Default Re: ROBINSON FREED: thanks supporters as he walks free from prison...

Stephen Christopher Yaxley-Lennon (born 27 November 1982), known by the pseudonym Tommy Robinson, and previously as Andrew McMaster and Paul Harris, is an English far-right activist] who co-founded and served as spokesman and leader of the English Defence League (EDL), from which he resigned in 2013. For a short time in 2012, he was joint party vice-chairman of the British Freedom Party.

He led the EDL from 2009 until 8 October 2013. He continued as an activist, and in 2015 became involved with the development of Pegida UK, a British chapter of the German-based Pegida organisation (Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of the West).

In May 2018, Robinson was sentenced to 13 months imprisonment for contempt of court after publishing a Facebook Live video of defendants entering a law court, contrary to a court order to prevent reporting those specific trials while proceedings are ongoing. That sentence included activation of an earlier three month suspended sentence for a similar earlier contempt of court. However, on 1 August 2018 this sentence was quashed in the court of appeals, and a new hearing ordered.

He wrote for The Rebel Media and wrote an autobiography, Enemy of the State, and Mohammed's Koran: Why Muslims Kill for Islam, together with Peter McLoughlin.

I think these types of young men need a second job, or perhaps should take up music or panting?
