Meanwhile, in the cash-strapped NHS...

Daily Express (hat tip Blognor Regis):
The "Inter-faith gown" is being piloted at Royal Preston Hospital after complaints from women that regulation dress was too revealing. Hospitals across the country are also being offered the £12 burkas (*) by an NHS clothing supplier. Doctors say that many women do not show up for vital operations because they fear the procedure will mean them breaking strict Islamic law.

The hooded "Inter-faith gown" is designed to reveal nothing but the patients’ eyes and hands and yet allow access for surgeons.

Last night Conservative MP Philip Davies, who has campaigned against political correctness, said the dress would stir up resentment on wards because patients would believe others were getting special treatment.

"This may be viewed as a reasonable request from one particular group of patients but what I would like to ask is where does that request lie in a hospital’s priorities?" he said. "It is another example of political correctness because it is the sort of thing that has been brought in because the words ‘faith’ and ‘race’ have been mentioned... A burka-style hospital gown is only high on the priority list because of the politically correct world we live in."
Inter-faith? Yeah, right.

(*) One medical supplies website offers normal patient gowns for as little as £4.31 each (including VAT, excluding bulk purchase discount).

I have a great idea! Muslims should go to their own hospitals, funded by themselves! Then they can indulge in all their craziness without normal people giving them funny looks!!

OTOH, this could be fun! If a doctor can't recognise a patient, he might give her the wrong (lethal) injection by mistake! Oh no! What a terrible tragedy! (Tee hee.)

If that was in the next hospital bed to me, I'd be out of the place like a shot.
She's either got very long breasts or has a suicide bomb strapped to her waist.

Hell's bells. I was born in that hospital (or Infirmary as it was then known).

I suppose the claimed cases of female patients not turning up for operations for the given reasons have been documented and can be presented.

I demand that EVERY hospital clothes females, both patients & nurses in this very stylish outfit. Green is definitely the 'IN' colour & a great coincidence! Occasional beatings (with a stick no thicker than the thumb, check with your friendly neighbourhood Imam) should be administered in the interests of discipline & calls to prayer should not interfere with operations. The carrying of prayer mats (sterilized) should be made mandatory. Only Islamic surgeons should be allowed, without footwear but with explosive waistcoats, in the OP.

And this is bad ... how?

I mean, if they don't turn up for their ops, they don't turn up. They're only going to give birth to more kids with birth defects anyway. They account for three per cent of the births on the NHS and - get this - 30% of the birth defects. It's this incestuous marriage for generations back into antiquity.

God, these people are so backward in every way.

BTW, how much electricity does it take to iron that bulky set of draperies?

They should charge these islamic bints if they want to wear this ridiculous get-up because they cost more money to make, more money to launder and more money to iron.

I am in favour of the gowns.
What little one can see of the Muslim females who wrap themelves in those bizarre outfits is rarely such as to invite closer inspection. They are usually about the same in circumference as they are in height, with pendulous teats and extensive facial hair.

As many as possible should be wrapped in this handy covering, which can also double as a shroud if they are unfortunate enough to be operated on by an 'ethnic' surgeon.

The garment should also be offered to all suitably fat ugly white sluts. In the unlikely event that they survive their stay in an NHS 'hospital', they should be asked to continue wearing the garment indefinitely.

Correct, of course. Except saying "a vision from hell" elevates them.

I do not claim it is bad. I suspect that such measures to introduce burkas into our country are being taken by suggesting that there are problems rather than showing any form of documented evidence.

Ah well, this story is from the venerable tabloid Daily Express. Cum granis salis...

The Inter-Faith gown should be considered a non-starter.

I believe that every resident of these islands should experience the British NHS pre-op gown, which is impossible to fasten up by oneself and inevitably leaves yer ar*e hanging outin the breeze, as it is the very essence of Britishness and, what is more, character building.

Just what these johnny foreigners need to encourage some real integration, a bit of the stiff upper lip mentality and adoption of what is a British Institution.

These Hallowe'en outfits should not be distributed because it should be against the law for anyone to cover and/or disguise their face in public.

For that reason, I don't even approve of beards or moustaches and think all Muslim women should be forced to shave theirs off.
