Update 4:12pm EST:
Another photo of Tommy, presumably taken in the hospital:
Update 3:50pm EST:
The EDL is urging its supporters to remain calm.
We all want Tommy to go to the police. We need to learn whether the police will act against the perpetrators of this heinous act. If not, it is yet more evidence that there is a two-tier system of justice in England.
Update 3:26pm EST:
Message from Tommy: “They were shouting ‘allahu akhbar’ and ‘Merry Christmas, Tommy’”.
Also: He had a C.T. scan, and apparently has “bruising of the brain”. He got out of hospital this afternoon.
Last night English Defence League leader Tommy Robinson was attacked and beaten up by a gang of “Asians”. The following report just came in from a source in the EDL:
He was out driving, when he saw a car similar to his wife’s, driven by a blond white girl. The other car flashed its lights so Tommy pulled over.
A group of Pakistani youths wearing knuckle dusters poured out. Tommy was knocked out pretty quickly, and they gave him a good kicking.
He looks pretty beaten up, but no bones were broken, and no eyes or teeth are missing. He had a brain scan this morning. We don’t know the results yet.
He has spoken to The Sun, who asked whether he had called the police. Tommy said there was no point, as a racial attack on a white guy was of no interest to them.
That’s all the information I have at the moment. If anything further comes in, I’ll post it.
