Burkini Ban : French Farce

by duncanr

the french motto ‘Liberté, égalité, fraternité‘ seems rather hollow given some French mayors have banned women from wearing the ‘burkini’ swimming costume on the beach

and while the french prime minister sees the burkini as ‘enslaving’ women – apparently because he thinks the decision to wear the burkini is forced on a woman by her male partner rather than her own choice, he sees nothing ironic in another set of men ordering her not to wear it

as Mitch Benn says on Twitter . . . The case that one should not dictate what women can & can’t wear is perhaps not best made by dictating what women can & can’t wearhttp://tinyurl.com/zhrqg3w

and as to the argument that . . .

outward signs of religious faith conflicts with french secular values, are we now going to see armed police forcing catholic nuns to remove their habits, sikh men their turbans, jews their kippot ?

I very much doubt it, and if that is the case then, like I said, so much for the vaunted french claim of ‘Liberté, égalité, fraternité

  1. Read all about it! Read all about it!

    News reaches us from our Brummagem correspondent concerning a frightening new escalation of anti-Caledonian crime in the city, known locally as Jockophobia,

    This latest trend involves a gang of Muslim women clad in bizarre wetsuits with daft scarves, roaming around the residential areas on the outskirts of Birmingham plotting jihadi-type crimes.

    In a recent incident an elderly bearded Scotsman was targetted, and later confirmed to our correspondent that a gang of women had distracted him with a plate of samosas before stealing the word ‘is’ from his recent blog comment.
