The Taunton Deane MP Jeremy Browne says we need a debate on whether young Muslim women and girls should be banned from wearing a veil or Niqab in public. Claire Manning has been to Plymouth to assess reaction to the proposal.
Poor Sarah Wollaston's twitter feed has become a total car crash of bigotry, Islamophobia, historical ignorance and exceptionalism.
Sarah Wollaston, how about asking a woman who wears niqab what she thinks about her freedom? Or does her opinion does not matter?
Feel quite uncomfortable about Sarah Wollaston's comments about the #niqab today.
feminists should be allowed to say that they find the #niqab deeply offensive without being accused of being bigoted or islamophobic,
The niqab should be banned within schools & colleges; how on earth do they promote equality when they collude with making women invisible?
The niqab won't be banned in the UK because too many politicians will hide behind freedom; hiding women away is a perversion of freedom
The Totnes MP Sarah Wollaston says Islamic veils are an 'intolerable subjugation of women which should not be allowed to masquerade as freedom.'
Sarah Wollaston MP (Con, Totnes, Brixham and South Hams) says the niqab (a full-face Islamic veil) should be banned in schools and colleges. A Birmingham college last week reversed a decision to ban the garment on security grounds. Read more about that decision here.
