Abolish plans to build a £100 million mega Mosque

Discussion in 'The ARRSE Hole' started by Rugbymaid, Jul 18, 2007.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. If you're interested in signing here is the link, deadline is today.

    http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/ScrapMegaMosque/#detail

    We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to Abolish plans to build a £100 million mega Mosque. More details

    Deadline to sign up by: 18 July 2007 – Signatures: 270,962

    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.

    Done to death.
     
  3. Don't shoot 8O the messanger I only found out today! You can choose to ignore it or sign it, up to you. :wink:
     
  4. Clearly you also did not bother to read the government reply which points out the whole exercise is pointless.
     
  5. "Mega-Mosque" sounds like some type of Muslim religious superstore

    In extra big letters for the obviously terminally dense.
     
  7. Still reading ALL the links that come with it, like I said only found out today, and YOU can IGNORE it if you wish :)
     
  8. To be fair, whilst this is a bit of a hoax, there have been plans for a mosque in the area (which I know) for some time, albeit not nec a £100m mega-mosque for aspiring jihadi-wadis.

    So a grain of truth in the story, but the petition is still coc.
     
  9. Jesus Christ almighty.

    Are you that thick? It's a bloody hoax and you still "want people to ignore it if they wish"

    Do you understand it is a hoax?

    The organisation associated with the prtition have said "You what????" and of the person that originated the petition, no trace can be found?
     
  10. Clearly the petition worked then :wink:

    It has also been posted on here ad nauseum and thoroughly debunked ad nauseum. You could at least try a search first before posting.

    Or even, Heaven forfend, read the bloody Government response!
     
  12. Can someone more patient than me, kindly explain to Rugbymaid what is wrong with this picture?

    I don't have the patience.
     
  13. Not quite true: it was started by one Jill Barham, on a BNP-linked blog called englishrose.blogspot.com, which has since been closed down for stirring racial hatred.

    edit: 'she'/they have moved it here: http://english-rose-uk.blogspot.com/

    The Mayor wishes to make it absolutely clear that these reports are entirely untrue. There are not now, and have never been, any plans by the Mayor or Greater London Authority to spend any public money on such a mosque. Indeed, it would be illegal for the Mayor of London to do so. Suggestions of a link between plans for a mosque and the 2012 Olympic Games are equally untrue, as are suggestions of the enormous size of any planned mosque.


    Done.
