A poll was conduced by Sky Data which revealed that 59% of the British public support a complete ban on the burka in public places in the United Kingdom. 

 

Only 26% would not support this ban. 

There was another poll back in 2016 conducted by YouGov that showed 57% of the British public would like to see a ban on the burka and only 25% were not in favour. 

How can anyone deny that this reveals that the mainstream media narrative and the establishments political correctness is not supported by the public. Even mainstream polls show us that people in this country do not generally find Bojo’s comments racist and it goes further to reveal that Brits generally want a ban on the burka.

What did Boris Johnson say about the Burka?

Boris wrote a piece in the Daily Telegraph, he wrote; ‘If you tell me that the burka is oppressive, then I am with you. ‘If you say that it is weird and bullying to expect women to cover their faces, then I totally agree – and I would add that I can find no scriptural authority for the practice in the Koran.

‘I would go further and say that it is absolutely ridiculous that people should choose to go around looking like letter boxes.’

But he is seemingly against a total ban on the burkha claiming it would cause a clash of civilisations between the West and Islam. 

Boris Johnson’s comments have sparked nationwide debate around the burka and political correctness which can only be a good thing considering the likes of Austria, Denmark, Belgium and France have laws regarding bans on the burka. Who knows? Maybe all this controversy and charm from Boris could lead to the leadership challenge the Tory Party so desperately needs?
