4 ISSUE 100 / 2017 NEWS A RACIST OUTBURST FROM A RACIST FAMILY IN A RACIST PARTY Tory MP Anne Marie Morris described Britain leaving the EU without a deal as a "real n**** in the woodpile." The statement came as the 60-year-old MP for Newton Abbot was speaking at an event in the East India Club, the Oxford graduate said: "Now I'm sure there will be many people who'll challenge that, but my response and my request is look at the detail, it isn't all doom and gloom." "Now we get to the real n***** in the woodpile which is, in two years what if there is no deal." The phrase used by Morris originates from the Deep South in the US, it refers to slaves that had to hide from slave owners as they fought for their freedom, by fleeing to the north. Unfortunately, by the 20th century, the statement began to be used to describe a hidden fact or problem. Despite the disturbing history behind the remark, none of Morris's peers, including Tory MPs Bill Cash and John Redwood reacted when she made the statement. However, it seems that the apple doesn't fall far from the tree, in June, Morris's partner and electoral agent Roger Kendrick said: " that the crisis in education was due entirely to non-British born immigrants and their birth rates." It is also worth noting that this isn't the first time that a government official has been caught using the N-word. At least 7 other MPs have used the word publicly. LONDON NEWS Last month the Crown Prosecution Service announced that they would not be charging around 20 Tory MP's over alleged electoral fraud. Although the tories had failed to accurately declare their expenditure over the course of the 2015 elections. The CPS have now charged Tory MP Craig Mackinlay, along with Nathan Gray (Mackinlay's Election Agent) and Marion Little (Conservative Campaign HQ), one month after the original announcement. Back in 2015, Craig Mackinlay ran a campaign against ex-UKIP Leader Nigel Farage and won in their constituency of South Thanet. Investigations into the source of funds at that time failed to produce the necessary evidence and the cases were dismissed. The CPS have now concluded that they now have enough evidence to charge Mackinlay and two others. ELECTION FRAUD LOOMS LARGE OVER THE TORIES
