French headscarf ban

Well, the French lower house passed the headscarf ban - excuse me, the ban on all obvious religious symbols. *cough cough*

I like to think that Britain is a fairly cosmopolitan place, that we in the UK are fairly good at integrating our immigrants into the melting pot that is our culture, best symbolised by our mongrel language. Likewise I do not think it is wrong to say that we are, for all our faults, one of the least racially divisive countries in Europe. We got to be where we are today by doing precisely the opposite of what the French are doing now.

Another reason to be especially skeptical of the EU while it remains beholden to this corrupt and intolerant government and political nation.
