Nigger in the woodpile comment

Discussion in 'The Intelligence Cell' started by Slime, Jul 10, 2017.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Ive just caught the end of a news item on the 6.30pm ITV news where a conservative MP has been recorded using the phrase nigger in the woodpile!

    A couple of immediate thoughts are: how stupid are some of our current MPs to keep getting caught saying stupid things, and, what kind of person still uses a phrase like that anyway!

    It made the news here in N America. Just unbelievable that someone even uses a phrase like that.

  3. The MP is: Anne Marie Morris, a veteran tory MP.
    She has been suspended from the party.
     
  4. It's pure arogance, they think they can get away with it.

    Oh and before anyone reports the post the use of the N word is in context.

  6. Agree, and for so many reasons.
    Its offensive, should have died out years ago and I doubt this woman has ever seen any black person near her woodpile if she has even ever had one.
    These stupid people are driving decent people towards the labour party like free gifts!

  8. Why shouldn't they think that?
    Look how many got caught stealing from us, how many of them were prosecuted?

  9. Yes, but imagine if she'd said 'The elephant in the room... '? Everyone would immediately think Diane Abbott.

  15. It's nine minutes after the OP, has the politician resigned yet? And if not, then why not?
