The Reverend Fred (preying for reign) Nile has called on the banning of
muslim women from wearing traditional Islamic dress (like the burqa).
Great idea, Fred, but why stop with the Burqa? Why not legislate against mini-skirts,
high-heels, and those pushy-up bras? They are totally tastless - especially
when worn by men.
And backward baseball caps, and those trousers with the crotch around the knees

offensive pictures could go too - like the pictures of farting dogs humping
Perhaps we could orchestrate a return to the dizzying days of the Maoist
era, in which a quarter of the world's population were forced to wear government approved 'Mao

actually ruled this out. Of course the government only wants what's

his way he will let us wear whatever we want behind our mandatory picket
Of course he may have problems manufacturing consent for it - while some
think that the burqa should be banned, others think that, for feminists like Eva Cox, it

that weapons (such as stap-on explosives) could be concealed under the
burqa. His real concern is clear: women with strapons.
