remove "lee rigby deserved it" facebook group and have charges of insighting racial hatred brought against the posts on it
This is offensive to Lee Rigby's family. The posts on it are offensive to the British people and their armed forces.
This e-petition has been rejected with the following reason given:
E-petitions cannot be used to request action on issues that are outside the responsibility of the government. This includes:
- party political material
- commercial endorsements including the promotion of any product, service or publication
- issues that are dealt with by devolved bodies, eg The Scottish Parliament
- correspondence on personal issues
E-petitions cannot be used for freedom of information requests.
The following explanatory notes have been added:
the Government cannot interfere with offensive content on the internet if it is not actually illegal. And there are laws already about inciting racial hatred. However, this is somthing the Government is monitoring closely.
