Tory MP suspended for using n-word let back into party

What’s the world coming to? MP Anne Marie Morris, whom may I remind you, was suspended for using the N-Word is now back in the Tory party. Back in July, Morris made headlines when she received a suspension for using the racially offensive term to describe the no-deal Brexit. The evidence was all captured on audio. PM May ordered the Conservative whip to be suspended pending an inquiry. In that same month, the Sun posted an article predicting MP Morris would get leniency despite her racial slur. Now it would appear the SUN’s prediction is coming to pass because it hasn’t even been six months and MP Morris has been reinstated.

Suspension Lifted
Morris apologized for the derogatory comment yesterday by saying she was sorry for language and it was an error in judgment. Not too long after her apology, news broke the disgraced Newton Abbot MP had the whip restored. She now back on the Tory team. It’s no secret, the Conservative party backed their party mate through this whole ordeal. Despite some people saying that the fowled month MP should resign or at least be deselected from standing as Tory next election. The party, however, disagreed and Sylvia Russell, chair of the Newton Abbot Conservatives, came out in support of Ms. Morris.

In MP Anne Morris’ apology, she said, “It was a mistake and I regret it unreservedly. I have learned from this experience and have a new determination to uphold the highest possible standards in public life. I feel proud and privileged to be a Member of Parliament and I will continue to serve my community and my country to the best of my ability.”

Not Everyone Is Happy
However, not everyone is happy to see MP Morris return. One person not happy about the whip being restored is Sir Bill Cash. The Stone MP was sitting alongside Anne Marie Morris when she made her now notorious “n-word in a woodpile” comment. He said in an interview, “I’m not happy at all with that sort of expression. I think that’s all I can say. The panelists were making their own comments in their way.” It should be noted that, Sir Bill and Tory Wokingham MP John Redwood didn’t attempt to intervene after the incident had taken place. But Sir Bill isn’t the only unhappy camper, other Politicians from across the spectrum have also expressed their disgust at Morris’s words, including Tory MP Heidi Allen, who said an apology was not enough and the party must show zero tolerance towards.
