Muslim claptrap

Very funny Boris
Or was it serious?
You will be aware of the John Cleese sketch in Fawlty Towers “Don’t mention the war”.

But whereas the Cleese interpretation was obviously comic, your take on likening veiled Muslim women wearing burkas to letter boxes and bank robbers wasn’t a rib tickler.


Boris, this is your problem.
You act as a comic.
Not a statesman.

Now 70, I'm getting back into website development and brand protection, as well as showcasing the delightful artistic talents of my beautiful wife Lynne. My projection will encompass a lifetime of database marketing, as well as the Christian democratic socialist ideals of my wife and I.
