Watching Newsnight on the wearing of the niqab in Britain

The thing which really amused me was the introduction where they said (and I paraphrase) that the wearing or the niqab is condemned by the BNP and Feminists.
Lumping those two groups together has go to be one of the most maladroit links I have ever heard

Think it was deliberate. Could add the security services and Max Factor to the list.
