Michael Gove asked about the controversial Mosque "planned" for the Olympic site in East London:

15 Jan 2007 : Parliamentary Question Tablighi Jamaat Mosque

Michael Gove: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what discussions she has had with (a) the Mayor of London and (b) Newham council on the proposed Tablighi Jamaat Mosque in East London. [113920]

Mr. Woolas: None. There is no planning application before Newham council for such a mosque.

Bearing in mind last nights Dispatches program on Channel 4 I don't thi8nk there should be any mosque building here at all.

Did you watch it?

I didn't - but it's on YouTube so I'll catch it over the next few days.

We clearly have a major problem with mosques in this country - and we're not alone. As a libertarian, I always tend to want people to be able to do what they want with their own property. Perhaps the problem would be better solved if we recognised openly that war has been declared against us and against our free society, and if we behaved accordingly, instead of sniping round the edges.

Thanks for the link, by the way, Brummie.

No problem

Yeah do make sure you watch it although I imagine nothing there will be a surprise.

I notice you've just started your blog - I'll do a reciprocal link when you've built up the content a bit.
