Jilbab

by Dom Glennie

Personally I couldn't give two hoots if Shabina Begum was allowed to wear whatever it was she was trying to wear. I can certainly do without the self important speech that she chose to give afterwards.

"...rather it was a consequence of an atmosphere that has been created in Western societies post 9/11, an atmosphere in which Islam has been made a target for vilification in the name of the 'war on terror',"
"It is amazing that in the so-called free world I have to fight to wear this attire."
Get a grip! It is not amazing; having a school uniform policy that is limited in some way is hardly an example of tyranny.
