Army investigates Tommy Robinson photo with soldiers

The Army is investigating after former English Defence League leader Tommy Robinson posted a photo of himself with a group of young soldiers.

Mr Robinson also put a video of the scene on Facebook, in which the men could be heard cheering and shouting his name.

The Army said it was aware of the posts and “investigating the circumstances”.

A spokeswoman said: “Far-right ideology is completely at odds with the values and ethos of the armed forces.”

She added: “The armed forces have robust measures in place to ensure those exhibiting extremist views are neither tolerated nor permitted to serve.”

“No “extremist views ” permitted? So why are the British armed forces actively recruiting Muslims?
