Britain wants a burka ban, poll reveals – as support in Germany soars
by Will Kirby
Britons want to ban the burka according to a new poll which found more women than men want to outlaw the controversial Muslim headdress.
The new poll by YouGov, published on Tuesday, found 50 per cent of 1,609 people questioned wanted to ban the burka in Britain.
That number compared to 70 per cent of 7,101 Germans questioned in a separate YouGov survey.
The study shows a seven point increase in support to ban the burka in Germany, compared with a similar study in August last year.
