You'd have Islamist hardliners sending out their women in face coverings as a deliberate taunt. UKIP/BNP supporters out on the streets to protest, and police having to sort out the mess. A recipe for civil disorder.
Civil disorder might be the least of our problems if islamisation is not stopped in its tracks.

If everyone accepts Islamisation, there will be no need for civil disorder.

Was there civil disorder when Christianity was introduced?

Sallyann1234,

Whilst I am against a ban, they have in France and Belgium since 2011 and Austria since last year, but I haven't seen such protests. The Dutch have passed a ban and it awaits Senate approval and Merkel has called for a ban in Germany. They obviously don't expect the problems you forecast.

My understanding is that their restrictions have been applied in a limited manner, rather than an outright ban. And not without some protests.

SITREP from my vantage point in Paris.

Low level protests, yes. Well understood by police. Limited to a few individuals and banlieu. Little reporting. Generally ignored.

Corbyn 'planning to dismantle' UK defences

I've been away from the news since Friday, and have been catching up. I've seen this headline in a few online places, but am only able to identify it as remarks made about 'Crazy Jezza' by third parties. Now I'm no Jezza fan, but this (unless I'm mistaken) is despicable fake news of the worst kind. Presenting 'my' opinion about 'you', as something 'you' said is shoite reporting of the worst kind imo.

So, is he planning to dismantle the country's defences? Or has he said he'll have a defence review? Perhaps for this bit of the thread, posters might refrain from posting what they think he might do, and concentrate on his policy statements. Ta.

I take it that's a wind-up.

History tells us it didn't happen without violence. Mostly against the Christians.

We have had the reformation and the enlightenment. Islam hasn't. It's adherents, or the more deranged ones at any rate, believe they have a God-given right to persecute non-believers, subjugate women, possess slaves and practice amputations and summary execution.

The work of Satan.

Enough said.

I would hope that we've moved on, societally, from an era wherein the gumment decrees and enforces a dress code.

There is quite enough Islamophobic crap without the gumment wading in knee-deep to a morass.

And this in the Independent, which currently is far, far to the left of even the Grauniad.....

I'm glad Jeremy Corbyn is putting aside trivial subjects like Trident to concentrate on what really matters

That's all we need!

Blair hints he could run for Parliament to fight Brexit.

He apparently hated the Commons when he was an MP before, and did his best to avoid going there any more than he absolutely needed to. Why should things be any different today? Quite honestly, the man would be a gift to the other candidates in almost any seat he pitched up in.

Talk about deluded. A lengthy period of silence is what is required from that man. For the rest of his life.

It could have been worse. At least he didn't actually use the words "I think you should vote LibDem".

For Muslims, Islam was the enlightenment.

It's all a matter of viewpoint.
