Belgium Veil Debate

Everything you wanted to know about the Belgium Veil debate.

From what I saw in my travellings since the recording, the Belgian veil debate ended with the full veil being banned. Joy.

If the stars are right, the next podcast will be recorded at some point in late June. Which gives you all plenty of time to get in touch to agree, disagree, tell funny stories or send us cake. 😉

Until next time!
