The new law for the New Order


These are policewomen.

Not in Pakistan, mind you. In England.

Saith the Daily Mail:

Three female police officers were ordered to dress up as Muslim women for the day just to see what it felt like.

They wore traditional burkhas as part of a scheme designed to help police interact better with the Islamic community. Two covered their faces with hijab headscarves and niqab veils, leaving only narrow slits to see through, and another wore Muslim dress and a headscarf showing her face.

Yes, they'd better see what it feels like. The day is not far off when they will have no choice about wearing Muslim clobber while writing traffic tickets or busting college kids for joking that a horse is gay.

Sergeant Deb Leonard - who wore one of the burkhas, said: "I have gained an appreciation and understanding of what Muslim females experience when they walk out in public in clothing appropriate to their beliefs.

'We are keen to gain a better understanding of issues which our communities face.'

Sergeant, your desire to understand your communities' "issues" does you proud. May I suggest that in your next cross-cultural venture you dress up as an indigenous Englishwoman. Walk through a council estate. Walk in the central city when the pubs close and blind drunk customers take over the street. Empathize with the feelings of the declining native British majority who are afraid to go out at night because the U.K. is the most violent country in Europe and probably in the Western world.

Or not. Soon enough you'll be enforcing sharia law and there won't be any pubs and there won't be any Englishwomen walking alone. You won't have to endure the bother of policing "Behead the Infidels" demonstrations, because those who are now demonstrating will be in charge and they'll have the law to back them up.

Meanwhile, and I hope you won't think this is just flattery, may I say your Muslim-for-a-Day uniforms really suit you.

I think I'll wear a 'fat suit' around for a week, just to learn what it 'feels like' to be fat. Or maybe I'll just gorge myself into obesity.

Isn't non-discriminationism just wonderful!...

I'm going to dress like a politician for a couple of days, see if it gives me a winning personality.
