A poll by YouGov found that the British public 'overwhelmingly support banning the Islamic burka'.

It's time for the UK government to give the people what they want and ban the burka.

Well they let us vote on Brexit I suppose. Logical to let us vote. Interesting why this is the case. A bit extreme to out-right ban a head-garment.

The majority of the British public are complete morons.

What valid reason is there for banning freedom of expression in this way? All this is just down to reactionary scaremongering, rather than any credible evidence of a real problem.

The burka isn’t Islamic, it isn’t mentioned in the Quran. If there was a ban, it would be on anything that covers your face and wouldn’t exactly be called a “burqa ban”

I don’t think the burka has anything to do with “the majority of the British public”. Democracy does not necessarily mean we should be ruled by an angry mob.

I’d say allow it,but(i repeat but) make it so that they have to obliged to take it off/uncover their face in certain occasions like:
-When using a vehicle
-When confronted by police or in courts of law
-When doing public transactions eg. Shopping or using a bank
-In the classroom;whether teaching or being taught
-When in front of medical authority
And probably many
It is pointless to ban it just because of discomfort by others,but they should be prepared to cooperate with british society.

I respect free choice, but covering the face is not compatible for people to engage in society, and should be banned - Denmark, Bayern, and Austria are addressing problems of ostracising themselves from others, especially for identification or in classrooms.

Many muslims oppose the burqa against a Saudi-brand conservative model, e.g. in Morocco their sale is illegal, where terrorists used burqas to hide bombs and weapons, many religious scholars in Egypt. And although I disagree to violence and Islamophobia, in the current climate is a security risk for the women themselves.

And indeed on the topic of free choice, a person's freedom ends where others' freedom to safety (due to earlier highlighted concerns), and being able to talk to someone face to face ends, is endangered. And often there is no free choice involved in this decision, as they would face very bad consequences if they decided to remove them (only for some, yet defend the burqa in fear of repercussions).

Britain wants to be accepted but this is against proper social engagement, identification by police and authorities, and against their welfare, which seems to me, valid reason to ban the burqa in this country

Probably the stupidest thing to ban because anyone who wears the face covering will definitely take it off for ID purposes. other than that don't see why they even care what someone wears

That's great. The faster we stop prostrating ourselves before this oppressive, outdated, backwards culture, the better. There is no reason why a Western country should bow to religious delusions in the 21st century.

Should also ban the burqa while we're at it.
