Waterstones will remove from its shelves all books written by the infamous conspiracy theorist David Icke after one of his titles was pictured at a branch in Southport.
A copy of his 2017 book Everything You Wanted to Know But Have Never Been Told was spotted on Tuesday displayed in a section marked “alternative histories and conspiracies”.
The paperback was earlier today available to order on the bookseller’s e-commerce platform at £11.99, together with his 2019 book The Trigger: The Lie That Changed the World, available for £20.
Icke previously claimed the world is run by reptiles and has faced accusations of antisemitism.
A spokesperson for Waterstones told Jewish News: “Most of the selection is done at a local, shop-floor level. We will look into this immediately to ensure any stock is removed from sale.”
