Rejected petition Ban Qatar from Hosting 2022 World Cup

More details

Qatar is a country where it is illegal to be homosexual or drink in public. It is also a country that has almost no football heritage and which forces Migrant workers who make up 94% of Qatar's workforce.
I would like the government to demand that the World cup is held in a more suitable host nation and/or the resignation of Sepp Blatter. If this were not bad enough the Henry Jackson society have reported that Qatar funds Hamas by upto $250m dollars a year. That is state terrorism, and it isn't what a World cup host nation should do.
