Boris Johnson quit? Burka ban comments ruled not criminal

But the survey for the Sky News found people are split as to whether the former foreign secretary should apologise for his remarks - 45 per cent think he should do so, 48 per cent think he should not.

Boris Johnson made the comments in his column in the Daily Telegraph as he talked about the introduction of a burka ban in Denmark.

Speaking on the BBC's World At One, the MP for Beaconsfield said: "If he was to become leader of the party, I won't be in it".

The new Popular Film category is bound to be controversial, even before concrete details about it have been confirmed. It is unclear, however, whether the change will come into effect in time for the next Oscars ceremony in February.

Baroness Warsi repeated her calls for an investigation into Islamophobia within the Conservative party in a piece in the Guardian, and noted there had been a 26% rise in hate crimes against Muslims previous year, according to figures from monitoring group Tell Mama.

Among criticisms from Muslim groups, Johnson has also received words from fellow politicians including former Attorney General Dominic Grieve, Theresa May, Brandon Lewis and Ruth Davidson.

And as the row rages on for the fourth day, a string of Tory Remainers have publicly stuck the knife into Mr Johnson - demanding he apologise.

Eurosceptic Jacob Rees-Mogg said there was no need for Mr Johnson to apologise and said Mrs May was "clearly wrong" to ask a backbencher to apologise. That step would mean he could not represent the party, and would be barred from standing in a future leadership contest.

She said: 'It's this thing about not taking things seriously, you know, like the old Boris of old: "Oh sorry, I've just s***ged your wife, didn't realise", that kind of thing'. She felt that she had been sexually assaulted. If a woman wants to wear a burqa it is her right to do so.

Spider-Man: Far From Home Additional Cast Members Revealed
How all of this plays out onscreen is still anyone's guess, but if you dig Jackson as Fury, get ready to see a lot more of him. Spider-Man's sequel also confirms that Peter Parker did not die as shown towards the end of Infinity War .

In his controversial column, Johnson said he opposed a ban on face-covering veils, but added it was "absolutely ridiculous that people should choose to go around looking like letter-boxes".
