The rumour that never happened
The rumour was kicked off by Robinson wrote on Twitter: “News coming in of a yr 7 school girl being gang raped in school toilets? By Muslims ! It's all being kept hush hush? School in Luton.”
Questioned about it, he simply said that the news came “from a good source . If its defo true Luton needs to brace itself.” He later said he had it “confirmed.”
As EDL supporters joined in the outrage, Kevin Carroll joined in too.
They scoured local media, spoke to teachers and parents at local schools and rang every contact they could think of, and no-one had any evidence that this incident took place.
Police even confirm the story was untrue
According to the EDL leaders, the incident took place on school premises but no such incident was ever logged by the local police. Police would have been informed if this incident was true but Bedfordshire Police confirmed themselves that there was no truth in the story.
Conclusion - The rumour was made up
EDL leaders Robinson and Carroll have been exposed as deliberately stirring up hatred on a false rumour, and making the whole thing up.
Hundreds of people have called for Bedfordshire Police to investigate the pair and prosecute them for inciting racial hatred.
