A magistrate today received a reprimand after refusing to deal with the case of a Muslim woman wearing a veil covering her face....A politician bottling it ? Get away!
Today's decision was rubber-stamped by the Lord Chancellor, Jack Straw, who has spoken out against the full face veil in the past.
Mr Murray left the hearing without explaining why - but said later he felt the way she was dressed raised identity issues.This is true. Also ridiculousness issues.
Hussain's lawyer, Judith Hawkins, said the young mother was "shocked and distressed" by Murray's "insensitive and unacceptable" treatment.Oh sure.... we can tell she's a sensitive soul all right:
She was convicted of criminal damage after causing £1,500 of damage to a council house when her family was thrown out for rent arrears.Yep, and she's the one the system backed. And thus was settled the debate over whether or not the courts were a wholly-owned subsidiary of the left.
Housing officers found graffiti sprayed on the walls and holes in the doors.
