Bozos, Burkas and Farage

Matthew Steeples suggests Nigel Farage is wrong about Boris Johnson’s latest gaffe about burkas in Britain

 

On Wednesday morning, on Sky News, Nigel Farage was interviewed about what he thinks about Boris Johnson – a self-serving man who simply loves to stay in the headlines – comparing women in burkas to “bank robbers” and suggesting they “look like letter boxes.”

 

Farage argued that “Joe Public is not interested” in this story and went as far to suggest: “This is just for the Westminster bubble… Politics is way to PC… You have to accept that sometimes people will be offended.”

 

Clearly, Farage has misjudged the interest in Johnson’s clearly provocative comments. This may be the ‘Silly Season’ but wherever I go in the UK and whenever I am in a situation where there are burka wearers, people – of all backgrounds – have something to say. Some are of the opinion that we must be respectful of such whilst others are of the mind that the burka is nothing but inappropriate in a modern, Western society.

 

In such places as Iran and Saudi Arabia, females, foreign and local, are forced to conform to the dress codes of those countries. Many here in Britain consider such “medieval” and “backward” and I, for one (as much as I personally loathe the bozo Johnson), certainly don’t believe anyone should be silenced from sharing their views for or against a ban on the burka in Britain.

  1. Burkas are unacceptable!!!!!!!!!!! BAN THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BAN THEM NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!! BAN THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I want to see birds!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Uncover them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. I am Jewish but I think burka wearers have a perfect right to wear whatever they wish as it conforms to their religious standards.

  3. The picture says it all. They wear backward clothing yet they embrace modern technology. What would Allah have to say about their devotion to the “evils of technology”?

  4. It’s been said nuns look like “Penguins”…..!
    So these people look like “Letterboxes”….!
    So bloody WHAT…..?!!! A ludicrous storm in a teacup, particularly in light of what else is taking place around the world……

  5. It’s hard,y a secret that this is just pArt of Boris’ campaign to become Tory leader. He needs to appeal to the small group of (mostly) nasty old men that make up the Tory selectorste. Obviously, the man has no beliefs at all.
