Pressure on UKIP leader over girlfriend’s Meghan Markle’s texts

UKIP leader Henry Bolton is under pressure to resign after his girlfriend was suspended by the party for apparently making racist remarks about Meghan Markle.

Jo Marney apologised in the Mail on Sunday for saying Prince Harry’s fiancee would “taint” the Royal Family and black people were ugly.

Party members are urging Mr Bolton to step aside “quickly” and “quietly”.

He has not responded but retweeted a message urging him not to quit.

Ms Marney, a 25-year-old model, claimed her texts, published by the paper, were taken out of context.

Revealed: UKIP chief’s glamour model lover, 25, joked with friend about raping a BABY – as he defies ‘ditch her or quit’ calls and stands by his mistress after her apology for racist texts about Meghan Markle

  • Ukip leader’s 25-year-old model girlfriend compared baby rape to animal abuse
  • Comes as Jo Marney was revealed to have sent racist texts about Meghan Markle
  • Henry Bolton is under pressure to resign as leader of the party amid the scandal 

Ukip leader Henry Bolton was on the brink of resigning last night after it emerged his mistress had joked online about sexual abuse of babies.

He was told to either dump his 25-year-old girlfriend Jo Marney or go.

Mr Bolton, 54, has faced growing calls to step down since the Mail revealed he had left his third wife for the model and Ukip member.

The pressure intensified yesterday when Miss Marney was suspended from the party over a series of racist messages in which she branded black people as ‘ugly’ and warned that Meghan Markle’s genes would ‘taint our royal family’.

Today the Mail can reveal Miss Marney has plumbed even further depths with horrific messages in which she joked with a friend about raping a baby.

Ukip leader ‘to choose party or girlfriend’

Ukip’s chairman has increased the pressure on his party’s embattled leader, Henry Bolton, whose girlfriend has been suspended as a member for making racist remarks about Meghan Markle.

Mr Bolton, 54, was already facing calls from senior colleagues to quit after it emerged that he had left his third wife for Jo Marney, 25. She is under investigation by Ukip after she sent a series of messages to a friend in which she made offensive comments about Prince Harry’s fiancée. Ms Markle, as a “black American”, would “taint” the royal family and pave the way for a black king, Ms Marney said in the messages, according to The Mail on Sunday.

Meghan text storm leaves Ukip leader Henry Bolton on brink

UKIP’S leader will need to ditch his lover to save his job after she sent racist text messages about Prince Harry’s fiancée, the party’s chairman has hinted.

Henry Bolton, 54, needs to decide how to ‘help remedy the situation’, Paul Oakden said as 25-year-old Jo Marney’s remarks about Meghan Markle emerged.

‘Henry is increasingly in a position where he has got some difficult decisions to make,’ Mr Oakden said. ‘I’m sure whatever he does will be in the best interests of the party.’

Ukip MEP Bill Etheridge said: ‘It appears to me that the lack of experience in politics from Henry has got the better of him. We are seeing Ukip resources used to defend Henry’s private life.

‘He must go, he must go quickly, he must go as quietly as possible.’

  1. News coming out from UKIP this evening is that Henry Bolton has been asking if dumping his girlfriend will make everything okay?

    On LBC this evening the ex deputy leader Susanne Evens has also called for him to go.

    Henry Bolton will also be on LBC tomorrow morning speaking to Nick Ferrari, could we hear a public resignation? After many members and party top brass have called for him to go.
    Nigel Farage has also ingnored calls from the press association to call for him to go.

  2. Bill Etheridge is a complete joke, not least a womaniser who dumped his wife for a ‘bit on the side’. Strange how he is preaching fom the moral hgh ground.
    What an idiot.

  3. Latest news is that Bolton has now also split from his new love Jo Marney to concentrate on the Party’s future.

    Bill Etheridge has now after saying it during the leadership election resigned, but not from the party from his role as UKIP sports spokesman.
    This just out “I am resigning as a spokesman for UKIP and focussing in pursuing Brexit through public meetings and rallies .
    I also urge members to contact the NEC to call for the removal of Henry Bolton before his ego finally drags the party down”

  4. Bill Etheridge has said this morning “I am resigning as a spokesman for UKIP and focussing in pursuing Brexit through public meetings and rallies .

    We have also learned this morning that Henry Bolton has split with his girlfriend Jo Marney due to media and party pressure! It is a sad state of affairs (rather an apt phrase all considering) the pressure must have got to much for Bolton for last night UKIP sources said he asked if he ditched Jo could he could still be leader. He was on the brink last night of resigning but this morning he must have had a change of heart and said instead he and Jo had split up.
    On LBC last night Both Suzanne Evens ex-deputy and leadership candidate also called for him to resign.
    The calls are still coming from UKIP members and Senior Party officials that he should still resign.

    While Bolton has stayed on by a thread as UKIP leader his mistress is yet in the media spotlight this time for joking online about sexual abuse of babies.

    Today the Mail has revealed Miss Marney has plumbed even further depths with horrific messages in which she joked with a friend about raping a baby.

    Mr Bolton would have known about what was going to come out today so has been told to cut ties so he doesn’t get roped in and bring UKIP further into decline.
    He should go he has lied constantly how can you trust him to lead a Party when he cant even run his own personal life.
