Tommy Robinson was at Speakers’ Corner in Hyde Park today, presumably reconnoitering in advance of his planned appearance on Sunday. He and his camera crew were asked to leave by the police.
On Sunday Tommy plans to read the speech that would have been given by Martin Sellner, the Austrian Identitaire who was detained and then deported from the UK. Since Mr. Sellner can’t be there at Speakers’ Corner to give his speech, Tommy intends to read it for him:
Tommy’s asking people to share, tweet, and otherwise publicize “The Battle for Speakers’ Corner”. He recommends the use of a hashtag, which I think is #SpeakersCorner.
Here’s a shorter video with poorer audio quality, taken on Tommy’s cell phone while he was actually at Hyde Park:
Note: In the first video, Tommy refers to the British government as “totalitarian”. Later on we’ll be discussing the use of that particular word.
