The burka is demeaning to women and denies them their right to freedom of expression and to an individual identity. It is not worn out of choice but is a religious and cultural expectation forced upon women by Muslim men. The burka is not part of British culture and should be banned.
Those who insist upon the burka should go to live in a Muslim country. Members of Parliament have absolute privilege and can speak freely in the House of Commons without interference. It is a freedom which stretches back centuries and is part of our democracy. If an MP uses "unparliamentary language" he can be ordered to withdraw the remarks or told to leave the chamber by the Speaker.
A note to yellow streak Brown and his bunch of crooks, the police are not there to serve you, but us, as you should be doing as well! Not attempting to support minority, troublesome people who want to wear a garment that should have been banned from day one!
I hope when the Conservatives get in they will immediately stop all public funding to the Northamptonshire Rights and Equality Council. Islam is not, repeat not a race and this has been decided by the courts. Any police officer who arrests a person on the grounds of race when speaking about Islam should be arrested themselves and charged with treason as freedom of speech is a constitutional right so when they try to suppress it the commit treason.
