Far-right ‘politician’ is jailed – with hilarious consequences

Apparently there’s a person called Tommy Robinson who belongs to a political organisation that is even more right-wing than Theresa May’s Conservative Party.

It’s called the English Defence League, which is amusing because, in defence of English law, he has just been jailed for 13 months.

For reasons that are beyond the rest of us, he took video of a court case, despite knowing that filming of court proceedings is illegal.

Now he is in prison for contempt of court, the sentence lasting 13 months.

But it’s good to know his supporters are standing by him:


It’s true – they’re never short of gammon at an EDL meeting.

5 Thoughts to “Far-right ‘politician’ is jailed – with hilarious consequences”

    yes just needs a few that are responsible for self harm and suicide to join him now

  2. OK, as a socialist and in defence of the truth I need to say this is untruthful and biased. Robinson was arrested for breach of the peace livestreaming OUTSIDE the court – for which he received a 13 month sentence. 13 months!
    There was an immediate press blackout ordered.
    Who was he live-streaming? An group accused of grooming young girls going to trial, who I think were mainly Muslim. The Morning Star, reporting this, did not mention what the defendants were there for.
    Be very careful just how politically correct you try to be, Justice is a top priority.

    1. Mike Sivier

      Justice is exactly what this man’s actions would have prevented.
      Don’t you know that he could have caused a mistrial, meaning the defendants, guilty or not, might have been freed?
      As for your immediate press blackout, isn’t it strange that we all have the details, in that case?
      He had the 13-month prison sentence, by the way, because this was not his first offence. He had committed the same crime before and had been let off with a suspended sentence. Now he must serve that jail term. At the time of that original sentence, he would also have been told the reason his actions were wrong, so he has no excuse.

  3. Mike, I did not know that he could have caused a mistrial. I learned from Reddit from a very thorough discussion that the judge had decided to hold the trial in three sections and forbade reporting so as to keep the next section from being unduly influenced. So, at one level you are right.
    However, you wrote: For reasons that are beyond the rest of us, he took video of a court case, despite knowing that filming of court proceedings is illegal.
    This sounds like he was in the court room. Was that your intention?
    I know Robinson is desperate to warn the UK of what he perceives as the Muslim threat, both from terrorism a la Manchester and taking advantage of white girls where the transgressors are protected by what he sees as our PC stance.
    Would be interested to know what one of my heroes, Peter Tatchell, would think.

    1. Mike Sivier

      Okay, he was in the court precincts, reporting on a court case and ignoring reporting restrictions on that case that were imposed for a good reason. In the eyes of the law, there’s no material difference between that and what I wrote.
      These laws are in place to protect the innocent – such as the alleged victims in the case in question, and to preserve the principles of justice on which our law is based.
