Tea and biccies win the day

When half a dozen English Defence League supporters turned up to protest outside a small mosque in Bull Lane, York, they were greeted by around one hundred worshippers who offered them tea and biccies and invited them inside for a game of football.

Fears over a demonstration and possible confrontation grew after Yorkshire EDL Scarborough Division posted a message on its Facebook page calling for supporters to gather outside the mosque. Six protesters answered the call but were met with conversation and tea and biscuits rather than anger or hostility.

There’s hope yet.
