hijabs in australian schools.

Young anti immigrant redneck cultural terrorist Liberal bright spark, "Stick it to 'em" Sophie Panopoulos doesn't miss a chance to throw the boot in. She has put forward the highly original idea of a ban on the wearing of headscarves to school by Muslim girls. She obviously has her eyes on the immigration portfolio some time in the future.

The argument to justify this stance is wonderful -- hijabs should be banned because wearing them is "more an act of rebellion than anything" according to Sophie, who has obviously spoken to many Islamic schoolgirls on this topic. I am sure that is what it is all about -- young girls like to be subjected to unwanted scrutiny, just so they can feel bad.

However, I think that Sophie has met her match. Brendon Nelson says that he defends the right to wear 'religious dress' school. That is fine, even though I would have thought that this is a matter for the states and has nothing to do with good old Brendon (but maybe his state sponsored education did not cover the concept of federalism -- he seems to be trying to stick his fingers in everywhere these days). But nevertheless, I am happy admit that Brendon and I do agree on this.

Sophie must be seen to be un-Ostrayan, if she is to disagree with that embodiment of Australian nationalism spirit, Nelson (and his donkey). Brendon might just have to call for her deportation (or just some deportment?). I would be happy if she was to just fuck off. (And maybe read the bit in the Constitution about how the Commonwealth shall not prohibit the free exercise of any religion)

Do you think defamation could be an issue?
