MUSLIM women should not be allowed to cover their faces in public as there is no formal requirement in their religion, a Tory MP said yesterday.What is actually needed is the right for people and companies to refuse entry and to serve anyone wearing a full face covering without having the race industry charge into battle in full cry. You see I don't really care what people wear in public, but when someone is on someone else's property then their right to see just who they are dealing with has to top my right to wear what the hell I want.
Philip Hollobone was putting forward a Bill seeking to prohibit the wearing of face coverings, in particular the Muslim veil and balaclavas.
Presenting his Face Coverings (Prohibition) Bill, the Kettering MP expressed regret that his campaign had “come to this”.
Speaking during the bill’s second reading, he said: “But there’s growing concern amongst my constituents and across the country about the increasing number of people who are going about in public places covering their faces and this is causing alarm and distress to many people.”
During the debate, passport control officials were criticised for “waving through” a woman without asking her to remove her full-face veil.
It should also be the general policy of the government vis its departments and local government with regards to schools, libraries and other services. Same with banks, building societies, shops, right down to peoples homes.
It's a simple right to give, the right to refuse entry to your premises of anyone you cannot see the face of and it would soon resolve the problem of those who think their right to wear a face covering trumps all other rights, particularly as it isn't a religious requirement in any shape or form merely a cultural thing that is being used to advance the barbarism that is islam.
So Hollobone has it wrong, he's attempting to remove a right, rather than enhance them.
But that's typical of politicians...
