and another twist on the same tale :-
BBC NEWS | Europe | French pool bans 'burkini' swimFrench pool bans 'burkini' swim
French officials have banned a Muslim woman from swimming in a public pool while wearing a swimsuit that covers her entire body.
The woman had swum in July in the pool in Emerainville, east of Paris, in the "burkini" - a loose-fitting garment resembling a wetsuit with a hood.
But staff stopped her from swimming in August, citing hygiene concerns.
So are the French yet again correct in strong determination of what is chique and the items that are most definately not.
