Sack Anne Marie Morris MP

Why is this important?

On 10 July, a recording emerged of Tory MP Anne Marie Morris using the n-word while taking part in a public discussion about Brexit.

While attending an report launch event in central London, the Newton Abbey MP used the phrase “real n*****r in the woodpile” to describe a hypothetical scenario in which the UK leaves the EU without a deal.

Despite using the highly offensive term, none of her fellow panellists - including other Tory MPs - reacted.

Not one.

Which is weird because most of us know that using the n-word is wrong. Don't we?

YES, WE DO!

So it's up to us to show Morris - and anyone else who thinks it's OK to use n-word in any capacity - that it isn't.

To remind Morris and her ilk that there's no such thing as a 'totally unintentional' use of the n-word. That language is powerful, and so when you use the n-word - in any context, but especially while holding public office and in a public space - you inflict unimaginable trauma and pain on a significant section of the UK community. And this is unacceptable.

Theresa May MP - you and your party have been accused of being callous, inhumane and out of touch with modern Britain. Now more than ever, we need you to be the 'strong and stable leader' you profess to be and take a zero tolerance approach towards those who seek to divide us as a nation. Sack Morris immediately.
