UKIP's Janice Atkinson has further infuriated Thanet supporters Vince and Fa Munday by claiming the motive behind their outraged response to her racist 'ting tong' slur is simply 'five minutes of fame'.
The MEP made the claim on Facebook, prompting an angry response from Mr Munday.
Earlier this week Mrs Atkinson referred to Mr Munday's Thai wife as "a ting tong from somewhere" in an interview with BBC Southeast.
In a statement on Facebook Mr Munday said: "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."
After apologisig to the Mundays on behalf of the party, UKIP leader Nigel Farage said Mrs Atkinson "would not face formal sanctions".
So far the Mundays have reiterated their support for UKIP, but Mr Munday has expressed his desire to see Mrs Atkinson face further action.
