A Conservative MP who has had the party whip restored to her after she was suspended for using a racist expression has been branded "a disgrace" by a Labour shadow minister.
Newton Abbot's Anne Marie Morris was suspended from the party in July after it emerged she used a racist expression during a public discussion about Brexit [Warning: link contains offensive language].
Shadow Cabinet Office minister Jon Trickett said: "It's a disgrace that the so-called 'caring' Conservatives have welcomed back Anne Marie Morris, who made an appallingly racist comment.
"It appears the prime minister is so weak and desperate to avoid a Parliamentary Brexit defeat she is prepared to forgive and forget racism.
"Theresa May once branded the Conservatives the 'nasty party' and it is clear nothing has changed."
The MP has apologised for her "inappropriate and offensive" language during the public discussion.
She said she had "learned from the experience" and would seek to uphold the highest possible standards in public life.
