Fury at police in burkas: Plans blasted as ‘Mad’ and even criticised by Muslim leaders


Conservative MP, Philip Hollobone, said: “This is the final proof that the world has gone mad. It’s completely unacceptable.”

    Just wait a few years, Mr Hollobone. They’ll be mandatory one day if Britain doesn’t come to its senses.

  • DaninVan

    I agree. Cops hiding their faces is just wrong!

    I understand the rational for doing it but that doesn’t make it OK.

  • Dana Garcia

    Isn’t the job of police occasionally rather physical? Aren’t there physical standards of strength and speed?

    Let’s see some burqas run 100 yards and tackle a bad guy in a reasonable time.

      That was true prior to affirmative action, but believe me it long ceased to be the case in Canada and likely most of the West.

      • Dana Garcia

        Right, having standards is so 20th century, not to mention white.

        A few years ago, I saw a black man in a police uniform. He was considerably shorter than me (5’5″) and I was about to compliment him on his authentic costume, since it was Halloween morning. But then I noticed his service revolver was the real thing, so I stopped just in time.

      How do you know when you’ve stopped being a western country?

    Sucks when your crazy idea is crticized by the very people whose ass you’re trying to kiss.

    “…Even Criticised By Muslim Leaders”

    I think they’re opposed to the idea of muslima officers period, or any female in a position of official authority over them for that matter, burka or not.
