Ukip MEP Godfrey Bloom says he will not use the term “bongo bongo land” again after he was asked not to do so by his party chairman, but refused to apologise for his comments.

Godfrey Bloom, the Ukip MEP for Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire was recorded in July at a meeting near Stourbridge, making a speech in which he said:

“How we can possibly be giving a billion pounds a month when we’re in this sort of debt to bongo bongo land is completely beyond me.”

He has since been questioned over his comments by the BBC’s Today programme and said:

“If I’ve offended anybody in bongo bongo land, I shall write to the ambassador at the Court of St James’s and apologise to him personally.”

Despite refusing to apologise, Mr Bloom aknowledged that his comments may have been misconstrued by former President Omar Bongo of Gabon and said he would write to him to apologise.

Ukip said the matter was being considered by party heads and Mr Bloom has been asked not to use the term “bongo bong” by the party chairman.
