Tory peer Michelle Mone accused of sending racist message in row over fatal yacht crash

Scots Tory peer Michelle Mone has been accused of messaging a man of Indian heritage to say that he was “a waste of a man’s white skin”.

The businesswoman from Glasgow is believed to have sent the WhatsApp text in June 2019 to a financial consultant following a fallout about a fatal boat crash off the coast of Monaco.

Mone, who has denied the claims, is alleged to have sent the messages during an exchange on the social media messaging application.

The 50-year-old bra entrepreneur, who has been a member of the House of Lords since being appointed in 2015 by David Cameron, will not be investigated by the upper house at Westminster because the messages were not sent when she was carrying out parliamentary duties.

Screenshots seen by the Guardian newspaper also appear to show Mone making remarks about the mental health of the man’s partner.

Michelle Mone Biography, Wiki

Michelle is one of the UK’s most successful female entrepreneurs and founder of international lingerie brand, Ultimo.

She was born in 1951 and grew up in Glasgow. Her early ambitions were to become a model and she left school at the age of 15 to pursue her dream, but after falling pregnant with her first child and getting married she left the idea of becoming a model behind her.

After working at a marketing job with brewer Labatt for two years she was promoted to their head of marketing in Scotland.

It was whilst wearing an uncomfortable cleavage enhancing brassiere at a dinner dance that Michelle thought she could create a better, and more comfortable, design. She had read about a new silicone product while on holiday in Florida, and obtained the European licence to make bras from it.

She founded MJM International Ltd in November 1996, and three years of research, design, and development resulted in the patented Ultimo bra. The company was launched in the traditional ship building district of Glasgow, Govan, bringing to needed jobs an area which has experienced a long period of decline.

Then in 1999, the Ultimo bra was launched at Selfridges department store in London, becoming an instant best-seller.

Selfridges sold the pre-launch estimate of six weeks of stock within 24 hours, which is still known as the biggest ever bra launch in the UK, with over 50 photographers present and camera crews from all over the world.

For her entrepreneurial activities, Michelle won the World Young Business Achiever Award in April 2000.

Michelle was voted as Britain’s Number One most powerful woman in business by Glamour magazine as well as receiving an OBE from The Queen in 2010 in recognition of her services to UK business.

Michelle is a dedicated charity supporter, fund-raiser and volunteer and has raised thousands of pounds for organisations of all sizes. She is represented in the UK by Useful Talent who are specialists in celebrity led endorsements, advertising contracts, PR campaigns, corporate entertainment, product launches and personal appearances.

Michelle Mono Career

Mone obtained a marketing job with the Labatt brewing company and, within two years, had risen to become its head of marketing in Scotland. 

She was made redundant by the company, prompting her to set up her own business and has since admitted that she exaggerated qualifications on her CV to obtain the job.

While wearing a very uncomfortable cleavage-enhancing brassière at a dinner dance, Mone realised she could improve the design. Her stated aims were to create a brassière that was both more comfortable and better looking, whilst enhancing more cleavage. 

Mone had read about a new silicone product while on holiday in Florida and approached the company to obtain its European licence to produce bras.

She was awarded an OBE for her outstanding contribution to business in 2010 by Queen Elizabeth II.

On 27 August 2015, Downing Street announced her elevation to the peerage, and she was introduced in the House of Lords on 15 October by fellow Conservative peers Lord Freud and Baroness Morris of Bolton.
