UK politician Boris Johnson draws ire with burqa comments

The party's chairman, Brandon Lewis, has received at least one written complaint about Johnson's conduct from the Muslim peer Lord Sheikh and has to decide whether to launch disciplinary proceedings against Johnson or not.

Ruth Davidson is among the senior Consersvatives who have said Mr Johnson should apologise for his "gratuitously offensive" comments on the burka.

British Prime Minister Theresa May and other senior Conservatives told former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson to say sorry Tuesday for a newspaper column in which he wrote that burqa-wearing women looked like "letter boxes" and bank robbers.

The party's code of conduct says that MPs and other holders of public office should "not use their position to bully, abuse, victimise, harass or unlawfully discriminate against others" and "foster respect and tolerance".

There was no immediate sign that Johnson planned to back down. "I will defend the basic principle which is the right to choose", added the Janaan actor.

"It is ridiculous that these views are being attacked - we must not fall into the trap of shutting down the debate on hard issues", a source close to Johnson told reporters.

In an interview with Daily Telegraph, Johnson said full-face veils should not be banned in Denmark but mentioned he found it "absolutely ridiculous" that women choose to "go around looking like letter boxes".

"We have to call it out".

Johnson has been in direct communication with Bannon in recent months, according to media reports.

There is speculation that May will face a leadership challenge if faltering Brexit negotiations don't improve - and Johnson is likely to be a contender to replace her.
