  • Jo Marney described Prince Harry’s fiancee as a “negro”

LONDON — UKIP has suspended its leader’s girlfriend over a series
of racist text messages she apparently sent about Prince Harry’s
fiancee Meghan Markle. 

Jo Marney, who is currently in a relationship with UKIP leader
Henry Bolton, said Markle would “taint” the Royal Family and had
a “tiny brain,” in messages published by The Mail
On Sunday
.

She also described Markel as a “negro” and said that black people
were ugly.

Marney has apologised for the remarks but insisted they had been
taken out of context. Bolton has so far refused to comment.

Marney sent the messages around three weeks before she entered a
relationship with the current UKIP leader, the Mail On Sunday
adds.

Here are Bolton and Marney:

In the messages, Marney also describes Markel as a “dumb little
commoner” and says “just don’t like her… she’s a black
American.”

She adds: “Not wanting other races and cultures to invade your
own culture doesn’t mean I hate their race. Just means I don’t
want their cultures invading mine.”

“I apologise unreservedly for the shocking language I used,”
Marney told the Mail On Sunday.

“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.”

Peter Whittle, the party’s former deputy leader, has called for
UKIP to kick Marney out of the party.

“These are disgraceful remarks.

“This person should not just be suspended… but expelled
altogether,” he said.
