Tommy Robinson is to stand trial again for contempt of court.

This is the same offence for which he has already spent a considerable amount of time in prison, most of it in solitary confinement for his own safety.

The journalist who has been following his case more closely than anyone is Ezra Levant of Rebel Media.

Levant, himself a trained lawyer, is very worried that justice is not being served here.

Tommy Robinson – ‘I’m Going to Stand for Parliament’

Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, AKA Tommy Robinson, founder and former leader of the anti-Islam English Defence League (EDL), leaves the Old Bailey, London's Central Criminal Court, in central London on October 23, 2018, after a case in which he is charged with contempt of court was referred to the Attorney General. - …

Tommy Robinson has announced that he wants to stand for parliament — either in Brussels, as an MEP, if Brexit fails, or in Westminster. “If anyone in this country wants to really rock the boat put me in there [Parliament] because I won’t lie and I won’t hold back!” he told me when we met this month. But that was before last Thursday’s announcement by Attorney-General Geoffrey Cox that it is “in the public interest” to bring further proceedings against Robinson for contempt of court.

As the Guardian reports:

Robinson was jailed for 13 months for contempt of court in May last year after he allegedly filmed people involved in the criminal trial of four men who were later convicted of gang-raping a teenage girl.

But a contempt finding was quashed by the court of appeal in August and he was freed on bail pending new proceedings at the Old Bailey.

If convicted, Robinson could be sent to prison once more — putting paid, at least temporarily, to his political ambitions.

There is no bar to standing for election as an MP once you are released from prison.

Tommy Robinson’s Facebook and Amazon Bans Can Only Lead to Trouble

Facebook has banned the third largest political page in the UK from their service, Tommy Robinson. Amazon has just stopped selling his book on the Quran. Twitter and Paypal already acted along these lines months ago.
This is a terrible day for freedom of speech. And possibly an even worse one for the future of social cohesion in Britain.

The official line being touted by Facebook is that Tommy:

“…has repeatedly broken [Facebook community] standards, posting material that uses dehumanizing language and calls for violence targeted at Muslims. He has also behaved in ways that violate our policies around organized hate.”

Sounds bad. But where’s the evidence?

I think we should see it, don’t you? After all, it’s no trivial matter when a social media giant snatches away the publishing platform and livelihood of a citizen journalist with over one million followers. If Tommy Robinson is genuinely whipping up hate and calling for violence against Muslims, surely the police would surely have been in there like a shot, launching yet another prosecution against him.
