I would just like to congratulate Jack Straw on speaking out on a subject that I am sure most of the country agree with.

I have never really agreed much with what he has said, but this time I am 100 per cent behind him, and also very surprised on the reaction of a few Muslims.

He has asked for woman to take veils off, not change their religion, it's a perfectly normal request to make.

And as for the death threats he has reportedly received, I hope they catch the fanatics and lock them up for the next 100 years. This is Britain and free speech will always be a part of us and no one will ever change the way we are. Once again, I take my hat off to Jack Straw for a sensible request, what a load of fuss about nothing.
