr Bolton to back calls for Ms Marney to be expelled from Ukip.

Ms Marney also disclosed that she would never have sex with "a negro" because they are "ugly".
