Caroline Spelman the Environment Secretary and one of the Government's most senior female Ministers has said wearing the Niqab is "dignified" and "empowering".
Speaking "as a woman" she went on to say " I don't, living in this country as a woman want to be told what I can and can't wear" which is exactly what London Muslim said perhaps in a slightly more colourful way.
Spellman arrived at her view after a visit to Afghanistan saying she now understands why some women choose to wear the Niqab.
London Muslim salutes Caroline for saying something which all women and feminists should be doing showing solidarity with women who should be free to chose what to wear without men in suits interfering.
London Muslim with a left of center political agenda but dont let that put you off.
I write about issues the mainstream Murdoch agenda ignores and more than happy to also take on the tiny minority of vociferous fruitcakes in my own community.
In addition I'm a long suffering supporter of QPR. So, a Muslim with a sense of humour
