    Exam rules are the same. If a student arrives in a veil, they have to be properly udentified by a member of staff. If they refuse they can't sit the exam.
    I'd love to know if any student has ever been refused on these grounds.

    Nobody would ever dare.

    Imagine the howls of protest from offended lefties everywhere.

    Not only would they, they would have to. Schools take exam regs very seriously, they have to, if they get caught breaking them then all of their students can be disqualified.

    I doubt it would happen though, anybody entered for an exam is told the rules in advance, and allowing a female member of staff to check identity in private would be a problem for a Muslim girl anyway.

    Yes they are, as are all public officials when identity needs to be confirmed, for example to verify that the woman standing at passport control is the same woman as depicted in her passport. She is entitled to do so in a private room and not in public, though.

    are they allowed to ask them to remove their veil?

    Not a lot of point in removing the veil...they all look the ruddy same anyway.

    More to the point is whether they are male or female....but it would be 100% against their p.c. rights to have to prove that.

    Why would it be a problem?

    Is it mpre acceptable if they just blow us up a little bit?
    And suppose we retaliate but not too often.....still ok?
    OK, answer me this. There have been a few terrorist attacks - how many of them have been carried out by people wearing a veil?

    I accept it's possible that one could hide a bomb under a burkha, but that doesn't seem to have happened. It's even harder to hide a bomb under a veil. It's quite easy to hide a bomb in a briefcase or coat pocket, so would you be in favour of the government banning briefcases and coats, too?

    I'd check their legs, a couple of blokes have escaped by using this disguise...

    An obvious typo. It should have said "wouldn't".

    Your chances of being blown up are far less than being run over by a bus,
    How long will that go on for?

    Probably until buses are no longer used as a form of transport.

    How does that relate to wearing a veil, though?
