Is likening a burka to a paper bag worse than comparing it to a bin bag – should a Metropolitan Police Authority member be worried?

An obscure Conservative MP, Philip Hollobone, has been referred to the Police follwoing his remarks that a burka¬†¬†was ‘the religious equivalent of going around with a paper bag over your head with two holes for the eyes’ for allegedly inciting religious hatred.

Now there is a member of the Metropolitan Police Authority, who as it happens is also an elected member of the London Assembly, that customarily uses the term “bin bag” instead – I wonder whether they are worried that they might now be investigated?

  1. I’d prefer live coverage of the sentence and execution, Emu and a fair few others likewise.

    Ant & Dec could host the grisly entertainment and be subject to a similar process.

    We need a rest from Reality TV.

    Racists are unlikely to cease their provocations, but context and perspective are necessary in pursuit of them.
