The veil truth and nothing but the truth!

Does allowing lawyers to wear veils in court help integrate Muslims into mainstream UK society or is it another fillip to politicial correctness?

Are jurors and defendants already allowed to wear the veil in court? How do jurors prove their identity each day?

Interesting that this should happen just as there is much talk about the removal of horse hair wigs from Judges and Legal bods in order to make them less intimidatory and easier to recognise....

Eeeee eck Snafu, you couldn't make it up mate.

Anonymous, apologies! It's been corrected now!

Alfie, excellent point!

What happens if both the defence and prosecution lawyers are wearing veils!?!

Judge to barrister: Remove that veil.
She does so.
Court in unison: Put it on again.
