Controversial MEP Godfrey Bloom launches his autobiography
8:56am Monday 14th October 2013 in News
CONTROVERSIAL Yorkshire MEP Godfrey Bloom will launch his autobiography this week after quitting his party’s European group following comments he made to a group of female activists.
Mr Bloom, from Wressle, near Selby, who was a UKIP member until resigning to serve the rest of his term in the European Parliament as an independent, called the women “sluts” while addressing an event at the party’s annual conference, although he said it was intended as a joke.
He subsequently had the UKIP whip withdrawn, but has remained a member of the party despite his independent status as an MEP.
His book, A Guinea A Minute, will be launched at The Barnes Wallis pub in Station Road, North Howden, on Thursday, between 2pm and 4pm.
