Tube worker suspended over racist taunts.

A tube worker who posted racist and anti-muslim messages on Facebook has been suspended from his job.
In a series of posts, engineer Martin Aitken insulted Muslims, Asians and disabled people. He was caught by the Standard after a tip-off, and when confronted said:” Oh for f**k’s sake, it’s going to jeopardise my job.”
Today, a spokeman for Transport for London said:“TfL expects its agency contractors to adhere to the highest possible standatds, and will not tolerate bigoted and abusive behaviour from anyone working from us.”
“As soon as the content of these posts was brought to our attention on Monday, February 18, Mr Aitken was suspended from duty. The agency he was engaged through is undertaking its own investigation.”
Mr Aitkem who joined London Underground this year, began posting the messages in 2010. One from March 30 that year reads:“did you know that in the time it takes to clap your hands, a Pakistani will die somewhere in the world. All together now –“If you are happy and you know it”.
On February 7, this year, he wrote:“I just saw a muslim with 3 lions on his shirt. I f***ing love Longleat Safari Park”.
This was followed a day later by:“Muslims of Britain. If you obeyed the law, accepted our values, integrated in society, abandoned terrorism, spole English in public, made more of an effort with personal hygiene, charged the same prices in your shops as the rest of the retailers, didn’t burn poppies ... then we wouldn’t hate you as much!”
This week, Mr Aitken, who commutes to London weekly from Exeter, apologised for the “stupid” comments and said he had shut his Facebook account.
He said:“I was being stupid. I work at London Underground and there are a lotof people from different walks of life, and I get on well with all of them. My best mate is Jamaican”.

he posted this before, but then it was a "Tune worker" suspended.

the man isn't a racist, he has black mates, it is ISLAM and islamic misbehaviour he dislikes. That isn't racism, ask any African or Indian who has been mistreated by moslems.

Religious hatred is akin to racism, as far as the courts are concerned.
In any case, making such offensive comments on social media is disgusting and should be severely punished.

AS for the "my best mate is jamaican", that' the kinf of pathetic excuse most racists use when tackled about their behaviour. Just like if having a black friend is a licence to insult anyone.

People like you who cannot tolerate other races and religions are the cancer of our society. People like you who stir up reeligious hatred should be hounded, sacked from their job, denounced publicly, expelled from their houses and put in jail. That's what I think of scums like you!

Most black people I have met dislike Islam , and so do Indians. Religion is NOT race. But nice to see that you think that moslems should be hounded and sacked, if they show intolerance to us "infidels"

Don't hide behind blacks and Indians to spread your religious hatred. Your attitude is mostly a white supremacist mentality, an "little Englander" syndrome that cannot cope with changes in our society, so directs its anger towards a religious group.

Your lot was against Jews beforee, then against blacks, then against Asians. We always have in Britain a fringe of right wing scums like you that cannot adapt to changes.

Some blacks are Muslim in fact! And the majority of blacks and Asians are tolerant and happy with the cultural mixture in this country; so is the large majority of whites!

It's only pathetic right wing extremists like you who can leave it alone.

The other day I was talking to someone from a certain African country, who gave me an absolutely terrifying account of when he and his family had to flee for their lives from muslims. They were very lucky to get away. Their neighbours, and the rest of his family were all butchered on the orders of your favourite paedophile prophet.

Muslims were once a minority in that country, and he once thought they were as peaceful as Christians. They're now a majority, simply because most people no longer have a choice.

Don't worry about what that country's name was. It's now 'officially' part of a larger Islamic country, and you probably think that larger Islamic country has every right to claim it and enforce that evil religion onto the people there.

Non Islamic Europeans will have a similar fight on their hands one day, and you'll probably still be slandering anyone who defies that abomination of a religion.

????????
R you afraid to give your point of view or opinion, and this the reason that you are posting outer universe language. Or is your above posting computer or phone txt speak????.

Not all viewers, or posters, are up to date, or have been previously aquianted with your I assume rascist space language, or phone txt, or computer speak.
Please do not be so selfish or cowardly, sometimes you should put others before your obivious fears and selfishnesses, to share.
On second thoughts that may be impossible as you are an out, and out full wack cowardly rascist, according to some of your previous slightly readable offensive postings.

"my lot"??? I know SOME blacks are moslems, you imbecile, but most slavery in Africa was and IS done by islamic peoples. I was talking about non-islamic blacks. Just try ASKING this large majority you claim to speak for.

ps the word "SCUM" does not carry a plural.
