UKIP Criticises Met’s ‘Chief of Thought Police’ for ‘Hate Crime’ Investigation Into BoJo Burqa Comments
UK Independence Party (UKIP) leader Gerard Batten has criticised London Metropolitan Police Commissioner Cressida Dick for having specialist officers look into whether comparing burqas to letterboxes is a ‘hate crime’.
The initial probing by the Met’s specialist hate crime officers came following comments made by Boris Johnson when he compared the appearance of women wearing the burqa to letterboxes and bank robbers, sparking preliminary investigations by the Conservative Party into whether the Brexit-supporting MP should be disciplined.
Speaking to the BBC’s Asian Network earlier this week, Dick said that “some people have clearly found it offensive” but added that officers had deemed that the former two-time Mayor of London “did not commit a criminal offence”.
Calling out the police’s obsession with investigating so-called ‘hate speech’, UKIP leader Gerard Batten drew similarities with the concept of ‘thought crime’ in George Orwell’s dystopian novel Nineteen Eighty-Four.
