      Live and let live and all that, but what the hell's it coming to when comedians are buying too much into all this P.C sfuff? I wouldn't mind betting that Adam and his mates here are more upset about this than the vast majority of Muslim women out there.
      Quite pathetic really.

      Dear God of all that is presumably Holy! this what's happening to what is classed as "comedy" these days? sanctimonious, smug PC agenda-led grown men(yes, and women)seemingly more interested in cultivating some image of themselves as socially conscious all 'round good eggs acquiescing to the mentally-conditioning thought police, rather than being honest and truthful one day it..funny?
      One believed Boris's comment to be of little or no particular significant consequence(except maybe to a small amount of Muslim women, (who could perhaps do themselves a favour and try getting out more!..with or without their burka's !) and yet, watching these three, one would think he had urinated on a copy of the Qur'an.
      The Sphincter -Ometer says it all... "Comedians" oh so frightened of saying anything that may remotely offend anyone, particularly it appears, anyone of Islamic inclinations!
      Hills says "religions should be open to ridicule, but you kind of have to be in the club". What?!! So if he had his way before very long all we're going to have is comedians talking about nothing but themselves, their bodily functions, irregular bowel movements etc etc...
      Lenny Bruce must be turning in his grave!! Excuse me Mr.Hills, but I'll make fun of Scientology any time I see fit thank you very much. May one respectfully request you stop trying to be all things to all snowflakes and simply try some good old laughter medicine!

      Since when have we not ridiculed religion and the stupid things it encourages. Will you ban The Life of Brian or Jerry Springer the Opera because Christians are offended and we are not in their club? By this logic atheists can't ridicule any religion because they're not in any club. Also the comparison to disability is just stupid: disability isn't a choice where as wearing an item of clothing is. If someone makes a choice to do something then they are open to ridicule.

    I think we should ban the Burka in public. There have been more than a few instances of criminals donning a burka to hide in plain sight.
    Also I will admit I don't like the burka, I find it genuinely terrifying.
    I was in Boots a number of years ago and turned round to see 4 persons wearing a burka blocking my path. I held my breath for a moment as that is not a natural sight. Four people covered head to toe, no eye contact no sign of human attributes, we are evolved animals we use our body language consciously and unconsciously to convay our intent.
    PS: The burka is the single most virtue signaling piece of clothing to exist.

    After years of not wearing headscarf at all my mum started wearing one whenever she went out and she started wearing it at the same time she decided she wanted to start praying regularly, which she didn't before, and my dad and elders asked her why she was wearing it all of a sudden, and she simply said that now that she has started praying regularly she felt that she should also keep the scarf on, because you have to do a special wash called wudhu before each time you give the 5 daily namaaz and if you keep your head uncovered for a long time, the wudhu automatically breaks and then you have to do it again, which is inconvenient if you are short of time, so keeping on a scarf was easier for her so that she didn't constantly have to keep re-washing before each prayer. It's silly to come to conclusion that such women are oppressed if they wear religious items of clothing for head cover, when many muslim women, especially living in the UK in fact start doing it out of choice.

    As a Dane - the point of the ban here is completely missed by parts of the rest of the world. In Denmark it is illegal to hide your identity. This is a rule mainly made to outlaw rioters in hoods and that sort of stuff, but also in general to make sure no one can break laws without being identifiable. The hijaab and the chador does not fall under this, however the burka and niqab does. This is not an oppression of religion or racism - this is a basic law made to ensure the safety and security of law abiding citizens. Anyone claiming anything else are just plain idiotic and are spreading their own opinions as if they were facts - they aren't!

    This is the official ban:
    Full face helmets worn when you are not on a bike (or other dangerous activities where a helmet is advised)
    Hood (which includes Burka and Niqab)
    Facepaint which hides identity

    Making this a racism issue is god damn sick and fucking disgusting. Also - Boris Johnson can go fuck himself! I know a lot of you make fun of Theresa May - however you guys would have had that asshole as Prime minister if she hadn't steeped up when everyone else was fleeing the sinking ship - think about that fact! LOL

      @Haradion Drogon Oh you want examples? Ok let's start really small end then: there isn't a problem with Muslim woman shoplifting and doing trick robberies in places like trainstations and such robbing people of their wallets, phones and such?? Huh... really I guess it's all lies then...... And oh yeah let's go to the other end of the scale m8 - There has never been suicide bombers and terrorist attacks committed by people in burkas right? If you can't see a persons face, you have no chance spotting such a person... So - to be quite frank sir: Sod off with your condescending and opinionated views m8. It IS - i repeat IS in the interest of public safety and to ensure law and order. And if you are Muslim and see it as your right to wear clothes like the articles with falls under our law - by all means stay the F away! LOL And yeah the "I have a different opinion thus yours is invalid and only my opinion matters - so you are a racist" Islamic religious argument... Good job m8.

    Odd how after all the outrages connected to a religion that have been commited in an attempt to ruin or undermine the western way of life, people still defend religions way of life. Sometimes I think celebrities on these sort of shows try to arse kiss a politically correct society that is quickly expiring. I don't have an opinion on Boris Johnson I neither like or dislike him but I see where he's coming from. He'd of been better saying the burqa looks like a badly drawn post box not an actual postbox, then pricks like Alex Brooker wouldn't call him an idiot, or perhaps he would still call him because he's a thick twat as well as a prick. Religion keep your burqa, well keep our distance.

    It’s with everything, you can make jokes about something as long as you’re part of that something. Black people can make jokes about black people, gay people can make jokes about gay people, disabled people can make jokes about disabled people. Muslim people can make jokes about Muslim people, not white people that don’t follow that religion, not even middle eastern people that don’t follow that religion.

    Burka: what you see is what you get. A woman who covers her face voluntarily is simply bringing the third world of a different culture, namely a certain Islam, into Britain. This is why many countries in Europe and some Muslim countries have banned Burka. The State is entitled to ban the Burka as the state is entitled to force people to pay taxes, keep restaurant kitchen clean and demand certain diplomas for civil servants. It is not appropriate in western countries that have graduated to the modern and enlightened era to accept the Burka. It has nothing to do with oppression and everything to do with culture. And the women who used to wear Burka in other countries and can no more, simply wear a headscarf. Fight for your culture. Demand that Burka be banned.

    What a little snot. Burkas have nothing to do with the body shape of Muslim women! Burkas and even hijabs are meant to cover the bruises on Muslim women ! The madman Mohammed told Muslim men that they are required to beat their wives daily if the want to get into heaven. Burkas are the most evil sign of the oppression of women that we have on Earth. All burkas must be burned!!

    The problem is not them wearing the full face covers, because they want to be closer to their imaginary sky daddy. It's with them wanting to integrate in our society. They expect us to hire them for our companies, they expect us to act normal and to treat them no different than we treat each other. But how am I supposed to treat someone the same, when they don't even have the courtesy to show me their faces? How am I supposed to hire them for my company, put them behind a desk and expect them to meet my costumers? It's not possible in our society! They won't even participate in the most common gesture in western society! Shaking hands!

    The point is, anyone could be under the burka, and there are people out there who would exploit it and commit crimes, this reflects badly on those that wear them for religious purposes, it's because of the uncertainty behind it..
    I mean, it's annoying because we're not allowed to have opinions on other religions because it's nothing to do with us, buts it's all around us, it's come from a foreign country and we're either forced to understand and accept it or we get put in prison and labeled a racist.

I think if anyone off any back ground wannted to do something they shouldnt rob rape murder you would use the full face one or letter box because it be harder to figure out who do it. And anyone could be under there. Then ppl jump it muslims that done even if it werent. It is muslims that believe in this. It dnt matter. For a passport u cant wear it can you. I mean ppl want protest i think wear the full one or the letter box sorry forgot whats it called if goverment make a fuss. U see use do have a problem. I mean ur banning two off them not the lot. Yes they should be allowed but it comes with all complication. I thought it had not mich to do with god at 14 they have to cover there hair because that the sogn beauty and same if they marry.

    This is Britain. We are to a large extent 'free' people. Therefore they should be allowed to wear what they want. I am sick of government intervention in ever aspect of everyone's lives! So we make the rules to promote so-called Freedom of Right and then when we come up
    against an issue we don't know what to do. Typical Britain, where we do not seem to think about many things before we act in the first place. This is just the beginning. As they say when you go to Rome do what the Romans do! But we are not and will never be the Romans either.

    When I were a lad I went to Spain. Most of the nuns wore full face veils and they were HUGELY respected for their religious vows. Fast forward to 21st century Britain and we're terrified of Muslim women in veils! Guess what? The media is constantly scaring us against them. Anti Muslim Britain or what? Who's orchestrating it? who keeps wanting to bomb Muslim countries? You know who! Don't hate. How is a women under a sheet a threat?

    The government must've gotten it's people paranoid with its propaganda against Islam. I am more scared of my own government and policing in this country then al-Qaeda. al-Qaeda aren't got time for my a...

    the UK's National Secular Society came out against a burka ban, saying "the NSS opposes any attempt to legally ban the burka or niqab. We do so on two grounds of principle: a woman's right to choose what she wears, i.e. her right to free expression; and her right to religious freedom."
    Secularism is about respecting the right of people to follow any religion equally (or none), and of keeping religion out of politics and politics out of religion. Secularism is a check and balance against fundamentalist excess. Sensible people of faith are, or ought to be, secularists - unless they follow a brand of religion that wants to control everybody.

    The question is not about to veil or not to veil but for every woman to have the right to choose. This is question of basic human right including the right to freedom of religion and expression. French administrators have played into people's fears and intolerance without adequately answering what great threat was posed by girls going to school in a headscarves? I do not believe in taking the rights of other people, and doing so shows the weakness of French democracy.

    Burqa is not locking women, it is a buffer line between protecting chastity and exposing. Being naked and drunk is acceptable but being
    covered and modest is inhuman.

    Surely nobody should be telling women what they can and can't wear. Face covering? Would that extend to my precious Ray Bans? Why not... apparently face-recognition cameras don't work when confronted by the simple sun glasses. And what about bushy beards and moustaches? And what next... hoods, floppy wide-brimmed hats, anti-pollution masks, scarves? Where does this silliness end? Just for peoples information when security's a concern the women can remove the veil and the few I've spoken to do.. On the grand scale of things how much of an issue is this really? Don't be distracted. Around 0.1% of the UK's Muslim population were a veil.

    Many have observed that today, modern Britain is responsible for objectifying women as sexual objects. The nations favourite newspaper still offers a daily dose of page 3 and it has been estimated that 13% of all internet searches have erotic content[2]. Indeed when Google releases the top 10 search strings of the year they have to discount all of the ones relating to porn otherwise all 10 would be un-publishable. Most of these sites have of course been developed by western companies seeking profits. You would have thought the Tory party would have plenty to keep themselves busy with as regards the furthering the plight of women. At least they would do if they all weren’t so busy watching it. A freedom of information request from the Huffington Post[3] revealed that the House of Commons authorities acknowledged that users of the Parliamentary Network servers, including both MPs and their staff, have repeatedly attempted to access websites classed on Parliament's network as pornographic between May 2012 and July 2013. The number of attempts to access pornographic websites via the Parliamentary network peaked for 2012 at 114,844 last November and at 55,552 in April for 2013. Perhaps someone should send them some Niqab so they can cover their faces in shame.

    We live in an overly vain culture that is having a detrimental effect upon the mental health of young women. We live in an overly promiscuous society in which abortion rates keep going up along with sexually transmitted diseases. It is a reality that some women may choose to opt out completely of this culture because they find it burdensome and exhausting on the spirit. Modern society is failing women and this has social consequences, no wonder the majority of people turning to Islam in the West are women, and no wonder that many of the women who wear the Niqab are British born converts.

    The right to wear a Niqab is in-keeping with people’s freedom of expression which supposedly a modern day Britain seeks to preserve. The right to wear a Niqab is preserved under religious freedoms which supposedly a modern state should seek to uphold if it wants to remain in keeping with the UN charter. If a women believes it to be fore mostly an act of submission and dedication to their God, then I see no argument for a modern Britain to interfere. The niqab does not conflict with principles of feminism if it is a woman's chosen form of dress. A significant aspect of feminism is giving a women the right to choose what she wishes to do with her own body. Many women who wear the niqab regard it as empowering, claiming that those they encounter, give greater value to their speech over their cosmetic appearance. That may seem strange to some people, but is it stranger than nudist beaches, pole dancing clubs or barely clad ladies staggering home in stilettoes after a night out on the tiles? Cultural conditioning and social constructions alone seem an unfair method of determining that which is ‘normal’.

    French president wants Muslim women to be topless like his wife who posed topless in fashion shows. He has no right to ban the Burqa because it is undemocratic and an unqualified attack on individual freedom. Burqa is not just a piece of cloth but a lot of ideological and cultural connotation to it. Women are just being exploited in the name of rights. Burqa protects women's rights and treat each women like a princess. No one has the right to ban the freedom of choice in a secular and democratic country. The right to choice is a basic fundamental right the person should have.

    One Muslim woman, Caroline Chaiima, writing in, said she wore a veil: "Let those most closely concerned speak. I am a French woman born in France, with French parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, and I am a Muslim. I wear the full veil and I feel like saying: So what? I am happy behind the veil, I protect myself from depraved stares. Neither my father, nor my brother, nor my husband forced the full veil upon me; it's a personal choice."

      I have never seen a nun wearing a face veil in my life. If you want to live in a country were this oppression of women is institutionalised, then there are plenty of Muslim countries to go and live. The quality of life in these countries is very bad and that is because of the dominant ideology. You and European Muslim choose to live in secular democracies for a reason. Do not then bring your misogynistic pre-Islamic practices of covering women in veils and hiding then indoors to free countries.

    Is nobody allowed to mock religion any more? Why not? Islam especially needs ridicule now more than ever.

    I've legit reported 4 comments and their no longer on here. Why the fuck is it that when most girls dress like fucken whores and hookers. They don't get judged for it. When some Ladies cover our bodies from filthy pedophile men. We get called fucking letter boxes. Big fucking deal. Some Ladies have pride in themselves and cover up. We don't like having our boobs jumping out or our ass cheeks on display. 😐😐😐💔
