Stephen Yaxley-Lennon (right) was appointed as an advisor to Gerard Batten’s UKIP in December 2018, and stood in this year’s EU Parliament elections. He didn’t get a seat.

Anti-Islamist, anti-immigration campaigner Stephen Yaxley-Lennon (aka ‘Tommy Robinson’) has appealed to Donald Trump to let him flee the UK before being sentenced for contempt of court.

I hope everyone can see the irony in his behaviour.

This is a man who has spoken out against the admission of Muslim refugees into the UK because they may be criminals – terrorists – in disguise.

Now he – a convicted criminal – is seeking refugee status in the United States.

Maybe he can’t see the hypocrisy there, but I hope we all can.

According to the Independent report (see the link below), he said he would be killed if he was jailed because UK prisons are “controlled by jihadi gangs”.

This is a theme that he has been using since 2014, when he told the Oxford Union that Woodhill Prison had become “an ISIS training camp” with radicals “running the wings”.

Many decent UK citizens might be happy to see this man leave and never return.

But the fact is that he committed a crime in the UK and has a penalty to pay.

He is due to appear for sentencing before a judge at the Old Bailey tomorrow (June 11).

It would be a crime if he were allowed to escape from that appointment.
