An investigation is to be launched after squabbling UKIP MEPs traded insults in Parliament, according to Parliament Magazine.
According to the article, Godfrey Bloom called Nikki Sinclaire a ‘queer’. She says she was so "shocked" by the comment that it took her two days to lodge a formal complaint with the Speaker (Parliament’s President, Jerzy Buzek).Meanwhile, Sinclaire has announced she is taking legal action against UKIP for alleged discrimination based on sexual orientation. Sinclaire said some Members of Ukip's political Group in the EP, the “Europe of Freedom and Democracy (EFD)” Group, had "extreme views", something that she has apparently only discovered now!
As a result, she now refuses to sit with her own party members in parliamentary meetings.
