    "Theresa May demands Boris Johnson apologise for Islamophobic burqa 'letter box' comments"

    Tell the bloody woman to lighten up BoJo - I've often made the 'letter box' simile myself, and that there's someone inside looking out? lol

    May opined, with enough political correctness to make you puke, "What’s important is do we believe people should have the right to practise their religion and, in the case of women and the burqa and niqab, to choose how they dress. I believe women should be able to choose how they dress.”

    It has nothing to do with 'religious dress choice', stupido, it's a ****ing statement, and it states this: 'I'm a Muslim and I'm not gonna let you forget it!!' FFS I give up, I really do!

    Yeah, walking letterboxes? :mrgreen: I can't believe all the **** we're having to put up with these days. 'Salisbury' has gone very quiet again; only a couple of weeks ago plod were saying they'll be finding lots more of this novichok all over the place, but they haven't found any more yet - in fact I think they've all packed up and gone home.

    Deliberately insulting some of their constituents and implicitly supporting similar abuse of them by others. It’s great head-line grabbing controversy for a “journalist” out to make the most money for their publication but not good for a professional politicians and MP who should be looking for mutually respectful and constructive debate.

    He wouldn’t dream of insulting Christians in the same way and if a senior Labour MP had written a similar insult against Jewish religious dress in the current climate, they’d be strung up.

    If they choose to walk around dressed up in this ridiculous garb then they deserve to be insulted. One day, when you find you've become outnumbered by them compared to how you're dressed, you might begin to feel affronted, and see it as the insult to our culture that it is. But of course, by then it'll be too late to do anything about it because you'll be a minority.

    Nobody deserves to be insulted. Insults achieve nothing but building contempt, hatred and that can ultimately lead to abuse and violence. There is no benefit, nothing positive to come from that.

    I don’t like burkas and veils and I’d much prefer if nobody wore them, certainly if nobody felt forced or obliged to wear them but I don’t see that as any reason or justification to insult those people. There are plenty of things I think Johnson does and says that is wrong too, but I’m not flinging unconstructive insults or abuse at him either.

    They insult us so we insult them back - it's no big deal? [​IMG] They should integrate, but they not only refuse to, they determinedly and provocatively go out of their way to prove they're different to us.

    Boris has some support - from an Imam of all people?

    "A leading imam has defended Boris Johnson over his controversial comments on burkas amid calls for the former foreign secretary to be kicked out of the Tory party. Mr Johnson is under increasing pressure to apologise after comparing women who wear burkas to letter boxes."

    BoJo won't be apologising to anyone?

    I think as I know others have suggested that this is just Boris going for his hopeful take over of the leadership of the Tories - a Tories moving to the hard right with a hard Brexit.

    There is now a move to get him to face a disciplinary inquiry.

    https://www.theguardian.com/politic...boris-johnson-burqa-row-says-sajjad-karim-mep

    Interestingly in that one MP suggests
    (link as above)

    again believing that the intent is to appeal to those inclined to the extreme right.

    I know that if the hard Brexit and extreme right come into being, I will be up front working for Scottish Independence and Resistance of the English extreme right which Johnson is appealing to.

    where do you get this from? Hard right...?
    Most political parties are plugging the be-all-to-everyone agenda i.e. they're hovering in the centre ground and thus actually achieving bugger all. Any "hard" right or "hard" left political party will be consigned to the scrapheap; it will be unelectable. The narrative is to call them "hard" in order to scare the voters away so don't get sucked in by polemics. This is just the politics of politics.
