If i went to a muslim country I wouldn't walk about with my chest showing and my gf wouldn't wear a bikini top and shorts in the street as we both know this would be disrespectful. However in the UK people from other countries don't seem to abide by our traditions and customs - they just dress and act as they would in their own country. Whats your opinion?

I dont see why we make such a big deal over trivial issues as what people wear - I am more concerned about why our trains are never on time and why students have to pay thousands for university education!

Thats fair enough but the veil is a security issue and should be banned. I believe students should be made to pay for their education but only when they have a job and can afford to pay it back. pretty much like the system now.

Yes, you should follow what the tradition of a particular country is. That is a basic decorum of showing mutual respect. Yes, in UK too people should be following the local rules. That is the basic minimum. The birts should not be punished for being generous to the immigrants for letting them come in and enjoy a better life. Happy mylotting:)
