Girls as young as five are allowed to wear hijabs as part of their school uniform. The Islamic head covering is not usually worn until a girl reaches puberty, but a combination of weak-willed teachers and hard line Islamist influence mean that almost half of Birmingham's primary schools and many in East London now include it in their uniform! I spoke to Aisha Ali-Khan, a women's rights activist who wants the hijab banned in primary schools, about why she's worried by this news.
Is Theresa May right to say "give peace a chance" and refuse to back President Trump in any military action in North Korea? Or do we need a leader with balls, metaphorically speaking?
