    I'm uneasy about curtailing random civil liberties simply due to the abject failure of state multiculturalism. To start telling people how to dress runs contrary to our values. Would prefer, first, to bar/commence repatriation for those who don't pass new (retrospective) citizenship tests (speaking English, swearing allegiance to Queen and country, etc) :yy:

    Couldn't they just shave the facial hair off at least? Or do they not have razors in Iraq?

    The number of robberies being committed with the use of a burka is ridiculously low. It would not make sense to ban an item of religious clothing for such rare instances.

    There's a reason robberies committed using a burka is so low, it's simply not practical.

    Unfortunately, people wearing Burkas are accepted and no one is going to challenge them. Someone wearing a balaclava would get arrested or at least be asked to take it off the first time they encounter police.

    Lol gonna laugh if it becomes a growing trend. Then again, I don't think it's worth subjecting yourself to wearing that thing.

    Don't forget rape, arson, extortion, paedophillia and just general crimes against humanity.

    I doubt it will become a trend, if you're pulling off a robbery you're going to want to be quick and a big baggy dress isn't going to help. Even if it does become a trend I doubt they will ban it in public places, even balaclavas can still be worn in public.

    Not really the point but anyway. Can't wait to see what post-Brexit Britain in like.

    NHS long gone, tuition fees at £20,000 per annum/uncapped, civil unrest been and gone.
