Men in KKK hood, helmet and burqa walk into Parliament...

THREE men walk into Parliament, one dressed in a KKK hood, another as a bikie and a third in a burqa, so which is allowed in?

The stunt from activist group "Faceless" ran the experiment in person at Parliament House in Canberra one week after the government dumped a rule to separate burqa wearers from others if they visited Parliament.

The group is pushing to have all facial coverings banned.

As they went through security, members of the Canberra press gallery reported they were asked to identify themselves.

"It's fantastic that we were not allowed in," one of them told a journalist.

Another man wearing a burqa was reportedly allowed to enter the building.
