Is Tommy Robinson a political prisoner?

The following article is a chronological account of the arrest of Tommy Robinson and explains why the Leader of the English Defence League is not a political prisoner and how he used 53 of his most loyal patriots to cover up the crimes he had committed in order to attain martyr status within the ranks of the EDL.

This resulted in 53 members of the English Defence League being arrested and bailed until November.


7th September 2012 – Tommy released a video statement .

What came out of this video, was not just Tommy’s anger at EDL, but also his frustration at the knowledge he was about to be arrested and that his wife had left him. He stated he had been under investigation for various crimes, such as “money laundering, conspiracy to evade tax, mortgage fraud” also stating it was “going back 6 years“.

These charges have nothing to do with EDL or politics. He also indicated that he had handed his passport in and that he expected to be arrested in October. He also claimed he had no money and no funders.





A) Wife left him.

B) Knowledge of forthcoming arrest.

C) Several crimes dating back 6 years.

D) No Money or funders.

E) No Passport Video evidence



10th October 2012 – Reports of Tommy with false passport

This is another of Tommy’s fake Passports





11th September 2012 – Tommy visits USA


Tommy tweeted constantly about being in USA. Much to the surprise of most people, for 3 reasons.

1) He had only just stated, 4 days previously, he had to hand his passport in to the Police

2) He had been refused entry to USA IN 2010 due to his criminal record, which had become worse rather than spent.

3) He claimed 4 days previously, he had no money and no funders. He also made a speech where he claimed himself and Kev have had people chase them with shotguns and “had cars blown up”


Tommy makes sure everyone knows he is in USA



Tommy refused admission into USA in 2010




29th September 2012 – Florence, Italy



Tommy flew out to Florence in Italy to give a hate speech. Even though he had claimed not to have any funders and could not afford to go, in his statement on 7th September


F) Who funded this

G) What passport did he use


10th October 2012 – Tommy knows he is in the shit


 Tommy sent a tweet to Pam Geller in USA, asking for her phone number and stating “Think there will be some activity this week about my trip to usa”


H) Prison term was imminent.

I) His crimes did not qualify him as a ‘Political Prisoner’


11th October 2012 – Tommy resigns from the British Freedom Party




This strongly suggests the British Freedom Party knew the extent of the trouble Tommy was in and it was decided by all concerned that he would resign his deputy leadership for the sake of Kevin Carroll’s Police and Crime Commissioner election bid.



15th October 2012 – Decides to use EDL as a cover.


 Tommy started to arrange a ‘secret mission’ with some of the more prominent EDL members, those that were more likely to make a noise after being arrested, but also those that were more likely to go along with anything he said without questioning the reasons behind it. He also made sure those that were more likely to leak this information to Anti EDL groups, were made aware of the plans, so Police would inevitably be informed.

J) Gives the impression he has been detained for a ‘Political action’
K) Gets more attention in other Countries.
L) No regard for men he used, simply to cover his own criminal activities


17th October 2012 – Plans start to leak on open forums



 Although by this time, Tommy has already made sure the plans had been leaked to a number of Anti EDL groups, the taunting begins on open forums. EDL members and admins on Unplugged Debate page could not resist slipping, what they thought were teasers, into the forum.

Admins in this group include

Vinny James

Babs Davis

Sarah Hully

Hel Gower



20th October 2012 – The arrests have already taken place.


At this time, the Anti EDLers had already been informed of the arrests, but sworn to secrecy for another few hours, as more arrests were to follow. It seems the EDL were not kept as much in the loop as they thought.



21st October 2012- Photos of the paramilitary clothed EDL




Some of the lads Tommy used in his Big Van Scam, little did they know he had set them up completely, for his own ends.



22nd October 2012- Tommy kicks off his Political prisoner claims

 Although Tommy has already spoke of his forth coming arrest for crimes he has committed and has been under investigation for, going back 6 years, he still tries to blur these facts.




He knew this was going to be the case and spoke of it 2 weeks earlier, before planning his Big Van Scam.



22nd October 2012 – Kev Carroll can’t resist a little racial and religious hate stirring



 Despite running for Police and Crimes Commissioner in Bedfordshire, Tommy’s cousin Kevin can not resist the chance to stir up some racial tension. Even though EDL spend much of their time demonstrating over, and trying to convince the world that Muslims do not get arrested in the UK, they also spend much of their time demonstrating outside the courts during trials of Muslims.

Kev can not resist stirring the Irony stick even further into the bullshit pot, by claiming the prison is full of these people that they claim never get arrested. Further more, Just to prove Kevin was making it up as he went along, Tommy was not even at Wormwood Scrubs Prison, he was being held at Wandsworth Prison.
