I wonder if that same UK city issues permits for

held in the privacy of a restroom?

It would be interesting to survey the responses
received by persons contacting various government
offices such as this. Some could pose as Christians,
complaining about public breastfeeding, and some,
posing as Muslims, could do the same. Do you
suppose there would be a difference in the
responses received?

Really stupid.
