It is a battle, as we’ve seen this week, that is being lost.
Let’s be clear: Boris Johnson’s use of a word ‘letterboxes’ to report people wearing burkas was intensely ill-judged from a comparison politician, generally when those who wear them still humour infamous abuse on a streets.
It was another Boris gaffe that will count opposite him if he does lapse to frontline politics.

Quite what a Met were doing even meditative about creation this a rapist matter is over us.
There has been changed small discuss about a doubt Boris was indeed posing: what purpose burkas have in complicated multitude and either a Government should anathema them.
Instead we have handed over domestic discuss to amicable media mobs and a cheering competition.
That’s no good for any of us.
