Here is a man who said in 2010 that he wants to ban the Burka.
As a Roman Catholic, he should be familiar with images of the Virgin Mary or nuns – almost inevitably wearing a version of the veil.
In a debate then he was challenged by Sir Christopher Frayling who said, “If someone wants to wear the badge of their faith, why shouldn’t they? It’s not harming anyone.”
The point is really that this is becoming a fairly defiant statement.
In Turkey it is a political issue and the political faction can be determined by the way the scarf is tied.
I would like to hear his views now. He was particularly good responding to questions about a dual funded private/public NHS though UKIP is committed this election to a fully free and publicly funded NHS, albeit also committed to trimming the bureaucrats and cutting back PFI contracts.
I have promised a video on the variations of Islamic veiling… somehow the video list seems to get bigger and bigger.
I am scribbling this at 2am. there never seems to be enough time!
