Supporters of Boris Johnson believe his latest ploy to propel himself on to the front pages has revived his Tory leadership chances and given him another possible crack at Number 10.
Sir, – News of the Scottish Government’s rail development fund awards announced in St Andrews on Thursday strikes me as a classic case of the authorities pretending to do something with little intention of following through.
Sir, – I refer to the letter from Mr Joseph Miller as published in The Courier last week (August 8).
Sir, – Boris Johnson is no stranger to controversy and his words on the wearing of the burka, or more accurately the niqab, in this country will certainly have been chosen carefully.
As someone who has very little patience for idiocy — including, at times, my own — I often find myself banging my head off my desk, wailing “why??” at no one in particular.
Sir, – The debate over burkas and niqabs started by Boris Johnson’s recent comments is entirely missing the point.
A Tory former chief whip has backed Boris Johnson in the burka row, saying he had no need to apologise for making inflammatory comments about Muslim women.
A Dundee organisation that supports Muslim women has accused former foreign secretary Boris Johnson of "fuelling "Islamophobia".
Boris Johnson has caused outrage with a newspaper article comparing women in burkas to bank robbers.
Sir, - A number of correspondents (September 10) made various complaints about the SNP and the possibility of a second independence referendum.
