I’m not a racist and I’m not an Islamophobe, but I think I agree for the first time with Boris Johnson.

I think that Muslim women that wear burkas look like letter-boxes.

I have no problem with Muslim women who want to wear burkas, but I think someone should tell them that they look very silly and slightly medieval.
