Taking liberties

‘There, I’ve taken it off, better?’

In Cannes, France, a woman was forced to disrobe on the beach as part of the temporary ‘burkini ban’ preventing ostentatious religious dress. France has been victim of a terrible deluge of Islamic terrorist attacks, but even so, to become more like the aggressor – introducing morality police dictating what woman should wear – is not to win against them.

Good grief

  

  Grief-shaming is the latest social media trend, after Facebook made it easy for users to change their profile pics to be tricoloured in sympathy with the 140 murdered victims of the Islamic State’s  terrorist attacks in Paris.
