Nominally it is to ensure public spaces provided by government are religion-neutral.
As I wrote there also are hygiene reasons and restrictions that apply to everyone. If all these rules are relaxed then burkini could be accepted I guess.

Formally, the UK is a theocracy!

It has a state religion and the Monarch is the head of the religion. In principle, the Monarch has power over the elected government.

In practice, of course, it is nothing but.

The Monarch is a figurehead with immense influence and almost no practical power. The main power, AIUI, is that the armed forces swear loyalty to the Monarch and not to the government. I have heard it said, in all seriousness, by several middle-ranking soldiers, that if the government underwent a violent coup. or became too extreme in its activities, the army would intervene in the name of the Queen.

I want to go to France and wear a Burkini and a Catholic cross on a chain. Then watch as all heads explode in confusion.

Would I not be "religiously neutral", since I express both religions? What do you mean there are more than two? Those folks with the colanders on their heads don't make a real religion.

The tenet of our belief is that after death the soul flies out of the body and gets stuck on the garage roof.

You are just trying to trick your way into keeping your soul out of hell. I can't say I know god very well, but I imagine she would see right through that ploy.

What are everyone's thoughts on ectogenesis?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ectogenesis

Instead of killing the fetus, you would let it gestate in an artificial womb. Some are saying this could settle the abortion debate once and for all.

Many doctors are refusing to prescribe drugs to women of child-bearing age due to fear of prosecution:

I know person with arthritis, now beyond child-bearing years, who could have been denied their medication since they were first diagnosed as a teen.

And more unwanted children are dumped into the adoption/foster care system. I don't think it settles anything.
