Waaah! Gutted! Fundamentalist Girl Loses Fight over Islamic Dress

Attention seeking little fundie-ho Shabina Begum loses her battle to wear the Jiljab, which is a stricter version of her schools Islamic dress code. The school's Islamic dress code that was verified with the Muslim community & local clerics.

Worringly the Telegraph ends on this ominous note;
Miss Begum said she was "saddened and disappointed" by the decision, and would discuss with her lawyers - including Cherie Booth QC - whether to take the case to the European Court of Human Rights.
That's the Prime Ministers left-wing wife folks. Imagine Tony Blairs wife arguing the case for extremist Islamic dress codes in a dhimmi-whipped European Court of Human Rights? The mind boggles.

What I found most interesting was that according to the school's laywer, Begum wore the jilbab because her brother would not let her attend school otherwise.
