Now obviously my own vested interests to remain anonymous in public are paramount, but since when did the state start deciding what people can wear?
I await the howls from the usual suspects that "a man dressed in a burqa could rob a bank". He still can even if the wearing of the burqa is banned, except the usual method of disguise is a pair of tights. Should we ban them too?
If Muslims want to wear burqas, so what? It does not adversly affect me in any way whatsoever. I know many Christian women who prefer not to get their tits out on the beach, are we to employ clothing inspectors next? When does this stop?
If a shop refuses to serve you wearing a crash helmet, balaclava, hoodie or Burqa, then shop elsewhere. Oh, and Parliament, get the fuck out of my wardrobe. It is my face, it belongs to me, I was born with it and what I do with it is my business, not yours. That includes not showing it to you on demand, just as I do not have to give you my fingerprints because you are curious what they look like.
