Chislehurst UKIP MEP Janice Atkinson has added more fire to racist claims by accusing supporters Vince and Fa Munday of seeking ‘five minutes of fame’.

The UKIP supporters were left infuriated by the comments made by Atkinson on Facebook and comes after the MEP referred to Mr Munday’s wife as “a ting tong from somewhere” in a BBC interview earlier this week.

In the Facebook message she confirms seeing Mr Munday’s statement and suggests his account may have been hacked before saying ‘Let him have his 5 mins of fame’.

In another statement made by Mr Munday on the social networking site, he says: “This is Janice Atkinson’s opinion of why I’m angry about her racist comments about my wife, apparently it’s for 5 minutes of fame.

“How wonderful of her boss Nigel Farage to come all the way from London to apologise to appease my need for attention! Really? How arrogant can this woman be, does it sound like she’s sorry? No of course not.”

However, party leader Nigel Farage has said Mrs Atkinson will not face formal sanctions for her comments.

Councillor Nicholas Bennett says...

I met Janice Atkinson when she was Janice Small and seeking to be a Tory parliamentary candidate. Her profession was Public Relations and her number one client was herself. Shallow, Egocentric and without any self awareness, she wondered why selection committees didn't warm to her. I'm not surprised she jumped ship to UKIP.

Re Councillor Bennett:

I am a member of UKIP and I am not enamoured by her. She is a female Godfrey, we are constantly on edge, waiting for the next piece of ignorance, or gaffe... I suppose that is the problem with graciously receiving ex-CONservatives though. Remember that bloke with the gays and the rain... He was one too.

Godfrey was an original, he had some interesting stuff to say, but he kept exercising what he thought was marvellous wit, but which some people found mildly amusing in context, but regarded by many more as foot in mouth stuff.

But what do I know?
