U.K. party ousts leader over anti-Markle texts
LONDON — The troubled U.K. Independence Party ousted its leader Saturday after a scandal over racist text messages sent by his girlfriend, leaving the future of the rightwing party uncertain.
A majority of party members backed a motion of no confidence in leader Henry Bolton, who had faced pressure to resign since a newspaper in mid-January published messages his girlfriend, Jo Marney, wrote about Meghan Markle, Prince Harry’s fiancee.
The party, which played a key role in the decision to leave the European Union, will now have its fourth leadership contest since 2016.
