    Tory MP suspended for racist remark.

    MP Anne Marie Morris suspended for racist remark

    A Conservative MP has been suspended from the party after it emerged she used a racist expression during a public discussion about Brexit.

    Anne Marie Morris, the MP for Newton Abbot, used the phrase at an event in London to describe the prospect of the UK leaving the EU without a deal.

    She told the BBC: "The comment was totally unintentional. I apologise unreservedly for any offence caused."

    The Conservative Party later confirmed she had had the whip withdrawn.

    I have always said that if any person has secret racist views, eventually these views will come to light.

    The "Freudian slip" has always shown us how certain people think as it brings the hidden truth to the fore.

    Well said Paps.

    People who do not have hidden racist views have no fear of the Freudian Slip showing them up as closet racists.

    Here is the definition of the phrase Freudian Slip from the Urban Dictionary:

    Yes, the "freudian slip" is a great way to tell what a person is REALLY thinking.

    What nonsense - it could also mean they grew up when the words were acceptable and meant something. This is pure political correctness - no doubt she will resign and risk losing another seat in a by election - when a slap on the wrist after an apology would have done the trick.

    You cannot hide the racist or bigot when they are caught in a Freudian Slip.

    If they are still thinking as we used to think many years ago then they should never be in public office.

    It's not political correctness, even if a bit of PC does no wrong now and again.
