I’m astounded by some of the reactions to this arrest and incarceration – it’s by no means established that he did something wrong but hey ho, let’s say he did – rapists getting 6 month suspended sentences?
More the point is that that injunction on the press should never ever have been there, as the Independent pointed out.
But there’s something which trumps all of that. Do you remember last evening? What was the big news? Westminster rubbish, wasn’t it, about Remoan and Brexit. This morning’s press was full of it. And this evening is World Cup.
And what quietly happened in the background last evening with nobody noticing? Tommy Robinson who had been in a relatively secure prison in Hull has now been moved to a prison in the Midlands.
UPDATE: I do not believe “71%” of Tommy’s new fellow inmates are Muslim. It is more like 1 in 5. That is still high and higher than average UK prison population. There’s no need for us to disseminate incorrect figures when the real truth is bad enough.
Not just that but it is an open prison where any inmates can get at any others. Last night the Muslims were banging on his wall and chanting for his death. Now you tell me if that is humane, if that is right? For any human being – doesn’t even matter if it were Tony Blair – he still has a right not to be subjected to that.
This is, frankly, cruel and unusual – this is North Korea, Turkey, Thailand, not a supposedly civilised nation. Everyone and his dog knows what is about to happen and to the idiots who say he had it coming – why? Why did he? Everyone knows this is zero to do with contempt and all to do with the rallies.
And what were the rallies about?
1. Stop Muslim rape of children;
2. Free speech.
Niemoeller, people, Edmund Burke. Any Christians among you please put in a prayer tonight for his safety, because the State is sure going to do nothing to keep him alive.
