Boris Johnson burka comments - latest: Former foreign secretary ordered to apologise for 'Islamophobic' remarks amid calls for Tories to remove whip


Boris Johnson is facing mounting calls to apologise for his comments about Muslim women who wear the niqab.
The former foreign secretary said wearers of the weir 'look like letterboxes' and resemble 'a bank robber', adding that the garment was "absolutely ridiculous".
He faced an angry backlash, with opposition MPs accusing him of Islamophobia.
Theresa May and Brandon Lewis, the Tory chairman, have both called on him to apologise but he has so far refused to do so.
Conservative peer Lord Sheikh, the former of the Conservative Muslim Forum, called for the party to take "severe action" and remove the whip from Mr Johnson.
