British public overwhelmingly support banning the Islamic burqa by two to one

The British public want to ban Muslim women from wearing the Islamic veil or burqa by an overwhelming margin of more than two-to-one, a poll has found.

Research by YouGov found a huge proportion of the public had no qualms about telling women what to wear, with 57 per cent in favour of a ban and just 25 per cent against.

18-24 year olds were the only age group to oppose a ban; all others were in favour, with the oldest 65+ group backing the prohibition by a startling 78 per cent to 12. All major political parties also had a plurality of voters in favour of a ban.

  • Perhaps Europeans of all nations should have thought about these issues before hand.

    • The man on the street had this foisted on him, the political class are the ones who should be in the prisoner’s dock.

    You need to ban muslims, not burkas.

    Lesson over morons.

        Why hump a scythe around when you can wear a corset full of ball bearings and stuff?.

    Is the US education system adopting the mahometan attitude that girls are expected to cover up more than they would at home, and boys are expected to pester them?
