Tommy Robinson has been sent to prison yet again. The latest sentence is six months. As I understand it, three months have also been added from the earlier suspended sentence. Minus time served, that makes (I think) four months. He is expected to serve half of that, so about two months. Which is more than enough time for Mohammed to finish him off.
I put together the collage for the banner at top of this post in September of 2011. That’s almost eight years ago. I don’t remember the details, but it must have been the first time Her Majesty’s Government bunged him into chokey on trumped-up charges. There have been several more since then.
Here’s a report from The Sun on the sentencing of Tommy Robinson.
JIHADI JAIL: Tommy Robinson Sent To Jail Dubbed ‘Jihadi Training Camp’
RIGHT-Wing activist Tommy Robinson has been sent to Belmarsh Prison that has been likened to a ‘Jihadi Training Camp’ following his 9-month sentence for reporting outside the court of a Muslim grooming gang trial last year.
Robinson, 36 was sentenced to nine months in total at London’s Old Bailey with many dubbing the jailing as a ‘sentence for journalism’.
This seems to be the live-stream of the sentencing.
The Daily Mail reports on the mass demonstration by Tommy’s supporters outside the Old Bailey.
One of my British contacts sent a tip about a White House petition that was set up to appeal for asylum for Tommy:
High-level moves are being tried over here, but, all good options have run out for him. This petition just happened to cross my desk today. It’s a fool’s errand, but, the numbers seem a PR embarrassment to you, too, don’t they?
And what keeps some people’s hearts ticking, literally, can depend on keeping them in the news.
Here’s what the petition says:
We request that Tommy Robinson be granted political asylum in the United States due to the corrupt judicial system in the EU governed United Kingdom. We feel this is important due to the open protection the United Kingdom government provides the proven to exist Muslim Grooming Gangs. When Mr. Robinson exposed these gangs of Muslim rapists of underage English girls, the court put placed him in a prison with a high Muslim population, where an attempt on his life was made. When he was arrested and confined a second time, the court again placed him in a prison with a high Muslim population, and when public outrage ensued, placed him in solitary confinement for periods far exceeding legal and ethical standards.
Because of this, we ask the President to provide asylum to Mr. Robinson.
The petition requires a total of 100,000 signatures by August 7 to get a response from the White House. As of the time I accessed the page this evening there were 1,964 signatures, meaning that 98,036 more are needed.
I never thought Tommy’s appeal for asylum in the USA had a snowball’s chance in hell. The British government has made it abundantly clear that putting Tommy into prison is a top state priority. I’m certain that it has enough leverage to convince the Trump administration not to grant Tommy’s request. MI6 may lack the capabilities of the NSA, but it’s still no slouch at gathering signals intelligence. I would be willing to bet that the Brits have enough dirt on enough prominent American political figures to be able to dissuade Mr. Trump from publicly taking any action to help Tommy.
However, that doesn’t preclude the White House from slipping a quiet word to the Brits explaining exactly what they can expect if Tommy were to die in prison. At this point, that’s the best we can hope for.
