    Police officers and midwives wearing the full face veil.

    Government integration expert says she 'wants to see faces' of Muslim police officers and midwives

    Dame Louise Casey has published a major report into social integration in the UK.

    An expert tasked to probe integration between different communities in Britain has said she would rather Muslim police officers and midwives did not wear a face veil, adding "I want to see their faces".

    Dame Louise Casey said she strongly opposed forcing people by law to remove veils, but explained that public bodies needed a "common sense" approach and that people and organisations should be able debate the issue openly.

    Get the rest of the story from The Independent HERE




    When I first read this I was flabbergasted.

    I did not know that female Muslim police officers have been wearing the full-face veil on duty, and I have no knowledge of Muslim Midwives doing this either.

    Does any of the rest of the ROBsters have any experience of this happening ?

    It's a total nonsense that female Muslim police officers are able to hide their faces behind a full face veil.

    Equally, Islamic female midwives, and of course ordinary nurses and doctors should never hide their faces in this way either.

    How bloody stupid can you get ?

    I have to admit that I have no evidence of this happening, but if it does it has to be just plain wrong.

    The latest from The Mail.

    What a burka! Police chief says he could let officers wear full-length veils to attract more 'ethnic minority officers'... but even Muslims think it's a mad idea.

    I doubt that this cop had any idea what this suggestion might do to public opinion.

    I think that is a senior police officer trying to be politically correct. I have no objection to hijab, but niqab is a hinderance to people who are deaf, and a full burqa will hinder the officer in the performance of her duties, especially in a chase situation, also it could allow her to be overcome and tangled up in her own garment. Not good Health and Safety policy.

    The whole idea is ludicrous.

    I see no reason for female Muslim police officers to not wear the headscarf, without compromising the freedom that all police officers require. After all the Sikh religion can do these jobs quite well enough in turbans.

    As you say, HG, this is PC gone mad.
