A York mosque dealt with a potentially volatile situation after reports that it was going to be the focus of a demonstration organised by a far-right street protest movement - by inviting those taking part in the protest in for tea and biscuits.
Around half a dozen people arrived for the protest, promoted online by supporters of the EDL. A St George's flag was nailed to the wooden fence in front of the mosque.
However, after members of the group accepted an invitation into the mosque, tensions were rapidly defused over tea and plates of custard creams, followed by an impromptu game of football.
York: showing us how it's done. I wonder if it was Yorkshire tea?
If you have the good fortune not to know about the EDL, they are the "English Defence League" who are a bunch of right wing, bigoted pillocks (yes, between EDL, UKIP and the BNP, we do have a lot of them luckily, we also have a lot of tea...).
I personally favour the English Disco Lovers who are a pro-disco, pro-equality group to counter them
