St Paul would be affronted
There is an admonition in all the Abrahamic religions for women to dress modestly. Some Spanish authorities have enforced public cover-ups well into this century, and the bathing-machine survived to the age of photography on Britain's beaches. So it is perverse as well as shameful for armed men to insist on women to remove burkinis and it is good to see the French supreme court restoring sanity and liberal values.
