Shame of the n word.
Tory Emma Pentreath has had her face painted black and fellow Tory Philip Clarke has posted it on the Facebook site.
This was supposed to be a light hearted bit of fun and yes you could say it is, until you read the article with it.
Underneath her picture was the words:
This was meant to refer to the Tories "Black and white minstrel ball."
I will now quote from the Daily Mirror paper it says:
A caption reads: "Emmas career in politics lies in tatters after she follows Ann Winterton's lead and dresses as a "nigger minstrel" for the Tory black and white ball."
Ann Winterton was the Tory MP who cracked those terrible jokes about the Chinese cockle pickers in Morecambe bay.
She was fired for making racist jokes.
Yesterday Philip Clarke said:
"I have behaved very stupidly and bitterly regret it."
Black Labour MP Dawn Butler says:
"This shows the Tories haven't changed a bit."
Who, may I ask, even thinks of that disgusting and negative word these days?
It went out of our vocabulary years ago.
This just shows the true nature of the Tories and the way they have always been.
Do we want these kind of people running this country?
