Your word against mine then

Reader comment on item: The "Islamic Fashion Festival" Goes to Milan
in response to reader comment: No they are not

I am often in London and when we were there we observed this.. Yes numerous indeed only given the percentage but hardly the point. There were even a few beggar women in niquab in the streets ( in Edgeware road mainly) . You are saying that I am lying and not" factual"?? I am sure there are more witnesses to all these. There were certainly many taxi drivers with various stories and on the whole they all known for knowing London best.

It is indeed a fact that the Burkha, Hijab niquab etc are allowed to be worn in the UK , unlike here as banned because here we like to see people's faces. Part of our culture which is thankfully accepted . No freedom here to cover ones face. Balaclava's are illegal in public and helmets must be taken off in stores and banks etc. I find this very reasonable myself.

Submitting....
