A new Petition needed to be signed

#1
Ken Livingstone is apparently planning to use tax payer's money to build anenormous mosquecosting an estimated £100M in the docklands. Wouldn't it be better to spend the money on a new hospital or improvedtransport facilities. anything but such a scheme as this: The mosque will be BIGGER THAN ST PAUL'S!!! The plan is for the mosque to be so big so that people flying in from allover the world for the 2012 Olympics will see it as the biggest landmark inLondon , bigger than St Pauls, Westminster Abbey orWembley Stadium. The vote so far is 56% in favour. It looks like the Muslim community in theUK is casting its vote in droves, and as usual the British are burying theirheads in the sand.... It is an undemocratic use of British Tax payers money, especially when ourChurches that are 100's of years old get no government funding to keep theirstructures standing, and we are supposedly a Christian nation. To vote to 'Scrap the 'Mega-Mosque' please sign the official Governmentpetition in the link below.

This subject has been raised before on another thread - the petition is only open until 18 July, however the govt has already responded
UK Government said:
The e–petition asking the Prime Minister to ‘Abolish plans to build a £100 million mega Mosque’ is still ongoing. This is a response from the Government in advance of the closing date.

Under planning legislation, local planning authorities are responsible for the day to day control of development in their area. In doing so they are required to take into account all material considerations including the views of interested persons and particularly local communities.

With respect to the proposal associated with a site near the Olympic development in Newham, we understand from Newham Council that there is no current planning permission or application for a mosque and Newham Council do not expect a planning application in the near future.

The Government believes that where controversial issues such as this arise, all involved should ensure that discussions are conducted in a manner that respects the views of all sections of our communities and in a way that does not raise tensions in local areas.
