Philip Davies, Tory MP for Shipley, said it was “outrageous” that Miss Mughal had defied the judge’s order.
A tribunal ruled she was not discriminated against, but she plans to take her fight to Europe, funded by taxpayers’ money.

There was a case here in the U.S. recently where a Muslim woman was involved in a civil case and the judge ordered that she could not wear her veil in the courtroom because the judge and jury needed to see her face to help determine whether she was telling the truth or not. The woman refused so the judge ruled summarily against her.
I agree with that btw.

Great so were not alone, but i wonder, what next what can and or should we do to resolve this tedious issue in the most appropriate way.
A flat out ban would cause riots and asking them to integrate and not always were the veil would cause uproar.
I feel this issue will not go away just yet, i feel some action will be taken against the veil in some form or another, just what our MP's will decide on i don't know. Pehaps banning them in classrooms, courts and other public offices may be a starting point.
Well not you but there are many people who say that they shouldn't be practising their traditions in another country, those are the people who believe they shouldn't.

ThePieMan, I wasn't saying they shouldn't wear it, what I am saying is that the defence of "but it's my religion" doesn't stand, as it has nothing to do with their religion.
If asked to remove it, remove it. It can be put back on again.
