French Senate Ratifies Burkha Ban

                
Wearing a burka in public is set to become illegal across France after senators passed a nationwide ban. The country’s upper house voted by 246 votes to one in favour of the measure, although there were a number of abstentions. This means that a measure banning full face Islamic veils, also including the niqab, taken by the National Assembly, the lower house, in July was ratified.
           
           
It followed President Nicolas Sarkozy pledging to outlaw the ‘walking coffin’ which is ‘not welcome’ in France, and which he blames for causing all kinds of social tensions. Women who defy the planned law face fines of up to £125, or being ordered to attend citizenship classes. If a man, like a husband or a brother, is convicted of forcing a woman to wear a veil he will be fined £24,000 or jailed for a year. These sentences, which would be doubled if the ‘victim’ is a minor, are designed to avoid men subjugating women.
      
The measure will be become effective in the spring of 2011, subject to a six-month period of mediation, and possible appeals. Mr Sarkozy has argued that the law, which would apply to tourists arriving from countries such as Britain, is aimed at getting all Muslims to integrate fully into French society. 
         
The bill was carefully worded to try and avoid such legal problems. It is called ‘Forbidding the Dissimulation of the Face in the Public Space’, and makes no mention of the words ‘woman’or ‘veil’. Because France is a secular society there are no mentions of the words ‘Muslim’ nor ‘Islam’ either. 
             
STORY FROM HERE
        
Well, then - let's chalk one up for common sense and patriotism - no fucking grovelling to the cunts in France, then! If only our cowardly politicians would develop a spine the same ban could be made to work in Britain - but, of course, our ruling elite couldn't possibly allow that to happen  here in the EU's offshore  gulag!
            
POLITICIANS?

France is certainly standing up for what is right.  Good for them.
Nothing surprising that the "religion of peace" would threaten to blow up the Eiffel Tower.  I expect no less.

So I can't wear a full face bike helmet or a balaclava in France now? A little victory against the muzzies, but only a little very little one since the real fuckers will just keep their women indoors full time now - they will end up less free than when they had to dress like a cross between Demis Roussos and a ninja. But it's a bigger victory <span>against</span> freedom generally, because now a democratic government feels it has cart blanche to tell supposedly free citizens how they may dress. Sure, it's only the ninjas now but the genie is out of the bottle now. What's to stop them progressively banning everything deemed un-French until all that's left is berets, black trousers and stripy tops for men and Dior LBDs for women? In the long term this is an own goal. 

Sheriff said...

Hmmmm... I wonder who will surrender first.

Sheriff said...

Good For France!  We should do that in UK and USA too, Spidey.

Sheriff said...

Vive la France is all I can say, well done to them, they appear to be handling the 'Roma' issue with a firm hand also.
If only our Dave would grow a pair!

Sheriff said...

It will me more than a little interesting to see the reaction of the EUSSR to this latest move by the French government ..

Sheriff said...

Let the fun begin.

Sheriff said...

They are so predictable, TCL, they kicked off within minutes of the ban being announced - no premeditation or preparation there, then!! *DONT_KNOW*

I wish I could say the British government would follow suit, but I can't...... the whole lot of them haven't got one pair of balls between them! >:o

Just like you guys on the other side of the pond, we can't rely on our elected "representatives" to do the right thing - they continue to kiss MooseLimb arse instead of kicking it! >:o >:o >:o >:o >:o

Sheriff said...

I know what you're saying but I'm so glad that the French have finally stood up to the bastards. We are not permitted to wear full-face helmets, balaclavas, hoodies, or anything else that covers the face in banks and other places where there are security issues, AE, the only ones getting away with blue murder, (while throwing our tolerance right back in our faces), are MooseLimbs! >:o

The Labour government have, during the course of their thirteen-year programme of national destruction, intentionally scored the British own goal by continually caving in to Muzzie demands while trampling all over the rights of the indigenous population! >:o >:o >:o

And I'm not hopeful of any change in tactics from our current Brokeback Coalition who have made it clear that it would be "un-British" to ban the burkha - yet they are happy leave the smoking ban in place while pubs are closing down at the rate of 50 per week when they could simply give pubs and customers the choice of smoking or non-smoking pubs. By the way, a village pub that was forced to close down permanently because of the smoking ban was recently re-opened...... as a mosque! >:o >:o >:o >:o >:o

Own goal? Bring it on! ;) :-P :-P :-P :-P :-P :-P

Sheriff said...

Not Sarkozy, I think, Nickie. ;)

Sheriff said...

Damned right, Bunni, so many of us have really had enough of this appeasement crap, whatever we give these fuckers, it's never enough! >:o >:o >:o >:o >:o >:o >:o >:o >:o

Sheriff said...

I think iDave's problem is that, as a Red Tory, he thinks he already has a pair, FH, while the rest of us want an authentic Conservative government to put an end to this shit once and for all! ;)

Sheriff said...

They'll try to throw a spanner in the works, (as usual), CH, but something tells me they won't win this time. ;) :-P :-D

Sheriff said...

I can't wait, James! :-P :-P :-P

Sheriff said...

Why am I not surprised that a threat to the Eiffel Tower came in just a few minutes after the vote?

Indeed, Moslems were no doubt enraged that the matter was even up for a vote!

Sheriff said...

It will take a Conservative (and then some) government to sort this lot out I am afraid.

Sheriff said...

How ironic that it should be France, co-founder of the Evil EfuckingU and so everything diverse and multi-culti that should be leading the fightback by simultaneously banning the burkha and Roma. The EU will beat them down in their courts but at least the issue will get an airing, at last.

Sheriff said...

They'd better start getting used to it, mate - they are getting close to outliving their usefulness to the New World Order. ;) :-P

Sheriff said...

The EU courts will try, Banned, but if either France or Germany tells the EU to fuck right off, the EU tends to quickly scuttle off whimpering with its tail between its legs! ;)

Sheriff said...

Now all we need is for the bunch of spineless bastards in Westminster to follow the lead, mate. :-P :-P :-P :-P :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D
