Boris Johnson facing party probe over burqa remarks

Boris Johnson under fire for ‘hate’ burqa comments

"He's completely entitled to say it, and there's nothing to apologize for", said Rees-Mogg, who - like Johnson and Farage - favors a hard and fast Brexit. For, if they do remain in thrall to Mr Johnson and his blunderbus approach, the Tory party will have even less public credibility in the future.

If the independent panel finds him culpable, Johnson faces suspension of his membership or expulsion from the party.

"With everything else going on in London to be diverting resources into an even cursory investigation into an article is weird", Mr Burns said according to The Telegraph.

Google Pixel 3 XL Clearly White leaks in new unboxing video
What's more surprising is that Google is also including a pair of wired USB Type-C headphones that feature a Pixel Buds design. The Android 9 Pie release is the proof in the proverbial pudding that Android as an operating system has hit its stride.

A watchdog which advises former ministers on taking new jobs ruled that Johnson broke ministerial rules by taking up his weekly column at the Telegraph without consulting it first. 'It was the wrong language to use. On those that wear the burka he appeared to draw comparisons with a female student who turned up to school "looking like a bank robber" - adding they should be asked to remove their face covering. He said he opposed banning burqas and other face-covering garments worn by some Muslim women, but referred to a woman wearing the attire as "looking like a bank robber".

Johnson, who leaped back into contention to replace Theresa May as prime minister after resigning his post in protest against the government's Brexit plan, made the controversial comments in a newspaper column on Monday. "It is ridiculous that these views are being attacked".

Furthermore, given the responses from other MPs, specifically Ms Dorries, and the broader concerns that have been raised by the Muslim Council of Britain amongst others, we believe that there must now be an independent inquiry into Islamophobia in the Party to tackle this issue once and for all.

Johnson has so far refused requests to apologise for the comments.

Scotland Yard chief Cressida Dick said the comments did not amount to a hate crime and police have not received any criminal complaint against Mr Johnson.

According to the BBC, Johnson's supporters defended his remarks, saying that he was simply sticking up for "liberal values". Half of the biggest names in the business in this country are in prison now.
