Picture of the Week: Bins and burkas

Burkas and bin bags make for interesting companions


Our Picture of the Week is certainly nothing but controversial.


The image of a burka clad woman and her daughter alongside two bin bags has gone viral on Facebook


Highlighting the debate about where it is acceptable to wear such garments, the image shows a Muslim women on a British housing estate wearing a black burka alongside a child in similar garb. On either side of them are two bin bags.


Some will take great offence at the title: “I told her she had three beautiful children, and she got upset” but we take this for what it is and share it as our Picture of the Week.

    1. Ahmed El-Ali is surely a Muslim like me. He should know better but given he plays around with makeup according to his Twitter, he’s hardly a man who’ll get the prize that his brothers believe will come to them. There’ll be no seven virgins for El-Ali. Mind you, fellow Northern crone William Roache, it seems, has been more than making up for him.

      • I remember as a child, reading the story of Ali Baba and the forty thieves over and over again. Ali Baba is a poor woodcutter who discovers the secret of a thieves’ den, entered with the phrase “Open Sesame”. The thieves learn this, and try to kill Ali Baba. But Ali Baba’s faithful slave-girl foils their plots; Ali Baba gives his son to her in marriage and keeps the secret of the treasure. Esra Siebra was so intrigued with the story, he went to see it on the silver screen, he always seems to go over the top.
        Esra has not yet had the pleasure of one virgin, never mind seven virgins. Make-up would not have made the slightest difference to his complexion, thus he wasn’t bothered. It is all starting to make sense, we live and learn.

    2. Funny as hell. The burka is a relic, oppressive to women and should go! And by the way, there is no afterlife. There are no virgins waiting for you. And if you’d ever been with a virgin (I have been with two), there is nothing special about it. They’re boring and inexperienced. Give me a slutty 40 year old woman anytime!
