(BBC NEWS) – 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.
