"Banning the burka is un-British"

Following overwhelming votes in the Belgian and French parliaments to ban the wearing of the burka in public, Philip Hollobone, Tory MP for Kettering, introduced the Face Coverings (Regulation) Bill, which would regulate the use of certain facial coverings, including the burka, in public. ( Mr. Hollobone was found to be the thriftiest MP when troughers from all Parties were revealed during the recent expenses scandal. He also has anti-EU views and has refused to meet constituents who insist on wearing the face veil.)

However, Damian Green, Tory MP for Ashford, and the Immigration Minister, has turned down Mr. Hollobone's proposal -which is echoed by the majority of people in Britain - saying that it would be 'undesirable' for Parliament to try to pass such a law, which would be at odds with the UK's 'tolerant and mutually respectful society', and that it would be "rather un-British".

Well, Mr. Green, consider this:

It's rather Un-British to protest against our returning troops
It's rather Un-British to s**t in a hole in the ground and wipe your backside with your hand.
It's rather Un-British to call for the murder of anyone who happens to disagree with your religious beliefs.
It's rather Un-British to practise female genital mutilation (yes, it does happen here).
It's rather Un-British for gangs to target children of other ethnicities for sexual grooming and prostitution.
It's rather Un-British to practise marriage to young children (citing your Holy Book).
It's rather Un-British to reduce women to the level of domestic slaves seen only as your property.
It's rather un-British to flout UK animal slaughter law (halal).

Perhaps Mr. Green could reconsider his stance? Or have we simply exchanged one set of limp-wristed, ardent multiculturalists for another? For heaven's sake Mr. Cameron, have a word with your Immigration Minister, grow a backbone and start standing up for the people of Britain; that's what your voters were hoping for. It isn't only the disdained white people of this country who want a ban, there are also Sikhs, Hindus and yes, many muslims who don't want Wahabi-inspired, pro-Sharia type clothing and masks being flaunted on our streets and public places. It's intimidating, and dangerous too; highwaymen in the past wore masks. Robbers and terrorists do today. Ask yourselves why anyone feels the need to cover their face -no, the answer isn't 'religion'. It might be 'culture', but if so...that's rather un-British, don't you think?

This article in The Telegraph is worth reading.

"Banning the burka is un-British" No, not allowing people to cover their faces in public.

Telling a blind person to get off the bus, because of their guide dog is unbritish.

An increasing problemI understand.
