Algerian man has been denied French nationality

An Algerian man has been denied French nationality because of his sexist attitudes towards women.

The man's application was refused because "his idea of sexual equality is not that of the republic", according to a high-ranking official quoted by French radio station Europe 1.

The man, who has not been identified, is married to a Frenchwoman, but does not allow her to leave the family home freely, it was claimed.

The French constitution states that the government can refuse nationality or strip nationality for a "lack of integration".

A spokesman for the interior minister, Claude Guéant, told the Guardian that the man had failed to accept the French way of life.

"His behaviour showed a lack of assimilation into the French community; it was incompatible with the values of the French republic, notably in respect to the values of the equality of men and women.".....

Hahaha! I have to say that I agree with this policy but disagree with the one about ending the right to dual nationality!
