She's Learning

12/6/16 U.K. Sun:

[Merkel] said: “With us, the rule is: show your face, that’s why the full veil is not appropriate, it should be banned.”
The CDU party wants to ban the full face veil in courts, schools and universities as well as in road traffic and during police checks.
A full ban as introduced in France is thought to be incompatible with Germany’s rules.
While there is a public safety argument for the ban rather like the bans on face masks on the street that some American cities have, let's face it: the real reason is to make the more extremist branches of Islam unwilling to operate in Germany.

I wonder if this learning is because of the problems caused by bringing in so many Muslim refugees, or she is watching Trump's success.

The Worldcon in Reno, NV was held at a convention center and hotel with a casino attached. One of the warnings was that masks and heavy make-up that obscured the face were not allowed in the casino.

Presumably veils would be banned for similar reasons.
