Would a burqa ban work?

Dear reader, our blog has moved to a new address.

Do come on over (and change your bookmarks accordingly): rationalist.org.uk

Further to my previous post on the passage of the French burqa ban, aside from all the moral and political arguments for and against such bans, there is the simple issue of whether they would ever actually work. How do you enforce a ban on face coverings? Unsurprisingly, Muslims in France have already begun thinking of ways around the ban, and the woman in this video seems to think she's found one potential loophole. Could the French law stop people wearing medical masks in public?
