article imageEDL associate refused service, told to 'f*ck off' by Selfridges

By Richard Milnes     Sep 17, 2013 in Odd News
In an appalling lack of customer service, a friend of English Defence League leader, Tommy Robinson was refused service and allegedly told to f*ck off by an employee of Selfridges department store.
A video has gone viral (with over 70,000 views so far) that is believed to have been recorded by Tommy Robinson himself showing a store assistant at Selfridges refusing to serve both himself and also his friend.
The dialogue goes as follows:
Tommy Robinson: “So you won’t serve me…”
Selfridges shop assistant: “I’m not serving you.”
TR: “You won’t serve me because…”
S: “I’m not serving you.”
TR: “So you won’t serve my friend because he’s friends with me?”
S: “Yeah, I’m not serving you.”
TR: “So you won’t serve my friend because he’s friends with me and I’m in the EDL? That’s what you’re saying?”
S: “Listen you can put me on the camera all you want mate, but I’m not serving you, that’s what I’m saying to you.”
TR: “I’ve come in here, I’ve come in here, I’ve come into this shop…”
Friend of TR: “I’ve come over to buy…”
TR: “He’s nothing to do with me. I’ve just gone and brought stuff over there.”
“He’s come in here and he’s told him to fuck off and he won’t serve him.”
Two other shop assistants then appear to be speaking rationally and saying something about calling the manager.
A security guard then comes along and tells Tommy Robinson to put his camera away and stop recording.
Selfridges Department store does not support actions of its rogue employee
In a statement Selfridges told the Huffington Post UK, "We pride ourselves on making everyone welcome and endeavour to provide world-class customer service at all times.
"We are therefore very disappointed at the incident which occurred this morning.
"We are taking the matter very seriously and are currently investigating it."
The store assistant is still suspended, pending further investigations.
The Times confirmed that both Tommy Robinson and his friend were offered a complimentary three-course meal after the incident.
