Former English Defence League (EDL) leader Tommy Robinson has been accused by police of inciting racial hatred after wearing an anti-Islamic State (Isis) shirt and holding an England flag with the words “F**k Isis” printed on the front, his lawyer has claimed.
Robinson had managed to escape being banned from travelling to France to watch England play in the Euro 2016 tournament after police officers arrived at his home near Luton when he’d already left the country.
The 33-year-old was pictured days later in Franceholding an England flag with the words “F**k Isis” and wearing a shirt showing a cartoon of an England fan urinating on the Black Banner flag adopted by Islamic State (Daesh).
On his return to the UK, Bedfordshire Police appeared committed to pursuing the banning order and served him with the application.
