'F*** off back to your own country': Woman CLEARED of racism after Tube rant


A commuter who told an Asian man to "f*** off back to your own country" in a vile rant on the London Tube has been cleared of racism. SCROLL DOWN FOR VIDEO

Accountant Claire Moloney was arrested on suspicion of racially aggravated assault after the attack on an unidentified man, which was uploaded on YouTube in November 2010.

According to the Evening Standard, the 40-year-old walked free from court after a jury of five men and seven women cleared her of using racially aggravated words to cause harassment.

Moloney sobbed and claimed: "I'm not a racist in any shape or form. I agree the language is horrific and I am mortified.

"I was insulted and I lost it and I ranted; I was arguing my case. I was in a rage, I lost control and I was ranting but he was goading me."

In the video, the married mum-of-two, from Dagenham, said: "I f****** respect people in their countries, f*** you c***.

"You come in this country, you want to f****** have everything on a plate.

"F*** off to your own country if your country is so good, you c***."

She claims the man had made offensive comments towards her.

The Docklands & East London Advertiser reports that prosecutor Christopher Draycott said: "After initially arguing back, he is reduced to saying, 'alright, I agree with you, I will go home'.

"It is not a crime merely to swear in public, the words and behaviour must also cause the other person harassment, alarm or distress. Quite clearly these words would cause harassment, alarm or distress.

"This incident was racially motivated and was to put to him because of his membership of a particular racial group."

Neither the man in the video or any other passengers reported the incident, which is believed to have taken place on a District line train between Stepney Green and Mile End station. Moloney was only arrested in April 2013 after the video went viral.
