Paperback Rioter can exclusively reveal how Muslim women in France are going to get round the ban on the niqab:
The women’s groups I spoke to said it was an acceptable compromise, which cover their faces while also showing respect for “Western values”.
Critics of the niqab both in France and also in Britain are attacking the outfit.
Tory right-winger Philip Hollowhead MP thundered, “For women to wear this is intolerable. You can’t see their faces. For all we know they might be terrorists. It’s a great symbol of repression. We are a tolerant country, but if one of my constituents visited me with one of these outfits on, I would refuse to see them.”
Hollowhead has already tabled a Parliamentary motion to get the outfits banned in public spaces.
Watch this space to see how the French Parliament will react to this extraordinary development.
