UK PM May scolds Johnson for burqa remark after outcry

UK PM May scolds Johnson for burqa remark after outcry

Ruth Davidson is among the senior Consersvatives who have said Mr Johnson should apologise for his "gratuitously offensive" comments on the burka.

Boris who said women in burkas looked like "letterboxes" and "bank robbers" has refused to apologise and has said it is an attack on his Free Speech.

Dominic Grieve has said he'll quit the Conservative party if Boris Johnson becomes leader.

The repercussions could exasperate the party's growing civil war, where the debate over Johnson's comments has developed into a proxy war between Brexiteers and Remainers in the parliamentary party.

The party is understood to have received a number of complaints after Johnson likened Muslim women who choose to wear veils to "bank robbers" and "letter boxes" in a newspaper column earlier this week.

Under Conservative party rules, MPs must adhere to "minimum standards of behaviour" under the code of conduct and "lead by example to encourage and foster respect and tolerance".

The resignation solidified Johnson's position as a leader of the pro-Brexit wing of the Conservative Party, which is deeply divided over its attitude to the EU.

Armeena Khan on Wednesday called out former London mayor, Boris Johnson, on his derogatory remarks about women who opt for "full-faced veils".

"We must not fall into the trap of shutting down the debate on hard issues", a source close to Johnson told reporters.

The panel will consider whether Johnson should be disciplined following a deluge of complaints against him. By a narrow margin of 48 per cent to 45 per cent they thought he did not need to say sorry for his comments.

The defender featured against Rangers in the Europa League last week, and having made such an impression, the Gers boss wasted no time in securing his services on a four-year contract.

Jacob Rees-Mogg, a Conservative member of Parliament, however, told Nigel Farage on his radio show on Thursday May was wrong.

In a Sunday column for The Telegraph declaring that the burqa should not be banned in the United Kingdom, Johnson made remarks about the controversial clothing that some people considered a dog-whistle for Islamophobia.

Johnson was called upon to apologize but declined, according to his employers.

In a letter to The Times, Taj Hargey of the Oxford Islamic Congregation said there was "no Koranic legitimacy" for the burka, which he said had been used as part of a "gateway theology for religious extremism and militant Islam".
