EDL leader Tommy Robinson has been accused of abusing a Muslim customer assistant in Selfridges in a dispute which led to the member of staff being suspended and Robinson being treated to a free meal in a champagne bar.
Robinson posted a mobile phone video of the staffer refusing to serve him and a friend. But the man’s trade union, Usdaw, issued a statement suggesting abuse from the pair which was not caught on camera.
“Our member strongly maintains that he only refused to serve because of the abuse being directed at him by the customer and he did not swear in the exchange.”
The member of staff has since been reinstated.
Today a Muslim in Selfridges told my mate to fuck off and refused to serve him simply cos he was with me http://t.co/5liBzvZOP8
