Britain must ban the veil in the courtroom says country’s most senior female judge

Women must not hide behind the veil in court says top judge after struggling to tell witness was lying because ‘she couldn’t see her eyes’

    Wearing the veil in a non-Sharia court is like flipping the bird at the judge, the court and any infidel in the vicinity. It is worthy of a charge of contempt of court.

    Quit yielding to the “I’m a victim” game. If the claimed fear is that pious Muslim men are ready to pounce on an uncovered female then identify and exclude the offensive Muslim males for that very reason. The situation really is as preposterous as it sounds: No Muslim men allowed precisely because they are Muslim, if any non-veiled women are present. Then apply the same reasoning to all public spaces in a country — the sidewalks, the streets, the cafes, etc — and the only remedy left is to either surrender or to exclude every last Muslim male. There is no escaping this choice. (It is also indistinguishable from the demands of IS/ISIS/ISIL.)

    Essentially, allowing the veil in public is a way of denying that the West has its own culture and appreciation of women as human beings.

    With a rash of bank robberies going on by individuals wearing the burqa it needs to be banned out in public places period.

    A sane, non-dhimmi judge in Britain — who knew?

      Shocking, isn’t it? Of course, a white male would’ve been considered a xenophobic, sexist, Islamophobic bigot! *sigh*

    It’s time for muslims to give reasonable accommodation to our needs as infidels, and stop wearing niqabs and burqas in public.

    At long last…reason is returning to the ‘mother of the free’. God bless her honour!

    ban muslims instead

    I wonder if it is not too late for madam judge to protest.
    The British acceptance of thousands of Muslim outrages and the allowance of the practice of sharia without any protests is the beginning of the end for the country that once “Ruled the waves”.

    It will not be long before all women in “Great Britain” will be burka bound.

    I sincerely hope I am wrong but I fear I am not.
