.I meant niquab, sorry... I think... so confusing,almost as bad, black tents only the eyes are uncovered.? Have you ever been to London lately?

I have and they are numerous. Everywhere you go....many working in the stores even wear chador with face uncovered though usually, well just about. Also many indeed in "just' abaya. Mostly very pleasant girls/women on the whole I notice but that is not the point though here. BTW, a taxi driver told us many Arab men "dump" "one" of their "wives" in expensive London flats and they return to ME (and their other wives?). The London wives call him to take them to a nightclubs all dolled up. They lie in the back of the cab so as not to be seen. He collects them later often drunk... he was disgusted at the hypocrisy. Sad state of affairs for these women though.

Submitting....
