The Prime Minister of Australia, Tony Abbott, has come out and said that he wishes the burka “was not worn” in Australia, and indicated that he might support calls to ban the disgusting ninja costume.
Coalition backbenchers Cory Bernardi and George Christensen have said they believe the burka should be removed at security checkpoints coming into the building.
Speaker of the House Bronwyn Bishop and Senate President Stephen Parry are seeking advice from security agencies but are yet to make a decision.
Mr Abbott said Parliament House had to be treated as a secure building.
“It is perfectly appropriate that in certain circumstances people be required to show their face. There can’t be one rule for one form of attire and a different rule for another form of attire,” he said.
“It has to be the same rules for everyone and if the rules require you to show your face, well, you show your face.
“This is a secure building and it is important that people be able to be identified, it is important that people be able to be recognised as the people for whom a pass has been issued.”
But he cautioned against inflating the issue.
“Has anyone ever sought entry to this building so attired? As far as I am aware, no,” he said.
“And making a big song and dance about a hypothetical I am not sure is particularly helpful.
“But I just want to stress that this is a secure building and it should be governed by the rules that are appropriate for a secure building and obviously people need to be identifiable in a secure building such as this.”
Attorney-General George Brandis said it was “none of his business” if people wore the burka but added there may be times when it should be removed.
“There may be particular circumstances in which people should be required to reveal their identity and those rules should apply equally to everyone regardless of what garment they may be wearing that might conceal their identity,” he told the National Press Club.
Opposition Leader Bill Shorten said Mr Abbott should have kept his personal views about the burka to himself.
Obviously, people are becoming increasingly fed-up with the invasive aliens occupying our countries. The weird ninja/ghost outfit of the Muslim female is a core representation of the alien nature of these people, and rather than simply kick them all out, politicians would rather soothe the rising rage of the people by trying to make these invaders less disgusting.
However, even if Muslim women stop wearing burkas, they will still smell horrible.
