Chislehurst-based UKIP MEP Janice Atkinson has said sorry for calling a Thai constituent a 'ting tong'. 

The South East member was recorded by the BBC making the remark about Fa Munday, who she had met while in Kent.

Mrs Atkinson is reported to have said: "We've got Fa who's, I dunno, she's a ting tong from somewhere". 

Fa and her husband Vincent, both supporters of the party, have been left shocked by the comments, while Mrs Atkinson has apologised for her choice of words.

Last week News Shopper talked to the UKIP welfare policy author about her intention to stand for Parliament in 2015.

Speaking on Friday (Aug 15), Mrs Atkinson mentioned a past incident where she had put her middle finger up to three Green Party campaigners.

Very narrow minded. The sort of abusive comments you never expect to hear even with UKIPs shocking reputation on tollerance.

Bit like the way the BBC sacked someone for playing a song on a radio station that offended people, but it's ok for that arrogant t0sser Jeremy Clarkson to say what he likes!

That's not quite true, DJ David Lowe broadcast the 'N' word live on air, offered to resign, the BBC accepted and then the BBC agreed it had been heavy handed and so offered him his job back. Clarkson never used the 'N' word in anything broadcast.

'Ting tong' seems to evoke 'sing-song' oriental languages and names but also, I feel, conjures up a sense of inadequacy, anonymity and/or irrelevance. With regard to the latter, no wonder it touched a nerve with News Shopper's anonymous trolls!

I hadn't finished my sentence, ....
..also little brittain highlighted many of those narrow minded misconceptions on virtually every person in our society (except me of course). These sorts of offensive phrases are not acceptable and I bet even the far right would not be so rude as to use these derrogative terms. Even the far right wouldn't vote for your party uk ip, because your way of out ting your point across is badly thought out just like our policies.
