After all that fuss about women wearing the hijab, I can’t believe that this problem hasn’t been an issue before. What is the point of having photo ID if no-one is allowed to see your face? It’s bit like having one of those fingerprint security thingies for your PC, but always having to wear gloves. Totally pointless.
I’m not being ‘ist about this. If women want to be fully veiled, that’s fine by me, but they probably should expect to have to pay the full fare on the buses. But it also begs the question: What happens at passport control? Not a lot apparently.
