Woolas has irony by-pass operation

Phil Woolas has put his oar into the 'veil debate' by declaring that a teaching assistant that has been suspended for wearing the full-veil should be sacked.

The criticism that lessons were difficult to understand is perfectly reasonable, but that isn't the point. The irony lies in the fact that Mr Woolas is the minister for "communities and local government".

Has it ever occured to him that "communities" might get on better if they were left to sort this sort of thing out for themselves without the intervention of central government?

I'm increasingly of the opinion that my fourth year boys (Standard Grade History for the criminally-insane) could do with wearing a get-up like this...
