A few questions for departed EDL leader Tommy Robinson that the media should be asking.

We have a few questions and points for Tommy Robinson, that we wish someone in the media would put to him.

"Tommy" stated in his interview with Nicky Campbell for 5Live, and on other occasions, that he headbutted Alan Mckee at their Blackburn demo for being a nazi. In actual fact he did it because McKee called him a grass.


Tommy says he has never had a problem with all Muslims. So how does he explain this? 


Tommy said the neo-nazi element of the EDL were invited back by others while he was inside. However, Tommy himself invited them back in this video he made after his release.


 ”Everyone is welcome back”
“All these little f—— Islamists are going to be out in force thinking they can take the piss, so every lad needs to be there, it’s important. As I said, I welcome everyone back, I take everyone back, there’s no hard feelings with anyone. Let’s crack on, have a united front, and take back our cities street by street.”


The whole video is worth a watch, he pulled it and released an edited version but we had already grabbed the above. 

And here’s the Northern Casuals being invited back by EDL on their facebook page.



Why when Tommy went on European jaunts, did he engage with racist groups like Bloc Identitaire?


Tommy recently made appeals for donations to pay his legal fees. Where is that money, and who owns the DEL merchandise account that the money was being paid into?


The EDL claimed to be non violent, non racist etc. Did Tommy ever condemn any of his supporters for their criminal activities? 


Does Tommy plan on working closely with Pamela Gellar and Robert Spencer, despite their extreme anti Muslim stance? 

Tommy has stated:-
"I was away for 18 weeks and when I got back the movement didn’t represent what I stood for."
Here is a list of demos and actions he has attended, on behalf of this movement which doesn’t represent him, since that realisation.

Sheffield twice.
London at least twice.
Two sponsored walks

EDL Hate Music, Love Racism and the Tactics of Intimidation.

By Janie Jones

The EDL have never shied away from using intimidation tactics. All our admins have had many, many threatening messages over the last 4 years. It seems though that the EDL have now taken this up as an official tactic. A couple of weeks ago, the EDL intimidated the owners of a pub in Ipswich into cancelling a Love Music, Hate Racism gig, organised by 16 year old kids: 


A group was set up to ensure that this would not happen again, and that the gig would go ahead. An insider in the EDL told us that the EDL had a new tactic : 


 This is just one of the messages admins of “Stand Against the EDL in Ipswich & Suffolk” received. Ginge is one of the EDL organisers in Ipswich. image

Let’s not think this was isolated, who can forget the lovely leader of the EDL stalking a random man after picking a name from a phone book. 


Now the EDL and their good friends Casuals United have obviously decided they didn’t look pathetic enough bullying kids, so have threatened to demo a disco. Yep, a disco. 


After we reported this on our fb site one of our admins received this message: 


So it would seem EDL’s new intimidation tactics are based on the fact that some random people once got one of their events cancelled, so now they are going to try and do the same to any opposition. They are clever guys. 
  While it is easy to laugh at the EDL it has to be remembered that members of one of their offshoot groups were recently jailed for attacking anti racists. http://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/news/liverpool-news/right-wing-thugs-locked-up-after-6100974  They have been praised as heroes by many EDL members. We can also look to Greece and the Golden Dawn to see where these violent intimidation tactics can lead. We won’t be scared off and we won’t be intimidated. It is time though for the police and politicians to start taking note of these very real threats. Stand up and be counted.

Yesterday Tommy Robinson and Kevin Carroll, leaders of the English Defence League, went for a 24 mile walk round the perimeter of Tower Hamlets. Tommy had announced in a video posted on Thursday, that he was doing this to raise money to cover his costs from losing the judicial review he requested, over the decision to disallow EDL from marching past the East End Mosque in Tower Hamlets last Saturday.


The walk itself was largely uneventful. After a Muslim kryptonite bacon- powered sandwich, Keith and Orville toddled off about midday from Aldgate in STOP FGM teeshirts, followed by some ant-fascists. There was a lot of pantomime Getting A Bit Lost, which conveniently led to them crossing the border into Tower Hamlets, thus breaking Tommy’s bail conditions without him being arrested.


Around 5pm, Tommy tweeted that they had 8 miles to go, but then for reasons best known to themselves, they diverted to distant Woolwich, a place which no-one, any longer, gives a monkey’s if they visit or not, finally arriving back in Aldgate about midnight.

But what kind of walk was it?


Oh, a sponsored walk. Who were they raising money for though?


Right got it, it was another charidee walk. So why was the cash donated being paid into the EDL merchandising Paypal account, and not, say, one of several charities who campaign to end FGM? Why not carry a bucket with you, to collect for FGM on the way? Because, you know, otherwise people might think that Tommy was using the horrific abuse of women to scam his gullible followers into giving more money towards their legal fund. Surely not.


Apparently so. The drama scamarama doesn’t end there though. In Tommy’s video above, he claims that if he fails to pay the defendants costs in his unsuccessful judicial review within 28 days, he will be sent to jail for 28 days. What. A. Crock.


"Enforcement of judgement

When a judgement is obtained, the unsuccessful party may make payment voluntarily. If it does not, various enforcement procedures are available including arranging for assets to be seized and sold or obtaining a charging order over the unsuccessful party’s property. There is also the option of forcing the party into insolvency if the judgement sum is not paid.”

None of that sounds pleasant, but I don’t see any option which involves Tommy being banged up again, and why would it? Judicial reviews are a civil matter: no-one would ever bring one if it meant they were potentially going to prison if they lost. What with Tommy’s assets, as he is constantly bleeding telling us, being frozen, I doubt he has much to fear from the actual penalties either.

So EDL sheeple, what it comes down to, to paraphrase Tommy’s own words, is that Tommy doesn’t care, that the whole world is watching Tommy blatantly stitch you up.


Thanks to @MohammadFa15al.

Sport are Disbury. EDL fail to take responsibility for fascists in the ranks, shock.

http://exposingon.tumblr.com/post/60762181462/well-what-do-you-know-the-edl-just-cant-let-their  If you were paying attention a few days ago you would have seen us post this blog about the EDL welcoming back hate filled racist Arthur Disbury to the ranks. We decied to ask Tommy’s, main page admin and runner of EDL support group Hel Gower her response to this, as she is the person who cnfirmed his original expulsion. This was her response: image

As you can see she tried deflection and denial. So, here is where the pic was found, on the EDL main page. It’s still there, Expose stitch up is it Hel? image

Well what do you know? The EDL just can’t let their fascist nutters go

By Janie Jones

http://exposingon.tumblr.com/post/23722937115/the-edl-and-the-scary-case-of-arthur-disbury  Anyone remember this?
In May last year, a lifetime ago in the life of the EDL, Hel Gower, “Tommy’s PA” and general scapegoat for the EDL, confirmed that arch nutter, Arthur Disbury AKA Tony Davies, had been chucked out of the EDL,
Now, as they are a (dis)organisation without a membership, this is quite some feat.
      Disbury often spouts vile views and hatred from his Twitter account and youtube closed several of his accounts. He also has a starring role in our Criminals List http://edlcriminals.com/?s=arthur+disbury+. Not the kind of guy the EDL would want to be associated with you would think. Well. this is the EDL, Throwing him out was just for show. We spotted him at their Manchester demo, and here we have been given proof he was at the Tower Hamlets demo. http://i.imgur.com/4r2BfgX.jpg  Scream all you like about kicking out the Nazis, but you will be judged by those you choose to associate with. 

Thanks to Vicky Clementine
