I AM no longer a fan of Boris Johnson for Prime Minister, however, regarding his remarks about women wearing the burka looking to him like "letter-boxes" and "bank robbers", he is quite right not to apologise for exercising his right to free speech.

Thus, I further urge the politically correct to get a grip and make an effort to distinguish between actual hate speech and free speech before clogging media outlets with their blind and ill-considered reactive nonsense.

SHOULD we take any advice on dress code from someone who has demonstrated over the years an inability to keep his shirt tail tucked into his trousers?
