Ebay continues sale of ‘Tommy Robinson’ autobiography

ONLINE retail firm Ebay is continuing to sell copies of “Tommy Robinson’s” books despite claiming to have removed prohibited listings from the website.

Ebay said on Tuesday that items such as T-shirts featuring images of the fascist leader, whose real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, breached its sale of offensive materials policy for those who “promote or glorify hatred, violence, racial, sexual or religious intolerance, or promote organisations with such views.”

But paperback copies of his autobiography Enemy of the State and other books are still up for bidding a day after the announcement — including copies of Mohammed’s Koran: Why Muslims Kill For Islam which has been banned by Amazon.

Amazon otherwise refused to take down merchandise in support of Mr Yaxley-Lennon, despite being accused by anti-racism campaigners of profiting from products that promote far-right extremism.

A spokesperson for Ebay said it had “removed these items and have taken enforcement action against the seller” but they were still present on the site as the Star went to print.
