Is this the reason Theresa May has been quiet about Donald Trump’s apparent support of white supremacists, racists, Nazis and anti-Semites?

Already, the Tories have welcomed two disgraced councillors back into their ranks:

Robert Davies, a Conservative Councillor in Sterling, was suspended from the party just weeks after being elected in May after large number of offensive, racist and derogatory tweets were uncovered by the Stirling Observer and the Scottish Catholic Observer.

And Alistair Majury was suspended at the same time for posting offensive remarks about Catholics.

A spokeperson for the party is reported to have said: “Having served a suspension, both councillors have been readmitted to the party after offering unreserved apologies for any offence caused. It has been made abundantly clear that behaviour like this will not be tolerated in future.”

But there’s so much of it!

Evolve Politics has published a list of recent stories involving Tory racism.

And now Theresa May is considering readmitting Anne Marie Morris, the Tory MP for Newton Abbot who was suspended for using the phrase “N*gg*r in a woodpile” to describe the possibility of no deal being reached over Brexit, during a seminar at the East India Club in London:

Like the others, Ms Morris has apologised “unreservedly” for her comment.

So she’ll probably be readmitted to the Tory ranks at the earliest opportunity.

Should she not have been dismissed from the party altogether?

And what does it say about the Tories, when they fill their ranks with racists?

Is former Thatcher and Major advisor Derek Laud right to say – as quoted by Evolve Politics – that the Tories are “essentially racist”?
