‘Tommy Robinson’ to serve remainder of his original sentence for contempt of court

This was no surprise.

Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, the far-right activist better-known by his stage name ‘Tommy Robinson’, has been sent to prison to serve the remainder of his sentence for contempt of court.

He had already served two months of a 13-month sentence when his lawyers managed to have him released on appeal, but a subsequent repeat trial confirmed his guilt.

As prisoners serve only half their sentences these days, those two months took four off the sentence the judge at the Old Bailey handed down today (July 11). He was ordered to serve nine months but will probably be out in four and a half.

Yaxley-Lennon is on record as claiming that the UK’s prisons are now run by Islamist terrorists, and that jailing him is the equivalent of a death sentence.

He appealed to Donald Trump to grant him asylum in the United States, ignoring the hypocrisy in the fact that he said the UK should refuse to take refugees from other countries because they were criminals.

This Writer wonders what he will be saying after he has served his sentence – if he survives it against all his own predictions.

Will all these terrorists he fears so much radicalise him?

    If Tommeh wants to live in the US, he’ll have to learn to obey its laws.

    I still wonder why he changed his name to that of a Gay Rights activist and singer, seems at odds with his views.
    “#Sing if you’re glad to be Yaxley” ?

      I seem to recall that the Tommy Robinson on whom he modelled himself was a football hooligan or something similar.

    Well deserved sentence, but I see his thuggish supporters are trying to make a martyr out of Yaxley-Lennon.
