Down The Rabbit Hole ... What A F*cking Sorry State!



Published on Sep 17, 2013
In what seems the most extreme case so far, a muslim woman has demanded her right to keep her face almost entirely covered whilst standing as a defendant in a trial by jury. Judge Murphy has issued a 36(!!!) page report giving his ruling, not on the verdict itself (but that it should have progressed so far), but on to what degree the court should give in to the demands of religious special treatment*

* I say 'special treatment' inasmuch as our loudly proclaimed sensitivity to cultural diversity often seems to apply, other than as pure lip-service, only when there is a religious aspect to the culture involved (almost as if when politicians, employers and teachers use the word 'culture' they really just mean 'religion').
