Drawing a veil over Labour ministers.

Byline: MARY MCPHEE Stourbridge

Dear Editor, With reference to Muslim women wearing the veil, I would like them to understand they may have been born in this country but they obviously do not understand our indigenous etiquette.

To speak face-to-face signifies being open, not trying to hide anything and, to us, being respectful.

Facial expression, especially joy or sadness, can be seen and enjoyed or commiserated with. This is just plain common sense and, if you'll forgive the pun, common sense must prevail.
