WHERE is Tommy Robinson? British Authorities Owe Us An Answer
Where is Tommy Robinson?  A question whose answer should be demanded rather than merely asked.

We all know where Prince Harry is but not where Tommy, arrested Friday outside a court in Leeds, England, is.

Modern day Merry England has become far more nightmare than fairytale, as it steadily works its way toward ugly police state status.

Scores of pictures continue to dominate ‘The News’  one week after the Royal wedding while, according to a current Fox News headline: ‘Right Wing Activist Tommy Robinson reportedly jailed after filming outside child grooming trial’.

“Right wing activist”?  How about civil rights activist or humanitarian activist?

“Reportedly” jailed?  Was Tommy Robinson jailed or not?

The trial of the child sex scandal going on in Leeds, England right now is not a one-off, it’s an ongoing horror as Britain has been racked by a SERIES of child sex scandals perpetuated by gangs of predominantly Muslim men.

The stunning truth of horrific child abuse is not pretty and gallons of tea sipped from bone china cups won’t ever change it.

The antiseptic of God’s own sunshine is needed to penetrate Britain’s ongoing series of child sex scandals.
.
Here’s what happened Friday as many of the rest of us merely went about our business: Courageous Tommy Robinson showed up—alone— to livestream on his phone the trial of the latest alleged child grooming scandal, and was “reportedly” arrested during his remarkable act of valor.

So who’s the real prince here?

“U.K. right-wing activist and journalist Tommy Robinson was arrested and reportedly jailed Friday after he filmed members of an alleged child grooming gang entering a court for trial—but the details of his purported sentence remain murky after the judge ordered the press not to report on the case. (Fox News, May 26, 2018)

“Robinson, the former head of the English Defense League and a longtime activist against Islam and Islamic migration, was arrested after he was filming men accused of being part of a gang that groomed children. Britain has been rocked by a series of child sex scandals perpetuated by gangs of predominantly Muslim men.

“Video shows Robinson, whose real name is Stephen Lennon, being surrounded by as many as seven police officers as he livestreamed the incident on his phone. The police informed him he was being arrested for “breach of the peace.”

“But shortly after his arrest, a source with knowledge of the case told Fox News that he had been jailed for 13 months on a contempt-of-court charge.”

Dare we ask whether authorities seized the opportunity of arresting Robinson Friday for a contempt-of-court charge dating back to a year ago?

“A court listing indicated the case was “closed” by Friday afternoon. (Fox News)

“One source said he was jailed in Hull Prison. The prison declined to comment to Fox News on whether Robinson was there. Leeds Crown Court also did not return a request for information.

“What kind of police state have we become?”

Surely it matters to his loved ones and supporters into which gaol Tommy has been thrown.

“According to The Independent, Robinson was already on a suspended sentence for contempt of court over a gang rape case in 2017. (Fox News)
 
“The judge in the case on Friday slapped a reporting ban on the case. The order bans reporters from reporting on a case if there is reason to believe the reporting could prejudice a trial. The order prevents reporting until the conclusion of the trial Robinson was reporting on.

“The gag order led to news outlets in the U.K. removing their reporting from their websites to comply with the order. Most remaining reporting in the U.K. comments on Robinson’s arrest, but not on his purported sentencing.

“Reaction to Robinson’s sentencing from commentators and right-wing politicians was fierce, particularly as it is the latest in a series of commentators—particularly those who are critical of Islam and mass Islamic migration into the U.K.—being locked up by British authorities.

“What kind of police state have we become?” tweeted U.K. Independence Party leader and European MP Gerard Batten.

“I am trying to recall a legal case where someone was convicted of a ‘crime’ which cannot be reported on,” he added. “Where he can be cast into prison without it being possible to report his name, offence, or place of imprisonment for fear of contempt of court.”

 


“Arrested for “breaching the peace” while reporting on a Islamic grooming gang trial?”

“Arrested for “breaching the peace” while reporting on a Islamic grooming gang trial?”

If only British authorities spent as much time working to imprison child groomers as they did on Tommy Robinson.

If only the safety of children everywhere did not have to depend on “if onlys”.

“Sources with knowledge of Robinson’s case spoke on condition of anonymity in part because of fear they would be arrested for contempt. One told Fox that Robinson’s lawyer warned that, considering the presence of Muslim gang members in prison, a 13-month sentence was tantamount to a death sentence. (Fox News)

“Tommy’s lawyer said he will likely die in jail given his profile and previous credible threats, and the judge basically said he doesn’t care,” the source said. “He sentenced him to 13 months in prison.”

If, given his profile and previous credible threats, it is Tommy’s fate to “die in jail”, it should be the authorities responsibility to take preventative action to save his life.

Like American police vulnerable to false charges and exposed to life-threatening circumstances, British authorities should issue Tommy Robinson a 24-7 body cam for his own physical safety.

Isn’t Tommy Robinson’s life worth protecting with a body cam, Prime Minister Theresa May?

Will Tommy Robinson be subject to bail like anyone else arrested?

There’s no jail on earth where Tommy can be hidden, because the toughest political activists imaginable, far more resolute than those in the mainstream and social media—the relentless Court of Public opinion—has Tommy on their watch.
