Why the UK Jailed Tommy Robinson
Tommy Robinson ( a famous English opposition politician ) , was leader EDL English Defence League from 2009 until 8 October 2013, when he was persuaded to leave the organisation by the think tank Quilliam. He continued as an activist, and in 2015 became involved with the development of Pegida UK, a British chapter of the German-based Pegidaorganisation.
In May 2018, Robinson began serving a 10-month prison sentence for contempt of courtafter 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. An earlier 3-month suspended sentences for the same offence was activated at the same time.
He was a writer for The Rebel Media and the author of an autobiography, Enemy of the State, and Mohammed’s Koran: Why Muslims Kill for Islam, co-authored by Peter McLoughlin.
