Veiled Threat Banned

With the news that the European Court has upheld the French 'full veil ban', one has to ask how long before other European nations adopt the same bans .... I don't mean the UK, we are incapable of doing anything, no I mean the southern, and central European member states (or even the Dutch), who are not so in thrall to Political Correctness?

No matter how 'liberal' some one is, I defy anyone who is not a Muslim, to not feel intensely uncomfortable in the company of someone who adopts this backward dress style. It's an intensely obvious rejection of the society that these Muslims have chosen to live in, and feels threatening to us .... its also a total rejection of the idea that men and women are equal, and in fact, of any tolerant integration.

"We're a tolerant and mutually respectful society."
Damian Green, Immigration Minister.

I for one would walk out of any shop or public body that employed staff dressed like that, never to transact with them again. I don't care what others think on this matter, but I know that I am not alone in this intense dislike of this aggressive proclamation of difference. Many others feel the same, even though they rarely say anything outside of their friends, such is the stranglehold that PC has on open speech.

I might add that it also makes something of a mockery of our 'tolerant and mutually respectful society', that Christians wearing a small cross, can be banned from many public spaces or employment, while this far more aggressive statement of 'faith' is permitted without any public condemnation by our leaders.


  1. I agree, the argument for the burqa is purely academic; don't tell people what they can and cannot wear, whereas, in practice it's special-pleading, anti-social behaviour.

    1. There are many things that one could do in a free society, but that we choose not to out of respect for others and for oneself. Multiply that by ten when moving to, or just visiting another culture.

    2. The adage was "When in Rome, do as the Romans do" .... sadly, its now, 'When In Rome, carry on like a barbarian'.
