I'll go further than the example of caning; in some countries, the punishment of theft is cutting the hands off. That can't be allowed here, cuz it's too extreme.

I'd also say that if you went to Singapore and broke their rules, you'd be expected to take the punishment and pay the price for not respecting their culture. I still don't understand why this attitude seems to be a one way street for some people. Come to the UK; respect OUR culture, a part of which is NOT covering up your face.
