    Conservative MP recorded using the N-word

    The political future of Tory MP Anne Marie Morris is in some doubt this evening after a recording was released of her using the N-word in a meeting with party colleagues. Lest anyone starts getting all pedantic and semantic, the word in question is a derogatory term for black people that starts with N and rhymes with "bigger".

    The context was a discussion on Brexit, specifically the prospect of the UK leaving the EU with no deal. Ms Morris wonders, "And then we get to the real n_____ in the woodpile which is in two years what happens if there is no deal?"



    None of her colleagues seem to react to the usage of the word which suggests that, for them, it's nothing out of the ordinary to hear it.

    As things stand, it looks certain that she will lose the party whip. Perhaps she should join Sinn Féin where such language is regarded rather more benignly.



    Readers may also recall how Enda Kenny got into hot water in the early years of the last decade after recounting a story in which a Moroccan barman used the same term.

    Another anti-SF thread dressed up as something else.
    It's so predictable at this stage, it's hilarious!

    Meh, she used an old fashioned expression and wasn't seeking to cause offense to anybody, stop being so precious. And you know exactly what Adams was trying to say with that stupid tweet.

    Enda's use of that particular derogatory word was then times worse than that old Tory fuddy duddy.

    All the same, it was a rather cretinous tweet by the Widowkiller! He may walk on water in various deprived areas of our island, but that doesn't make him West Belfast's clone of Jimmy Rabbitte junior.
