If Tommy Robinson really is the monster that much of the media claim he is, then the left is his Dr Frankenstein.
Almost every aspect of the Tommy Robinson phenomenon – from his positioning of himself as the teller of difficult truths to the idea that he poses a one-man threat to the social order – has been gifted to Robinson by the left.
Tommy Robinson has had to leave the home he shares with his wife and children after his address was shared on the internet.
The former EDL leader then travelled for six hours to confront the student who posted his personal details to the public. In a Facebook Live video this morning Robinson said: ‘Someone was sharing my address where my wife and kids are.
“It feels like Westminster is tumbling towards a political crisis without modern precedent,” wrote the BBC’s Ben Wright on November 27. On July 23, 2016, British subjects voted to leave the EU; on December 11, the House of Commons will decide whether or not to approve the horrible deal that Prime Minister Theresa May has struck with the EU honchos and that, her claims to the contrary, comes nowhere close to returning full independence to the UK. If, as seems likely at the moment, the MPs turn down May’s deal, it’s not clear what will happen next, even though, one way or the other, Britain’s EU membership is scheduled to expire on March 29 of next year.
Nigel Farage has quit Ukip after 25 years in protest over new leader Gerard Batten’s ‘obsession with Muslims’ and his appointment of Tommy Robinson as an adviser on ‘Muslim rape gangs’.
‘And so, with a heavy heart, and after all my years of devotion to the party, I am leaving Ukip today,’ he wrote in The Telegraph. ‘There is a huge space for a Brexit party in British politics, but it won’t be filled by Ukip.’
Speaking later on LBC, Mr Farage accused Mr Batten of ‘turning a blind eye to extremism’ and attempting to turn the party from an ‘electoral’ force into a ‘party of street activism’.
“…Why are UK Muslims taking to the streets in an event that is being organised and approved of by the Muslim Council of Britain and a handful of other organizations? They’re coming out to oppose the ‘racist’ Brexit event that Tommy Robinson has organised for December 9th in London. Labour MP and professional race-baiter and pants-wetter David Lammy is the main culprit behind the event. If you’re unfamiliar with him, he spouts the same kind of nonsense that Al Sharpton and Louis Farrakhan do. He’s like the British version of those two. What’s so dangerous about this event being given the green light by the police is that it will see Central London being brought to a standstill and will devolve into nothing more than a day and night filled with violence.”
Nigel Farage says he is “appalled” by Ukip’s decision to appoint Tommy Robinson as an adviser and has vowed to bring down its leader Gerard Batten.
The MEP for Southeast England, who headed the party when it used the anti-immigration “breaking point” poster to campaign for Brexit, claimed the involvement of the former leader of the English Defence League (EDL) was “dragging us in a shameful direction”.
He said if Ukip continued trying to turn Mr Robinson, whose real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, into a “big player in the Brexit vote” then it was “finished”.
Nigel was always soft on Islam, but I think his disdain for Tommy is based on his fear of being overshadowed by a brighter light.
Far-right leader Tommy Robinson has been appointed a ‘special adviser’ to UKIP on rape gangs and prison conditions.
Robinson, 35, who was jailed and then freed this year after allegedly jeopardising the trial of a gang of child abusers with a live Facebook video, will work as an aide of UKIP leader Gerard Batten.
Senior UKIP figures have clashed over Robinson’s potential role in the party, with ex-leader Nigel Farage warning it faced ‘total and utter marginalisation’ if it allowed the EDL founder into the movement.
British far-Right activist Tommy Robinson has not been granted a US visa to meet with Republican lawmakers in Washington this week, an organiser of the meeting said on Monday.
Robinson is the founder of the English Defence League, or EDL, which in the past has staged violent demonstrations against Islam.
He was jailed by British authorities in 2013 for using a passport in someone else’s name to travel to the United States from Britain. He was later jailed on a separate charge of contempt of court, but was released in August.
