BA cross row provokes Widdecombe to fury

The BBC reports that:

British Airways has asked a Christian member of staff to conceal her cross necklace because it contravenes the company's uniform policy. But has it added to a sense of unease among Christians?

Not with me. I see that Ann Widdecombe is up in arms about it, talking about Christians "being persecuted". But BA staff are allowed to wear such items under their clothing so I don't see what the fuss is about.

It will be interesting to see what my multinominous correspondent in Sheffield thinks about this.
