The Veil Controversy

Britain’s government has never been able to solve the problem of Muslim women wearing full-face veils (Niqab) since the controversy began, mainly because we are supposedly hamstrung by the Human Rights and Religious Freedom Laws from Brussels. The big question on everyone’s mind should now be: Why has France been able to pass this law and not Great Britain?

French Muslim Reaction To Ban

It has been revealed today that the European Court of Human Rights (CHR) has upheld France’s right to impose a veil ban so our government can no longer use that as an excuse.

In the past we have had cases where Muslim’s charged with an offence have refused to lower their veil in a court of law because of their religion. The problem in one case was eventually solved by the defendant being taken to a private room and identified by another female, but the veil remained in place throughout the trial.

This sort of farce should not be allowed to continue, and Britain must follow France’s example and ban them in all public areas. The above mentioned case against the veil ban was brought by a 24-year-old French woman, who argued that the ban on wearing the veil in public violated her freedom of religion and expression. Her case was thrown out by the court.

France has about 5 million Muslims and the ban was most unpopular when brought in by Nicholas Sarkozy. But this recent court decision has clearly shown that Muslims can no longer rely on the CHR to get their way, and I must add, about time too!

It is way past time the ban was enforced here with a fine for wearing one in public and a ‘three strikes and you’re out’ rule that sends consistent offenders to jail for three months. The only other answer is: If you can’t live without the veil, move to a Muslim country!

This whole episode indicates that there is nothing to stop the Cameron government from imposing the same ban here in Britain. I do however fear that this will not happen, for the simple reason Cameron is going to need every vote he can get at the next election, and if he bans the veil he will surely lose all the Muslim votes.

I don’t know about you, but I am sick and tired of modern politicians who do not do what is right for the country and its people because they may lose a few votes. It is time they all stepped up to the wire and did what is right for the majority of our citizens, like stopping immigration, kicking out the undesirables, stamping on the benefit cheats and concentrate on getting everyone into work.

The Streets Of Britain

For far too long this country has suffered at the hands of politicians who are looking out for themselves and to hell with what the people want. If some of the actions they take go against the ‘Rules’ passed down from high and mighty Brussels then tell them to ‘go suck an egg’ (and I kept that polite).

This country needs more politicians with backbone like Margaret Thatcher. Does anyone for one minute think she would have allowed things to get into this state with European Laws? Not on yer life!

May the only veil you see be that of a bride!

    • Hi John and welcome.
      Thanks for taking the time to comment. I have to agree 100% with what you say, and I think many Conservative voters will feel the same. Although you have not said who you will vote for, for the sake of the country I hope it will not be Labour. I have to admit that I am tempted to vote for UKIP. No-one can tell what sort of government they would make, but to be honest, they can hardly be worse than the two main party’s.
      You can bet this will be a thorny issue for many UK voters in the coming year, and I just hope everyone makes the right decision. Whoever gets in will have to get us out from under the stifling cloak of the EU so that we can once again govern with our own justice system and sort out the immigrant problem. Otherwise we are doomed. Whatever happens, keep smiling!
      Best Regards,
      Roy.
