Former UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson is refusing to apologize despite pressure from Britain’s political class — including Prime Minister Theresa May — after he said Muslim women who wear the burqa look like “bank robbers” and “letter boxes.”

The Conservative Party MP made the remarks in a column for The Daily Telegraph, in which he pushed back against Denmark’s recent ban on the full body and face covering, saying that while he thought that the clothing looked “ridiculous,” he didn’t think a ban was an appropriate measure.
