More dislike of the Veil

Chris Doyle of Caabu points out that a BBC survey has reported that 1 in 3 people in the UK would support a ban on wearing veils in public (Telegraph). Debate in the Telegraph's letters continues to focus on the question of Islam and Tolerance, and comment suggests new government strategy is required to 'win Muslim hearts and minds'.

One in three people would support a ban on Muslim women wearing veils which cover their faces in all public places, according to a survey carried out for the BBC. Members of the public were asked whether they would back the introduction by the Government of a new law imposing such a ban.A third of respondents said they would approve, compared with just over half - 56 per cent - who said they would not and just under one in 10 said they did not know.
