Tommy Robinson

Much has been written about the recent case of Tommy Robinson, his apparent summary trial and incarceration.

  • The swiftness with which injustice was meted out to Tommy Robinson is stunning. No, more than that: it is terrifying.
  • Without having access to his own lawyer, Robinson was summarily tried and sentenced to 13 months behind bars. He was then transported to Hull Prison.
  • Meanwhile, the judge who sentenced Robinson also ordered British media not to report on his case. Newspapers that had already posted reports of his arrest quickly took them down. All this happened on the same day.
  • In Britain, rapists enjoy the right to a full and fair trial, the right to the legal representation of their choice, the right to have sufficient time to prepare their cases, and the right to go home on bail between sessions of their trial. No such rights were offered, however, to Tommy Robinson.

In 2014 an Islamic teacher who repeatedly molested a terrified girl of 11 as he taught her the Koran has escaped a jail sentence because his wife’s English is so bad.

In the latter case it would appear that no reporting restrictions were imposed. Why? Does this mean that we have two codes of justice? If so, why? Is not the right to one’s own solicitor inviolate?

 For those arrested and taken to the police station unexpectedly, they will be offered the services of a solicitor when they arrive at the police station. You have the right to use a solicitor of your choice.

Why was this right apparently overridden?

When the State and/or the Courts can ‘gag’ the media, wherefore democracy? Wherefore freedom of information? Wherefore ‘free speech’? When Judges are unelected and only answerable to the State, wherefore democracy?

What this case involves is; no more, no less; censorship, in which case I repeat: wherefore free speech, wherefore freedom of information, wherefore democracy?

Welcome to 1984 – but 34 years later. Who has allowed this, but a compliant, servile, people who appear unable to take an interest in how they are governed.

And so say all of us – I hope!

As ye sow, so shall ye reap – and on that point, don’t start me on Brexit!

  1. The speed at which Abu Hamza was dealt with compared to Robinson suggests there are two ways of doing things.

  2. freedom and democracy are dead across the whole of Europe, this is what the end looks like, a form of soft authoritarianism, a toxic mixture of, unaccountable corporate and financial power, decadent metropolitanism, multilateralism, multi culturalism,
    LGBT rights, and feminism all dressed up in blathery incompressible post modernism language which parades itself about as some sort of all consuming ” values” system, a system who’s only purpose is to destroy freedom of thought, democracy and sovereignty,….it can’t go on much longer, i fear we’re reaching a breaking point in what will sooner or later turn into a hard and very intolerant form of authoritarianism, this will have to happen to try and maintain the status quo, having said that i can’t see the so called “left” winning this coming conflict, I’ll predict this’ll get potentially very ugly with more instances of the Tommy Robinson kind

    i see Soros wants to overturn Brexit, if he’s successful that will be the end of any form of sovereignty or what little democracy we had, unfortunately people still think we can have some sort of soft Brexit, well we can’t, the EU don’t want one, so its time to smell the coffee and force our stupid feckless and totally treacherous political class into hard Brexit, if we don’t the EU will treat us no different than Greece, the EEA agreement wont save us, neither will EFTA, its becoming more and more obvious that the whole system is now horribly anti democratic, the events in Greece, Catalonia and now Italy testify to this toxic thing we jokingly call a “Union”, its no such thing, and a former victim of this EU “machine”, Yanis Varoufakis summed it up perfectly, ‘ you can’t negotiate with them’!

    i know people don’t support this but i swear down unless it happens we wont get Brexit, no, we’ll get BINO, Brexit In Name Only! and all those horrible ghastly globalist lefty types will never, never let us true patriots forget it! they’ll rub our faces in their so called
    “values” and love every minute of it

  3. Yanis Varoufakis summed it up perfectly, ‘ you can’t negotiate with them’!

    I’m always amazed that it was thought negotiations with the EU would run to a pattern or a scheme. There are ‘laws’ for electricity and ‘rules’ for chess, however, the EU is not like that. Two years after the Brexit vote some still cling to the idea that a plan or scheme of some sort would have helped us in our quest to leave. This is impossible to ‘prove’ either way so we are stuck with eternal finger wagging.
