Sorry for the tabloid style headline, but I don't know how you would explain Patrick Mercer's outburst in a polite way.
If you don't already know, Patrick mercer, who was Conservative "Homeland Security" person on the Tory front bench has been forced to resign after stating that calling someone a "black bastard" was normal language in the Army.
Read the full BBC report which goes in to all the gory details.
In mitigation to the Conservative Party, at least he was asked immediately to resign his position from the Tory front bench, but equally, it is disturbing that senior Tories can still think this way and perhaps shows that changing the Conservative Party is a lot more problematic that changing the party logo.
I wonder what language we should all use towards Mr Mercer from now on ? "Evil Tory git" ?
