Chant No Longer FREE TOMMY!  But TOMMY’S FREE!
It wasn’t Britain’s Prime Minister Theresa May or any other political bigwig who championed the cause of imprisoned Tommy Robinson, but the little people from all walks of life.

Cheers are being sent up worldwide today because the chant “FREE TOMMY!” has been mercifully renewed to “TOMMY FREE!”

Readers can see for themselves this morning that the same news outlets who largely looked the other way during the two months of his imprisonment; the ones who wrote stories broadly branding him as a “criminal” who deserved what he got, are running the news of his release on their front pages.


Hello there, Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC)!

No, it wasn’t political bigwigs or major news outlets that carried Tommy’s plight to the masses, it was the little people’s unsung heroes like proud Canadian Valerie Price, editor of ActforCanada.ca.

Valerie Price has worked tirelessly for the release of Tommy Robinson from his FIRST imprisonment, raising money to pay for his lawyers and NEVER giving up on a genuine folk hero striving to make the world a safer place for kids.

Valerie Price, (God Bless her!) is one of those rare individuals who works quietly in the background not wanting to take attention away from what Tommy strives to do: getting authorities to deal more quickly and effectively with the increasing growth of child grooming gangs, in Tommy’s case, Muslim ones. 

Because most of today’s MSM and social media make no mention of child grooming gangs, in their coverage, not even when the word ’Muslim’ being a word that will get stories like this one killed, were conspicuously missing, here is Wikipedia’s child grooming description:

“Child grooming is befriending and establishing an emotional connection with a child, and sometimes the family, to lower the child’s inhibitions with the objective of sexual abuse. Child grooming is also regularly used to lure minors into various illicit businesses such as child trafficking, child prostitution, or the production of child pornography.

“This crime has been proscribed in various ways since the International Convention for the Suppression of the Traffic in Women and Children, which was agreed in 1921 as a multilateral treaty of the League of Nations that addressed the problem of international trafficking of women and children for nefarious purposes. The proscribed traffic was international in nature at that time. The concept of localised grooming, in which gangs groom neighbourhood victims, was defined in 2010 by the UK Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre.

“Online grooming of youngsters via chat rooms and webcams is an area COST team officers are encountering more and more.”

“TOMMY Robinson will today be freed from jail after winning his appeal for a contempt of court conviction. (The Sun, July 31, 2018)

“The English Defence League (EDL) founder was sentenced to 13 months in prison earlier this year after broadcasting footage of trial defendants on social media.”

Notice how The Sun, in fairness much like other major media, refer to “the footage of trial defendants”, not child grooming defendants on social media?

“But the 35-year-old, who did not appear for the hearing, is a free man again after the Court of Appeal ruled there were technical flaws in the ruling of the judge who jailed him.”

The Daily Mail was more specific about the botched case which ended in Tommy Robinson’s May arrest.

“Ex-EDL leader Tommy Robinson is freed on bail after top judges rule his 13-month sentence for contempt was ‘muddled and rushed’ because he was jailed just five hours after his arrest.”(Daily Mail, July 31, 2018)

“Tommy Robinson streamed an hour-long Facebook Live outside Leeds Crown Court in May and was later arrested and jailed for 13 months after admitting being in contempt of court - but was freed on bail today.

“Tommy Robinson was freed on bail today after judges ruled it was ‘unfair’ the former EDL leader was given 13 months in prison during a ‘muddled’ court case rushed through just five hours after his arrest.


“The far right activist, 35, has been in prison for two months after filming defendants involved in a criminal trial at Leeds Crown Court in May and broadcasting the footage to 250,000 people using Facebook Live.

“The far-right activist appealed against his 13-month jail term for contempt of court claiming the punishment was ‘excessive’ and the hearing was ‘rushed’.
“Today the Court of Appeal quashed his conviction saying the decision to jail him within five hours of his arrest ‘gave rise to unfairness’. 

“A panel of three senior judges also criticised Mr Justice Marson, the judge who sent him to prison, saying he gave ‘no clarity’ about what parts Facebook Live video were problematic and ignored that it was deleted shortly after his arrest.

“The judge also denied Robinson the chance to defend himself properly by not adjourning the case to another day, the ruling said. 

“Robinson’s successful appeal caused supporters to cry with joy and cheer wildly before chanting ‘Tommy’s coming home’ to the tune of England football anthem Three Lions. 

“Anti-racism supporters had also gathered on the Royal Courts of Justice and were shouting chants such as ‘Nazi scum, off our streets’ and ‘refugees are welcome here’ as the judgment came in.
“Supporters clung to one another and jumped for joy when news of Robinson’s release emerged.” 


Tommy was sentenced to 13 months in prison.  Authorities turned a deaf ear on his lawyer, family and friends who worried that he may have been moved to prisons holding Muslim inmates.

There is little doubt that allegations against him when reheard at The Old Bailey “later this year—“possibly as early as September” could mean being sent back to prison.

Yet, the one crime Tommy can rightfully be charged with is embarrassing the authorities who have been slow in bringing heinous child groomers to justice.

Tommy’s freedom nonetheless is a victory hundreds of thousands around world have been waiting for.

That it happened during an era where conservative voices are being effectively suppressed by a political social media joined at the hip with progressive/left politicians in office, sends a welcome message of hope.

It is happening during a time when authorities in many lands are using the cover of “mental illness” for shooters yelling out Allahu Akbar as they take down citizens in public venues.

It’s a clear and glorious victory that the sunlight is coming back on the evil and corrupt child grooming gangs, which is at the heart and soul of what Tommy Robinson is trying to do.

And just to think that Tommy brings the sunshine back on an issue being protected by the inaction of authorities from prison, where some say his very life was at risk.

Thank You Tommy Robinson and supporters for making the world a safer place for innocent children.
