Letters: Mr Yasin should resign over Boris bash

Boris Johnson

Dear editor,

In response to your article: Borough MPs react as Boris Johnson wins Conservative Party leadership contest

Boris makes comments in support of women being treated equally and not bullied and our MP, Mohammad Yasin, calls it, “… racist, Islamophobic and homophobic comments…”. Is this part of Corbyn’s ‘kinder politics’?

“Cut out the personal abuse, … and let’s get on with bringing real values back into politics”.

I think that the Mr Yasin needs to apologise and resign at the first opportunity.

Yours sincerely,

Peter Davis
