The Netherlands have just banned the burqa, but enforcement is already an issue.
Maybe you believe someone should be able to wear as much clothing or as little clothing as possible, and to heck with what the state has to say.
But for the Dutch, faces must be uncovered in government buildings and on public transportation, and the ban includes ski masks and full-face helmets as well as the burqa and niqab.
Even though the law is now the law, officials are refusing to enforce the ban.
Staff on public transportation aren’t being compelled to deny entry to people with their faces covered, and the police say that enforcement is not a priority.
