Watching When Tommy Met Mo — a BBC documentary covering ex-EDL leader Tommy Robinson’s engagement with Muslim commentator Mo Ansar — last night, Scrapbook couldn’t help laughing at Robinson’s pathetic attempts to maintain that his ‘animal rights’ stance against Halal meat is anything other than a proxy for Islamophobia.
Having brokered a discussion between Ansar and EDL activists in Luton, Robinson is invited to break the Ramadan fast with Ansar:
Ansar: “I think it’s a nice sign that we are able to come together to share me breaking the fast if that’s okay with you.”
Robinson: “I would love to break the fast with you ‘cos I am actually starving but if we could go to somewhere down the road that done Halal and non-Halal the it’d be more suitable for me.”
Was Nando’s not open? Robinson brags about eating chicken there on Twitter …
Well Al-Shabab i will be in nandos in town today at 12 o'clock ! Whole chicken large chips, oh and hallumi cheese.

What a grade-A muppet.
