TIME for an update on Carnita Matthews, the burqa-clad woman who called the Australian police racist for pulling her over for a Random Breath Test and, as she claimed, trying to force her burqa off to see if her face tallied with her licence photo.

You can read more here. But the gist is that she says the burqa-clad figure who signed a police statement wasn’t her.

The Dark Suit Is The Burka Of Western Cock And Balls

BBC1’s Question Time debated the Burka last night and whether it should be banned. Various types of tut-tut were expressed for the Islamic garment that shrouds the female form, turning women into living ghosts haunting British shopping precincts.

Phillip Hollobone MP Is Beyond Parody: Ban The Burqa And No ID

Says Mr Hollobone in the Independent:

“I would ask her to remove her veil. If she said: ‘No’, I would take the view that she could see my face, I could not see hers, I am not able to satisfy myself she is who she says she is. I would invite her to communicate with me in a different way, probably in the form of a letter.”
