    Default A Racist Politician...

    This time a Tory - linky


    A Conservative MP used the phrase “n***** in the woodpile” over the possibility of the UK leaving the EU without a trade deal.

    Anne Marie Morris, who has been MP for Newton Abbott since 2010, and is pro-Brexit made the comment in a discussion on financial services deals the UK could make with the EU after 2019.

    In an audio recording, obtained by the Huffington Post, other leading Tory Brexiteers MPs Bill Cash and John Redwood do not react to the use of the term.

    I'm going to check my wood carefully when I get home. Obviously, in brexit Britain, there are previously unanticipated hazards.

    What? You may uncover a racist Tory MP in it?

    Obviously means something bad, but I'm not googling it.

    That's right. The local one was unseated at the GE so it's possible.
