West Midlands Police may let Muslim officers wear burqas and niqabs in effort to boost diversity

One of Britain's largest police forces is considering allowing Muslim officers to wear the burka while on duty in an effort to boost diversity.

West Midlands Police Chief Constable, David Thompson, said the force would not rule out allowing female officers to wear the outfit which includes a long flowing outer garment from head to toe and an Islamic veil, or niqab, that covers all facial features except the eyes.
No Muslim has even asked for this. CC offered his remarks at a meeting about 'diversity'.

I don't know if this guy ever had any sense of perspective but clearly it is lacking now. He should be dismissed - and replaced by a salafi. Police should forget British law and enforce Shari'a.

The only way they would ever let them wear a burqa is if they were in the counter-terrorist team. Not a chance in hell of a bobby wearing a burqa - it will never happen.

I look forward to the day when police officers can wear gorilla suits.

I wonder if the elected PCC who is a Labour member is involved in this push for 'diversity'?

From another article:

Labour councillor Diane Donaldson, who represents the Hodge Hill ward in Birmingham, said: 'I am in favour of allowing women to wear their burkas during service.

'It's not going to stop them carrying out their job properly.'

Labour councillor Sybil Spence, who represents the Soho ward, said: 'When it comes to dressing, it's about feeling comfortable.

'It won't hinder women from doing their proper job.

'As long as they are well-trained and they're doing their job and you can see their faces, then that's all that matters. '

Che Donald, diversity spokesman for the Police Federation of England and Wales, said: 'Forces need to be representative of the communities they serve, so there is flexibility in making adjustments to reflect officers' beliefs..

All he said was that they would have to consider it if someone asked. So what? It's not as though it would actually be allowed.

I wonder will the authorities be issuing support to any women from a certain patriarchy dominated background, who decide that they wish to come out as lesbian, but who are likely to face death threats ?

Ah come on, this is the only chance our Islamaphobes have had to let their hair down in ages. The Anti Semites, the Israel/Palestine fanatics and the permanently angry pro life swivel eyed loons have been having all the fun lately.

Abortion should be banned in Britain, too.
