We are led to believe that tomorrow’s Sun newspaper will run an article alleging UKIP leader Henry Bolton has been caught having an affair. Much has been said about this on Facebook, so we bring you his comments.
Bolton responds to this allegation as follows, “Tomorrow morning, some of you may find yourselves reading the Sun newspaper. If you do then inside you might find a piece that’s been written about me; specifically talking about my private life. The potential story is going to confirm that in recent weeks, I’ve had a change in my relationship status.”
“The story might also suggest (inaccurately) that this change has involved a clandestine affair with a young lady who happens also to be a member of UKIP.”
We are aware that persons in UKIP are circulating posts about Xmas selfies of Henry Bolton and a UKIP member, Jo Marney.
“If you follow me on social media – and hopefully you all do – you will have already seen that recently I have spent time with somebody who has become increasingly important to me. This isn’t something that I’ve hidden.”
Bolton continued, “As you will probably realise, since I was elected in September, the media have been pretty keen to find something negative to write about me. I am in a new relationship and the media have latched onto that. However, whilst I fully accept that as a national political figure I can expect to be the subject of media attention, I also believe we’re all entitled to a certain degree of privacy. As such, I’ll be making no further comment on the matter.”
“If you see the story tomorrow, take it for what it is, but also be confident that it in no way distracts me or our party from the vital mission we have ahead of us.”
