http://twitpic.com/b6d858 (screeny in more readable form)Back in September Tommy Robinson of the EDL flew into New York to speak at a meeting with Zionist nutjob Pamela Gellar and her insane tea party friends. “What?” said we, “how did he get in” we asked. The thing is, Tommy had been refused entry 2 years before when the EDL tried to hijack 9/11 commemorations The US it seemed didn’t want convicted criminal Yaxley in their country. So how was he there this time? Well, it would seem the Americans would like to know the same thing. Following his arrest at the weekend Tommy was further arrested for allegedly fraudulently entering the US. Of course the EDL, being the EDL have spun this as a political move and have used it to further exalt Tommy as the saviour of all things English. Oh yeah they want your money too. Tommy is not a political prisoner, he is not a martyr to the cause, he is a man who repeatedly breaks the law and then cries when told he can’t. The EDL like to bang on about people living by our laws. perhaps they should try it sometime.
Almost 24 hours following the arrest of 53 of the EDL’s most prominant members, including “leaders” Steven Lennon and PCC candidate Kevin Carroll, the EDL’s main Facebook page and Tommy’s “right hand” Hel Gower have come out with differing accounts. Hel’s claims Tom Tom and friends were simply on a lads day out. EDL say they were, even more implausibly, on a photo shoot. Given that at least 3 anti groups were given info prior to the event by a number of people involved in the EDL we know these to both be untrue. 24 hours and that’s the best you can do? come on EDL you need to work harder.
Just been reminded of this, casuals claimed it was a static demo. http://casualsunited.wordpress.com/2012/10/21/update-on-the-53-edl-arrests/
Yesterday the EDL leader and 52 other EDL high ups were arrested by police from the back of a lorry on the M1. It has now been reported that they have all been released on bail but with conditions that include not entering east London which will put next weeks demo in Walthamstow an extremely difficult event to pull off.
It now comes to light, from Tommy’s Twitter that he was also arrested on suspicion of assault and again for fraud over his trip to the states to speak at an anti Muslim conference.
Looks like the law may have finally caught up with Tommy and with a fraud and money laundering case already hanging over his head, not to mention a suspended sentence things must be looking a little bleak. Looks like Death, prison or Glory may be limited to the prison option in the very near future.
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-20021478 the BBC report on the arrests.
Latest update is that Tommy has been remanded.

BREAKING: 53 EDL members, believed to include leader Stephen Lennon, arrested in police operation on M1 today. Details in @DailyStarSunday
looks like the #EDL group unplugged let the cat out of the bag about EDL’s plans to hide in lorries and attack a mosque. Shame the police aren’t as stupid as the edl think. This could be very very bad for Lennon and Carroll.
According to our info all key players in EDL knew about the plan and most RO’s were involved. Interesting timing that Tommy was dropped from BF last week so as not to fuck up cousin Kev’s chances.
Tommy Robinson has resigned from British Freedom. Political life not eciting enough or was he pushed before his money laundering court case?
