Hypocrisy when it comes to burkas.

WHAT furore over comments made by Boris Johnson about the wearing of a burka.

Where was Councillor Rob Higgins when Emily Thornberry, then Labour Party shadow to Boris, said on BBC Question Time that she would not like her daughter or elderly mother being looked after by someone wearing a burka? Where was the BBC News at Ten when Stephen Fry said on Have I Got News For You, as a burka-clad figure was shown on screen, that he had just posted a letter in the slit? I didn't hear the Prime Minister telling Polly Toynbee that she should apologise after she wrote that the burka is a public tarring and feathering of female sexuality. Am I the only one who detects hypocrisy? BILL RICALTON, Longhorsley
