Do not wear a burka under your lid, it may confuse them.

It's getting a bit old hat now. As much as I dislike having to remove my helmet in a store it's pretty much the norm nowadays.

Yes, it seems stupid that you have to take your helmet off when people of a certain religious persuasion don't have to remove their coverings but that is down to todays PC society where no one want's to offend minoritys because of the political climate.

Just remember those people in the store are on minimum wage, have been told helmets are not allowed and are shit scared of losing their shitty jobs. Give them a break.

I just wonder how many shop robberies/petrol station drive-aways etc are committed nationally by women wearing niqabs or burkas compared with yooves wearing crash helmets?

There are some examples of where burkas have been used in the UK in crimes, and in escapes from police, but not that many.

It might be useful to follow the example of others, and ban "face coverings" in public places (no wandering about in burkas, crash helmets, pulled-up balaclava helmets, bandanas etc.). Alternatively, make the wearing of such things mandatory for all.... Smile
