Philip Hollobone is right; he should be supported by the public, the police and by the government. The Conservative Party MP (the ONLY one with reasonable expenses claims) has "been warned he could face legal action if he follows through on a threat to refuse to meet constituents wearing the veil". 'Women have a right to wear veil' says Liberty [Guardian].
Lawyers for Liberty have written to insisting that his stance is unlawful and that they "will be happy to represent any of your constituents that you refuse to meet because they are veiled".This is complete bollocks. Anyone also has a right to wear any of THESE, but would it be permitted, accepted, tolerated? No, of course not.
The group warns him that the UK's Equality Act and the European convention on human rights (ECHR) oblige him to avoid discrimination.
