Girlfriend of Ukip leader suspended for rasict Meghan Markle comment

Henry Bolton pointing to this right as he speaks behind a podium

A Ukip spokesman said Ms Marney had been suspended from the party.

The prince issued a strongly worded statement condemning the "outright sexism and racism" in some comments about Markle, and said some articles with "racial undertones" crossed the line.

One of the party's MEPs said Mr Bolton, 54, should step aside "quickly", calling him a "naive political lightweight" whose personal life was distracting from policy.

Nuttall resigned after seven months following the Election, when Ukip's polled less than 2 per cent. Steve Crowther took over until Mr Bolton was elected in September.

In a statement, Marney said her remarks were "deliberately exaggerated to make a point" and were taken out of context, but "I fully recognise the offence they have caused".

"She has to go or he and @UKIP are doomed if we let this behaviour happen in the party", the teenage activist said.

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

Former UKIP leadership candidate Ben Walker also called for Mr Bolton's resignation.

"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".

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.

Bournemouth Fight Back to Shock Arsenal in the Premier League on Sunday
Bournemouth came from behind to beat Arsenal 2-1 in their Premier League match thanks to goals from Callum Wilson and Jordon Ibe . Referee Kevin Friend had a brilliant view but turned down strong appeals from those in red and black.

The newspaper also published an apology from Ms Marney.

He tweeted: "Utterly false!"

A push alert that warned of a ballistic missile heading straight for Hawaii and sent residents into a full-blown panic on Saturday was a mistake, state emergency officials have said. "The woman just in shot is a BBC staffer".

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

Bolton is set to face a crunch meeting over his future as Ukip's National Executive Committee will convene on Thursday to decide his fate.

"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.

On Sunday, he dismissed claims on Twitter that he was in Ms Marney's company when he appeared on television in mid-October as "rubbish".

UKIP has been wracked by upheaval in recent months, burning through leaders with Bolton the fourth appointee to the position since late 2016.

"I woke up and saw a missile warning and thought 'no way.' I thought 'No, this is not happening today, '" Malapit said.
