Tommy Robinson, the founder of the English Defence League, got more than he bargained for when he started the Twitter hashtage #creepingsharia, writes Matt Warman
The Luton-based politician, real name Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, wrongly identified the Taj Mahal mausoleum as a mosque when it was used on the Twitter homepage on Sunday night. He tweeted “welcome to twitter homepage has a picture of a mosque. what a joke #creepingsharia”.
Although the original tweet was “favourited” a number of times and retweeted more than 50, the overwhelming reaction of the social network was to mock the idea. By Monday evening, #creepingsharia was still attracting widespread derision.
