Pro-Brexit Conservative MP Boris Johnson stands by his statements made regarding the burka, he claims that it makes women look like “letterboxes” & “bank robbers”.
Sky News attempted to smear the former Mayor of London by polling whether or not it is racist to compare women wearing burkas to “letterboxes” and “bank robbers”, 60% said no and 33% said yes.
Nick Ferrari quizzed Boris Johnson regarding his comments made about the burkha on LBC today, Mr. Johnson claimed: “I received, having written that piece, overwhelming support not just from Muslims but above all from Muslim women who agreed with me.”
Boris Johnson was also asked whether or not he would make the same claims again, he replied: “Yes of course I would.”
Mr. Johnson was unequivocal in his disdain for a PC-style of politics, blasting: “People say ‘oh politicians should be careful what they say and they should watch their words’ all this sort of that mumbo jumbo. I don’t agree, I don’t agree, I really don’t.”
The former-Foreign Secretary also spoke burkas’s impact on Muslim women: “I don’t agree with women being cajoled to wear clothing that obscures their faces.”
The LBC presenter also quizzed Boris whether or not he was worried about any offending anyone, Johnson replied: “I offend people by saying Britain should leave the European Union” he went on to say “somebody has to speak up” for Muslim women being repressed by the involuntary wearing of the full-face veil.
It is extremely refreshing to see a high-profile elected representative refusing to back down to the politically correct army of the offended.
