The Tory MP who was suspended after using the n-word has been let back into the party.
Anne Marie Morris faced disciplinary action in July when a recording emerged of her describing a no-deal Brexit as ‘the real n***** in the woodpile’.
Theresa May immediately ordered the Conservative whip to be suspended, meaning that she was removed from the party and was essentially sitting as an independent MP.
Morris, MP for Newton Abbot, has now had the whip restored after she apologised.
She said she ‘regrets’ using the ‘inappropriate and offensive language’, and claimed that it was a ‘mistake’.
‘It was a mistake and I regret it unreservedly,’ she said. ‘I have learned from this experience and have a new determination to uphold the highest possible standards in public life.
‘I feel proud and privileged to be a Member of Parliament and I will continue to serve my community and my country to the best of my ability.’
After the audio recording first emerged, Morris apologised ‘for any offence caused’.
May said the comment was ‘completely unacceptable’, adding: ‘Language like this has absolutely no place in politics or in today’s society.’
