The Home Office said yesterday: "It is not for government to say what people can and cannot wear. Such a proscriptive approach would be out of keeping with our nation's longstanding record of tolerance. Accordingly we do not support a ban on wearing the burka."

So would you be saying the exact same thing if the British Government banned the wearing of the Burka at work, or a Student who attends school from wearing a bracelet?
No you would not be. There would be an uproar if this happened, which has happened before, if I remember correctly.
You cannot have one set of rules for one religion without a universal rule for all religions.
If Christians are banned from wearing crosses, what next Catholics banned from wearing crucifixes?
If this ban is upheld, then there should be complete ban on all religions. From wearing anything which shows their faith or religion.

If it's a serious concern to health and safety, it should be removed in the workplace. I'm fairly certain if you're working alone operating a drill press or some form of machinery having your cross displayed is of little importance to the job at hand.
I don't care what faith you have and even less so while I'm trying to work.

I've grown extremely tired of these religious quacks
