Is it just me?
Watching the tv tonight and noting the 'shock-horror' over Boris Johnson's refusal to apologise for saying that women wearing the burka look like letter-boxes.
Why all the fuss? I'm sick of the media snatching odd, trivial comments and making mountains out of them! (Haven't we got more things to worry about than this?)
Yes, I suppose that comment was a bit rude. But a sacking offence? I think not.
In his defence, in his article in the The Daily Telegraph, Mr. Johnson did not support Denmark's new face-covering ban. And all this talk about him being 'Islamophobic' is completely groundless. So, he said something, publicly, that could be considered 'insensitive' by some.
But why are we all so quick nowadays to be offended by throw-away, silly, comments?
Get a life! (Or some more important news!)
Mortified - malicious gossip
Angry - dangerous dogs
Too cynical? - estate agents
