Times journalist tweeted that the Burka was disrespectful to deaf people...it didn't end well

Iain Martin, a Times columnist, took to Twitter to defend to Boris Johnson’s recent comments about the Burka. The reactions to his tweet didn’t go well. He battled on replying to his detractors for while, but eventually gave up, as it was relentless.

Here is a selection of the reactions to it.

Since you’re here …

It may worry you that most of our press is owned by a handful of offshore billionaires. News is increasingly biased, corrupt, or agenda driven.

More worrying is the staggering decline in independent, investigative journalism. It costs a lot to produce, so many publications facing an uncertain future can no longer afford to fund it.

With nobody to hold the rich and powerful to account, or report on the issues that don't fit with their 'narrative', your help is needed.

You can help support free, independent journalism for as little as 50p. Every penny we collect from donations supports vital investigative and independent journalism.
