TORY MPs have pleaded for understanding as they struggle to overcome their debilitating problem of being unintentionally racist.
Following the suspension of Anne Morris, MP for Newton Abbot, for the use of a racist metaphor that was completely beyond her control, more Tory MPs have bravely admitted their own issues.
Backbencher Denys Finch-Hatton said: “If you’re not born like this it must be easy. I envy you. But for me it’s a battle every single day.
“Every speech I get through without calling ‘them’ genetically less intelligent and every public appearance where I don’t brandish a golliwog is a victory, but the next morning I start all over again.
“And now, because of these cameraphones, we’re expected to not be racist even in private. That’s inhuman.”
He added: “We can’t enact openly racist policies, we can’t be racist socially, and now we’re not even allowed to use archaic racist metaphors? Enough is enough.
“I’m just so thankful Article 50’s been triggered. In less than two years my people can breathe free.”
