Tommy Robinson should be banned from YouTube, Labour says

Tommy Robinson should be banned from YouTube “as a matter of utmost urgency”, says Labour deputy leader Tom Watson.

The EDL founder was removed from Facebook and Instagram on Tuesday for violating their policies on “organised hate” and the targetting of Muslims.

He responded by posting videos to Youtube – the only major social media platform he can still use – claiming he was the victim of censorship.

In a letter to Google chief executive Sundar Pichai on Friday, Mr Watson described Robinson – real name Stephen Yaxley Lennon – as a “violent, racist, Islamophobic campaigner”.
