    As an ironic sidebar to the veil story, in the UK many Muslim bus drivers refuse to let dogs on board, even guide dogs for the blind! This is contrary to the Disability discrimination act, & leaves blind people stuck on the streets.

    One wag on the comments suggested the dogs should wear burkhas!:biggrin1::wink:

    We have the same problem in the US and not only with just taxi drivers ….. The Feds had to point out that our “Laws” are to be followed and if you don’t agree with the Service Dogs one, find a new line of work.
