Heil, Burka!

The burka is back in the news, this time because the French government is considering legislation banning it from the country. The opinion of the French president is that it is oppressive, and represents a legal and security risk in a society where it is not required.


Muslim women, on the other hand, argue that the French government is seeking to be the oppressor by preventing them from practicing their preferred religion.




And in news from across the channel, the British government is considering legislation REQUIRING the burka, at least in the case of the Royal Family!

I try to be tolerant, I really do, but I fall short with this kind of foolishness.

(What about Prince Charles? As a good Canadian lassie I thought he was awfully cute in his youth.)

You had me going there for a second with Princess Anne!
There was talk of outlawing the burka here, too, but it quickly dissipated into the foolishness that it is, or was.

Not sure about a burka for poor old Margaret Rose. I think a shroud's more appropriate - she died over 7 years ago!

Perhaps for HRH Harry - he certainly needs something to cover his modesty.

See what I mean?
