Curbs on wearing the full Muslim veil come a step closer in France today with a report that will call for a ban on the dress in post offices, universities, hospitals and state-owned premises, as well as public transport.

    Good news for British Universities. We will receive an influx of intelligent, interesting young women who are perfectly easy to teach. Some of them may decide after attending university that they don’t want to wear the chador or burka. Some of them won’t.

    It is one thing to argue with someone that something they do is oppressing them. It is another to discriminate against someone because they do that thing (either from free choice or because they are being coerced into it). I hope that this new law falls the moment that it gets to the European courts.

    By the way, there is no such thing as “the full Muslim veil”: there is the chador, the burka, the hajib etc, etc.

    Enjoy the influx.

    First the French brought these people in for cheap labor to rebuild after the war, with this delusional notion that after 20 or so years they’d all travel back.

    Then they thought the kids would all travel back. Then the grandkids. Not happening.

    They still won’t consider these 2nd generation French Muslims full-fledged French, but now they won’t let them be full-fledged Muslims either.

    This will not end well.
