One part of it is certainly the excellent witness statement put together by Tommy and his team. It contests a number of key facts, and details the underlying injustice of the entire process. @AndrewLawton posted it in full.
BREAKING: Huddersfield grooming gang jailed for total of 221 years. A THREAD.
The town joins at least a dozen towns and cities across England where hundreds – if not thousands – of girls and young people have been sexually exploited by #groominggangs over the last few decades. #CSE#CSA
Tommy Robinson speaking on points he was tried for. UK court has widened charges. Tommy will be tried not only on breaching the reporting restriction only but because he reported on "Muslims" and reported facts and statistics which were publicly reported previously.
The Muslim defendants in the rape gang trial told Tommy Robinson they "wanted to rape his mother."
Tommy Robinson has spent 2 and 1/2 months in solitary confinement starving. He fears the Crown court will put him back into prison simply for stating the defendants were "Muslim."
Sure all the #FreeTommy people who sent in donations for Tommy's legal fees will be delighted to see him sunning himself in a 5 star hotel in the Canaries.... for two weeks. dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6…
Wanted to knock off a Tommy Robinson holiday diary but I suppose it writes itself. And I'm too flipping busy...
This is Lutz Bachmann the guy Yaxley Lennon aka Tommy Robinson was hanging out with in Tenerife. He's barred entry from the UK because he's a hate preacher.
A big issue for Tommy is going to be whether his appeal(s) will be thrown out for being time-barred (filed too late)
As @ezralevant noted, Tommy’s team is seeking to get both the contempt findings quashed - including the one from 2017
The appeals were “out of time” - too late.
Tommy’s barrister is arguing that the shenanigans the government pulled with Tommy made it very difficult to put a case together, and, as far as I can tell, that the judges should use their discretion to hear the appeal anyway
I’ve listened to the full segment of the BBC show and the entire package is about social media corruption of juries. He speaks at length about how important it is for the DEFENDANT to FEEL he/she’s have a fair trial.
There is a reverse irony to this: Tommy Robinson has had insanely prejudicial public reporting for a decade! There is no way anyone who has been exposed to the reporting ever since the EDL can know who he really is. #FreeTommy
2)Do you mean squashing or paying?? 🧐 cos it was the #DNC@HillaryClinton That “invested” in media.. The @wikileaks shows all the people that make up #Propaganda against @POTUS or anything not beneficial for your friends the Deep states global agenda..
March 12th 2018. UK government (Home Affairs Select Committee) talks to YouTube representative about censoring Tommy Robinson from YouTube. (15:27:50 to 15:30:46 in this video) parliamentlive.tv/Event/Index/2b…
The second part really picks up. The Home Affairs Select Committee is yelling at this YouTube representative, saying the website needs to censor Tommy Robinson because the Finsbury Park attacker was apparently "radicalized" by Tommy's videos.
To those who support #FreeTommy / #TommyRobinson, from someone with the actual qualifications to know what they’re talking about. A THREAD.
I’m a reporter who witnessed Tommy both live streaming in front of jurors outside #LeedsCrownCourt and him being sentenced inside the court.
For justified legal reasons, the press have been *temporarily* banned from reporting on a trial that is being heard in the court, but *will* report on it later this year. At the moment, we cannot even say which trial this is.
Instead of taking a brilliant chance to inform over 10,000 live viewers and millions more later how reporting restrictions work in the UK, you picked up the MASSIVE power, backed by guns and armies and courts and prisons and threw it at Tommy Robinson.
1) Tommy Robinson was arrested last Friday for "Breaching The Peace" outside of a courtroom. Inside the court, jurors were considering verdicts for the defendants that Tommy was recording. #FreeTommy#FreeTommyRobinson#FreeSpeech
2) Here are the cases and the schedule. Because the grooming gang was so large, there are three total cases. Two of them are shown here with the current schedule.
3) The Jury had retired to consider the verdict. Knowing this, Tommy pointed out the overnight bags of the defendants when they were entering the courthouse. Tommy suspected the verdicts were in and would be delivered on that day.
