Should Britain ban the burka? 10 March 2010
Woman wearing the burka
Why is wearing the burka so divisive?

According to a recent poll in The Financial Times, more than half of voters in the five biggest European economies believe women should be banned from wearing the burka in public. Over half of those surveyed in Britain favoured a ban and UKIP has become the first political party to call for one. As part of our ‘Winning Women’s Votes’ series, Jenni is joined by Nigel Farage from UKIP and Salma Yaqoob from Respect to find out why the burka has become such a divisive issue in European politics.
