Ukip leader Henry Bolton dumped over relationship with Maidstone model Jo Marney

Monday 19th February 2018


KENT-based Ukip leader Henry Bolton has lost the support of party members to stay on in the role after a high-profile scandal hit his leadership.

The Folkestone resident has only been in the post for a little over five months.

The party’s extraordinary general meeting at the weekend - attended by 1,500 activists - followed a no confidence vote in him by the party’s National Executive Committee. They backed the NEC.

Mr Bolton had been rocked by controversies over his relationship with Jo Marney, from Maidstone. She pluged his leadership into crisis after she made alleged racist Tweets abourt Meghan Markle, Prince Harry's fiance.
