BBC News – Austrian driver’s religious headgear strains credulity

  1. Yes, although my feeling was that – in the spirit of “now fine him for not wearing his sword to the exam” – the authorities’ next obvious move should be to wait until he’s in a position to have his photo ID checked, and if he isn’t wearing the colander at that point, to detain him for questioning on the grounds that he looks suspiciously unlike his photo.
