UKIP leader breaks up with girlfriend over racist texts

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

Leader of the UK Independence Party Henry Bolton, speaks during a press conference in Torquay, south-west England, on September 29, 2017.

Jo Marney, a 25-year-old model, had described Meghan Markle, Prince Harry's fiancée, as a "black American" who would "taint" the royal family and said "this is Britain, not Africa", according to The Mail on Sunday.

Mr Bolton said UKIP's the chairman was "right" to suspend Ms Marney, but would not say whether he thought she should be thrown out of the party, saying the decision was "nothing to do with him".

A senior UKIP figure told him: "The chances of Henry Bolton surviving as UKIP leader are extremely small".

Marney also described black people as ugly.

House of Representatives of Haitian descent, said that his "behavior is unacceptable from the leader of our nation". And as Piers Morgan quizzed Ivana on the alleged comment, Ivana said the president is "definitely not racist".

"However appalling and insulting those comments she made in those direct personal messages were".

Last year, Prince Harry criticised a number of social media comments and media outlets for negative references to Markle's African-American heritage. The couple announced in November that they were engaged and will marry in May.

If Mr Bolton were to leave the party it would force UKIP to elect its fifth leader in 18 months.

The party has struggled to find a role since the plebiscite and has been beset by infighting.

But UKIP has been riven by internal strife since the referendum as it struggles for direction and a clear objective and it won just 1.8 per cent of the total votes cast in a national election last June.

Mr Bolton deserted his wife and their two young children at Christmas after meeting Jo Marney, a model and Ukip member who is nearly 30 years his junior.

"One of the worrying aspects about this on a political level is that people have used Jo -and they have been able to, of course, because of her comments - in order to attack me", he told the BBC.

Embattled Mr Bolton tried to save his job by dumping mistress Jo Marney yesterday and defended her comments.

He said: "I'm going to stand by her and the family in terms of trying to put her life back together".
