Australian politician shocks Parliament by wearing a burqa

Post Neon Knight on Tue 3 Oct - 14:11

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4798100/Pauline-Hanson-shocks-Senate-wearing-Islamic-  Quoting:

One Nation party leader Pauline Hanson has shocked the Senate by walking into the chamber wearing a burqa.

The Queensland Senator, who has been outspoken about her opposition to the burqa, was pictured in the Islamic garb when she appeared at Parliamentary Question Time on Thursday afternoon. Standing to address the Senate, Ms Hanson called for the Government to ban 'oppressive' full-face coverings.  

She pulled the stunt ahead of a debate on full-face coverings in public.
'I'm quite happy to remove this, because this is not what should belong in this Parliament,' she said. Her appearance was met with laughter and outrage, prompting Senate President Stephen Parry to call for order. 'In light of our national security of this nation, will you work to ban the burqa in Australia?' she said . . .

Ms Hanson said the idea for her burqa stunt was born when Senate President Stephen Parry told her last year that anyone could wear a burqa in Parliament.

She's no prettier than the male poticians are handsome. Her irrational hate of migrants is OTT. That said, Australia has had significantly Asian and Moslem migration in the last 20 years that haven't assimilated well. They've arrived at the lucky country to sponge off others.

And New Zealands lax immigration and residency policies allowed them a back door to Oz. When they closed that, it affected real New Zealnders access to our brother country. Shameful really.

So the Australian points system immigration policy is not working well? Some want to have the same system here but others say it is too complicated. What system do you think would be best, Frank?

I think that it is shaky ground,dictating what kind of clothing a woman should wear. That is their business. Is not Australia a free country? Have there been incidences of explosives being hidden in the burka ?

Those Muslim women have it hard enough as it is . I imagine that their men would not allow them to leave the house without the full garb.

I feel sorry for them.

Hanson there makes the usual 'nationalist' mistake of trying to justify her dislike of something foreign with practical reasons - usually fear of terrorism and other crimes, which doesn't really wash. She and others like her should just be honest - they don't like the burqa because it looks very strange and quite sinister. You could say these are aesthetic objections, but aesthetics does matter.

Both Australia and NZ use a variation of the points system. But once one family member gets through, it opens up options for the rest of the family. If applied fairly, it's an okay system. It's not complicated.

I'm not sure of the differences between Australia and the UK's visa schemes so can't really comment. I've never questioned an immigrant on the subject. For NZ'ers (traveling on an NZ passport), we just fly to Australia, apply for the appropriate social security numbers, get a job and carry on living. Asians, Middle Eastern, Polynesians and African migrants have abused this backdoor so today, there is no reciprocal state welfare backup for NZ'ers in Oz. However, NZ still looks after Australians.

I've never applied for a NZ passport and use my British passport when traveling (I'm a citizen here but my when re-entering NZ, it is as a permanant resident).

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4955430/Denmark-European-country-ban-burka.html


Denmark looks set to become the next European country to restrict the burqa and the niqab, worn by some Muslim women, after most parties in the Danish parliament backed some sort of ban on facial coverings.

Full and partial face veils such as burqas and niqabs divide opinion across Europe, setting advocates of religious freedom against secularists and those who argue that such garments are culturally alien or a symbol of the oppression of women. The niqab covers everything but the eyes, while the burqa also covers the eyes with a transparent veil. France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Bulgaria and the German state of Bavaria have all imposed some restrictions on the wearing of full-face veils in public places.

'This is not a ban on religious clothing, this is a ban on masking,' Jacob Ellemann-Jensen, spokesman for the Liberal Party, told reporters on Friday after his party, the largest in the coalition government, decided to back a ban. This would effectively mean a ban on the niqab and the burqa, he added. Around 200 women in Denmark wear such garments, according to researchers.

The three-party centre-right minority government, its ally the Danish People's Party and the main opposition Social Democrats have all said they are in favour of a ban, though they are still discussing how the ban should be designed and enforced.

'There will come a masking ban in Denmark. That's how it is,' Foreign Minister Anders Samuelsen said on Facebook

New restrictions come into force in Austria on Sunday banning the wearing of the full Islamic veil and other items concealing the face in public places and buildings.

Exemptions "under certain conditions" include items like clown disguises "at cultural events", work wear such as medical masks, and scarves in cold weather, the government says.

The restrictions are aimed at "ensuring the cohesion of society in an open society", it says. Violations will be punished with a fine of up to €150 ($177). "Acceptance and respect of Austrian values are basic conditions for successful cohabitation between the majority Austrian population and people from third countries living in Austria," Vienna says. The measures, similar to those in other European Union countries, also apply to visitors even though large numbers of Arab tourists holiday in the Alpine country.

The legislation was brought in by the outgoing centrist government of Chancellor Christian Kern. Elections on October 15 are expected to see the anti-immigration Freedom Party (FPÖ) come second or third and potentially enter a coalition with Sebastian Kurz of the centre-right. Kurz, who is only 31, has managed to steal considerable numbers of voters from the FPÖ, polls show, experts say in part due to him moving to the right on issues such as immigration. "The immigration seen in recent years is changing our country not in a positive but in a negative way," Kurz told German television in an interview broadcast this week.

Other measures to apply from October 1st include immigrants signing an "integration contract" and compulsory courses in the German language and "values".
