Brits Force Everyone Into 'Burkinis'

In a weird echo of the Victorian era, swimmers are required, during special Muslim sessions at public pools across the UK, to wear sharia-acceptable bathing attire:
Under the rules, swimmers – including non-Muslims – are barred from entering the pool in normal swimming attire.

Instead they are told that they must comply with the "modest" code of dress required by Islamic custom, with women covered from the neck to the ankles and men, who swim separately, covered from the navel to the knees.
This is where a show of civil disobedience would be useful. That is, of course, if the British Bulldog hasn't been neutered yet.
