Amber Rudd, the work and pensions secretary, has been lambasted after referring to black people as "colored," on a day that saw two other UK government ministers manage to offend Muslims and the Irish. In an interview for BBC Radio 2, Rudd, who has since apologized for her "clumsy language," was giving her views on the issue of abuse and online trolling MPs receive online, when she made the offensive remark. "It definitely is worse if you're a woman. And it's worst of all if you're a colored woman. I know that Diane Abbott gets a huge amount of abuse."
