As much as I respect Nigel Farage for his help in getting Brexit to become a reality (at least on the way to becoming one), this is something that he would never sign on to, and should have.
UKIP leader Paul Nuttall will put a ban on wearing full-face veils at the centre of his general election campaign this week.
He will propose action to tackle the rise of Islamic extremism and promote social integration in his party’s manifesto.
It would put Britain in line with France, Belgium and Bulgaria where the burka – which covers the entire body including face – is outlawed.
Mr Nuttall believes garments such as the burka and niqab are a barrier to social harmony and a security risk.
Launching Ukip’s “integration agenda”, he will also propose an explicit ban on Sharia law being applied in the UK – and all existing sharia courts disbanded.
