Boris Johnson has once again found himself under fire due to comments he made likening women who wear Burqas and Niqabs in appearance to a letterbox.

The comments have been met with disapproval across the board with members of both main Parties, including the PM, demanding Johnson publicly apologise.

We at the Herald went out into the community and asked women choosing to wear the Burqa to give us their thoughts on the Uxbridge and Ruslip MP’s analogy.

Tahira of Middleton said “The man resembles a tumble weed that has been glued to hippopotamus’s flaccid penis.”

Rameen of Norden “He’s the human equivalent of an over-weight mop.”

Sadia of Heywood said “Boris Johnson looks like a giant fleshy slug on which a cat has vomited a hair ball.”

Kalima of Whitworth said “I wish that bloated gob shite would put on a burqa.”

Since the former Etonian prat is well known for his distinctive use of out-dated and peculiar phrases, this writer has a sincere caution;

I think it was utterly stupefying that a corny-faced addle pate such as Mr Johnson should pass remark on any other fellow’s semblance. The gundiguts shabaroon should hold his tongue lest he be pricked by a similarly proficient rhetorician’s hectoring.
