PETITION TO STOP ''Face Coverings (Regulation) Bill'' FROM BECOMING A LAW

16,852 Signatures Goal: 50,000

Tory MP Philip Hollobone is trying to get the Burka banned from the streets of UK. He is trying to pass a law to ban Muslim women wearing it. The Kettering MP said: <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

''I think it's inappropriate to cover your face in public, whether it's a burka, a balaclava or anything else.

''We are never going to get along with having a fully integrated society if a substantial minority insist on concealing their identity from everyone else.''

He has previously described the burka as ''offensive'' and ''against the British way of life''

The backbencher was one of 20 MPs drawn in a ballot for the chance to get a Private Members' Bill on the statute book.
His Face Coverings (Regulation) Bill had its first reading in the Commons today, a formality which allows the legislation to be printed.
Because Mr Hollobone was only drawn 17th in the ballot, his Bill stands little chance of progress.
But he said: ''The introduction of a Private Members' Bill is the only way I can get new legislation on to the books.

SO WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO OUR FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION? THIS IS AGAINST HUMAN RIGHTS. THEY SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO BRING THIS LAW IN. PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION AND INVITE OTHERS AND THIS WILL BE FORWARDED TO THE GOVERNMENT on 31st july 2010.

    Signed because it is a nasty backdoor attempt to victimise a small group.
