UPDATE: Tory spokesman: “We are aware of these reports. This kind of language is completely unacceptable and we are urgently investigating.”

UPDATE II: Anne Marie Morris: “The comment was totally unintentional. I apologise unreservedly for any offence caused.”

UPDATE III: Theresa May: “I think it is beholden on us all that we use appropriate language at all times.”

UPDATE IV: Labour’s Andrew Gwynne:

“Anne Marie Morris’ comments are outrageous and totally unacceptable. Theresa May once spoke about changing the Tories’ ‘Nasty Party’ tag. If she’s serious about that, she will admit it’s not enough for the Tories to ‘investigate’ and will apologise and act immediately. If that means withdrawing the whip, that’s what they should do.”

Quote of the Day

Trevor Kavanagh’s analysis of the Brexit process…

“Thanks to Mrs May and her useless Chancellor Phil Hammond, this will not come without pain. But we escape with imagination and true British grit or we will be boiled alive.

It means on this centenary Remembrance of our struggle against tyranny, we risk ceding non-military victory in Europe to the undemocratic forces of an unaccountable totalitarian regime.”
