That's a surprise. I would have expected Mr Farage to defend the right of British employers to establish dress codes without intrusion from the continent.

I doubt they would ban the cross here in Iceland, although we have adopted part of EU law against our will. The cross has been part of the culture since the year 1000AD to be exact. The British should get the hell out of this EU club, like our president said during a meeting with Brussels people. It is obvious what Brussel aims to do now, in its hope to gain eternal power.

Human rights don't cater for the British (considering we thought it up in the first place).

My son who had a Saturday job in early 1980s, while still at school, was told not to wear his poppy by the manager of a well known supermarket. At the time, my son was an air cadet. He stood his ground and told the manager that he would not comply, and carried on wearing it - going on to serve 12 years in the R.A.F and going through the first Gulf war. I am pleased that a 16 year old lad showed what the British people hold dear - and that we will not be intimidated or enslaved. We shall carry on living in freedom.

Like Martin, I'm confused. This strikes me as quite a socialist stance from a man/party I support for a libertarian attitude. As much as I agree that the courts shouldn't support a ban, I get the impression that Farage supports state intervention to protect the right to wear what you want to work.

I find this all absolutely appaling. How anyone could take offence to a cross and chain is just bewildering? I am not a deeply religious person but do have my own beliefs, the main one being that all people should be treated equally.
How could it even be considered that Christians could be banned from wearing a small symbol around their necks when other religions show much more prominent signs of their faith with active encouragement? For example, the Turban or the Burkah. Or are these symbols next on the attack list?

If the cross is banned at work, then companies who follow this ruling should not fly the Union Flag - as this is a Christian religious symbol too.
We say get a cross tattoo in the same place where it can be seen or get a badge sown on to your collar. Join our campaign and pass the word on.
Confusion why? Dress code is not the issue. Freedom of expression and speech of the individual versus the state or corporacy is. I believe Nigel Farrage is the straightest talking, no nonsense, thankfully clear and concise in both his frequently blunt presentation of actual facts. He is non-PC (not gagged) and is the most inspiring politician I have witnessed in the 50 plus years of my life.
I hope he and his party continue to grow in strength, if only to break the one-party politicians (they, them and theirs with the three alleged leaders). Farage and his party can reclaim and defend this once great nation's autonomy and freedom for our granchildren, just as my parents did last time an unelected force tried to invade and rule us. Wake up UK before it's all gone
No I am not a member of UKIP. Yet. Lump it or like it, Heath lied and stole my fathers and my vote on the EEC. No one has ever voted for the EU, it's grown like a cancer

Just a quick thought, if the expression to wear a cross where it can be seen is allowed. What about a Muslim woman being allowed to wear a hajib? Both may be an expression of faith but one may be used as a disguise to hide behind as well.
Jim - USA
Well, I for one will wear my cross with pride and if that doesn't work - then i will have a tattoo of the cross on both my hands. Then let the government tell me to hide my cross. i will never take off or hide my cross for any government or EU laws. I am not ashamed of being a Christian.
Billy - Scunthorpe
They should ban religions because they are very bad for humans.

I am a Christian, but I do not wear a cross, However, if such persecution continues - I shall break my rule and wear a small, discreet, but noticeable cross. David Cameron doesn't not seem to know the right thing to do on this and many other issues.
Dr Donald Stevens - Bournemouth
It is said that in the last days, Christ's followers would be persecuted and punished for displaying their support for him. So it is happening now. At least we know therefore what is to come and government is in for one heck of a shock when the Last Trump sounds.
