Tommy Robinson laughs about going into a multifaith room and having a bacon cheeseburger as he’s stopped by police at the roadside.
Police can be heard saying they’re simply trying to understand the purpose of Mr Robinson and his group’s travel amid Covid-19 restrictions – and he insists he is a journalist and they are travelling to do essential work.
But Mr Robinson, whose real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, makes light of the incident, questioning why they have been stopped.
“I wonder if this is to do with the double bacon cheeseburger in the services,” Mr Robinson laughs.
“Or the multifaith room,” he adds.
He continues: “Multifaith room stitch up. Imagine you went to court for going in a f***ing multifaith room and having a burger.”
He then role played a conversation between two people.
“What you in here for mate?
“GBH Section 18. What you in here for?
“I had a burger in a multifaith room didn’t I.
“How long you in here for mate?
“I’m probably doing double the time he’s doing.”
Mr Robinson seems to find his comments hilarious and roars with laughter, adding: “I sat on the prayer mat though, I got an extra year for that.”
He also says, while laughing: “How many points you got? I’ve got 18.”
“I don’t pay insurance,” he also says, appearing to be joking.
Police officers take his details and appear to be speaking to another couple of people as well by the roadside.
The incident has been recorded and uploaded on a YouTube channel called Live Being Tommy Robinson on May 25.
In the footage, police ask him where he’s working and he tells them he’s a journalist.
They ask him why he’s travelling and why he hasn’t driven by himself.
He tells them he’s lazy and that he has 18 points on his licence.
Mr Robinson questions police as to why his group has been stopped since ‘they’re not suspected of a crime’.
A police officer says she’s just trying to understand if their travel is essential.
“We want to know why you’ve got a van full of people,” she says.
Mr Robinson insists his work is essential.
It is unclear exactly where and when the incident took place but Mr Robinson says they are in Barrow.
