What appears to have happened is that Lennon has gone, with his children in tow, to a restaurant in the Milton Keynes area, entered the premises, sat at a table, and then discovered that his presence was not welcome. The management of the establishment, as is their right, declined to serve his party and asked him to leave. Cue meltdown.
“I’ve gone to Milton Keynes, with my children, to have dinner at a new restaurant. I’ve gone in, I’ve sat down, and then I’ve been told I need to leave. They can’t give me an answer, just who I am … d’you know what I found, it’s a black-owned business”. But he’s not racist.
There was more. “D’you know how many curry houses I go into? I’m about to walk into another Muslim-owned business now [no comment] … I have never once, and I’ve [eaten] in so many Muslim-owned businesses, I’ve never once, all the things I’ve said about Islam, all the differences of opinion I have … every one I go into, they’re nothing but pleasant, nothing but polite … we talk, yeah? We talk”. And yet more.
“So what I’m shocked at, is that the biggest snowflakes in Milton Keynes …can’t handle someone having a different opinion”. He said he just went in and sat down. Did something else happen? But back to the rant. “And they need to feel comfortable, apparently - the staff don’t feel comfortable”. Sounds like something else did happen.
“Fucking pathetic! I’m going to share it with you … share the name of the restaurant. I’ll leave it my review, you can leave it yours … you tell me in the comments what you think I should do about that restaurant. D’you think all of us should go to that restaurant? D’you think we should book tables at that restaurant? D’you think I should tolerate this continued discrimination? Six banks have closed me down. I’m not allowed a bank account”.
Cue the nanoviolin: Lennon’s past behaviour, and his ever-lengthening criminal record, may have something to do with that. Do go on. “What hotel was it in Brent Cross? Got kicked out of a hotel, just went in, you’re not allowed to stay here … If everyone does [it] I’m not allowed to eat any more, can’t go shops, can’t go supermarkets”.
“None of them can give me an answer. Some facey little woman in there, nothing to say but be rude … what do I want? Just come to get some chicken and chips, you weirdo, I just want some food for my kids. I don’t want to be discriminated against ‘cos I have a different opinion to you”. So he’s going to start a hate campaign against the restaurant.
Stephen Lennon should have thought about that before he went on his intimidation spree. Before he broke the law (several times). Before he got himself that criminal record. Also, I have one comment to make on his continuing efforts to play the victim: the acting ain’t making it. Plus he needs to come clean on exactly what happened at that MK eatery.
Actions have consequences. Stephen Lennon is discovering that. But maybe too late.
