Tommy Robinson freed... temporarily

A Court of Appeal rules that "the judge at Leeds should not have commenced contempt proceedings that day" so Tommy Robinson is now free on bail.
Former English Defence League (EDL) leader Tommy Robinson was freed on bail today after his 13 month jail term for contempt of court was quashed - but his case will be re-heard again.

The far right activist, 35, has been in prison for two months after being locked up in May for filming defendents involved in a criminal trial at Leeds Crown Court and broadcasting the footage to 250,000 people on Facebook.

The activist, whose real name is Stephen Christopher Yaxley-Lennon, successfully appealed against his 13-month jail term for contempt of court claiming it was 'excessive' and the hearing was 'rushed'.

Lord Burnett said today the Court of Appeal was allowing his appeal 'in respect of the committal for contempt at Leeds Crown Court' - but said the case would have to be be heard again.

Robinson was not present for the ruling and is expected to be released from prison later today.
Of course, the message has been sent: some of those presently in control of the British legal system will seek to protect Pakistani pedophiles preying on British schoolgirls even at the expense of the law.

I'm pleasantly surprised he's still alive. I thought they would have him killed the moment the protests around parliment broke for tea and crumpets.

God bless Tommy Robinson. I hope he goes after this kangaroo court judge and is able to humiliate him into recusal at the very least.

The good news is he's alive and well, and it looks like the globalists are starting to understand making Tommy a martyr would be a very bad thing for them.

The is something deeply wrong with the minds of the British ruling class. They absolutely fear and loathe their native population and really don't much try to hide it.

They are going to let this retrial hang over his head. Their next move will be to continually delay the retrial while putting strict restrictions on him in the mean time as a condition of bail, making it impossible to do any activism. This is neutralizing his voice, indefinitely, through other means.

Yes. But every time they take an action such as this it makes it possible to identify more of those in the group.

The one who had acted most justly in this whole affair is Tommy Robinson. Reporting on a trial--from a public area--has benefits. It allows the public to see the workings of the system, and the public could critize and improve on it. Coverage of the trial also shows the failures of law enforcement and politicians in the grooming gang scandal.

@16 " Coverage of the trial"

The thing *I* don't get (actually I do: "Narrative") is: this was NOT a trial Tommy was at; this was a SENTENCING of rapist-filth who had ALREADY been convicted! (Can hardly "prejudice the jury" AFTER they've done their work? Where are the Brit Anons looking into this likely-a-pedo judge?)

There was a SIKH ... "minister" (whatever their religious authorities are called) ... ALSO reporting the exact same way at the exact same time in the exact same place! There is a video pointing out that he was doing the same thing -- and NOT carefully using "alleged" in his descriptions of the rapists -- as Tommy was careful to do. (Even though they'd been convicted!)

What the HELL is wrong with the British sheep!? (I am glad to see a few beginning to act up, act out... but damned few!)

"The is something deeply wrong with the minds of the British ruling class. They absolutely fear and loathe their native population and really don't much try to hide it."

That's because ALL of the nobility ranks above the Barons (which is barely above Mayor, and is below "Count" -- the ruler of a County) are from the Norman(*) Conquest. The Normans have never seen themselves as even English, and God FORBID British.


They spent the first few centuries on British soil conducting ALL of their communications in French! and having closer relations with the Gauls than with the Britons, Scots, Welsh, Angles or Saxons. They despised the Welsh so much that Edward the First ("Longshanks") set things up so that the heir-apparent (1st in line to be King) would always hold the title of Prince of Wales -- for the specific reason of learning how to oppress a sub-population (the Welsh) before becoming King of England (and even before Edward, the Norman Kings had the goal of ruling the entire Island).

Eventually, the Norman Plantagenet dynasty lost the British/English crown, but the rest of the hereditary nobility all across England are still Norman families, who still utterly despise the Britons, Welsh, Cornish, Angles, Saxons, etc.


[This, I believe, explains why English-speaking women have a fascination with learning French -- because the language was tied to the ruling classes after the Normans took over

(*) The Normans were Vikings ("norse men") from Norway who had settled on the northern coast of France

As he IS still alive, refusing to back down is the only choice he has that doesn't involve spending the rest of his life as the lowest peon in all of Britain... which is utterly unacceptable to a person with his sort of personality. So for Tommy, outright rebellion until victory or incapacitation/death is his only path.

They surrendered when they let themselves be cowed into complete legal disarmament over ONE crazy schoolgirl with a gun.

Remember -- "How many dead school children is it worth to keep the 2nd Amendment? Every single one of them." Because the alternative is what we see in the UK -- a government which doesn't stop at thumbing it's nose at the people, merely passively failing to protect the borders -- no, they've stepped it up to actively importing the invaders now"

Desdichado disagrees with us on this. I think that the Ruling Class started as foreign invaders, and never really got past that. Sometimes, a thousand years isn't enough time to assimilate foreigners.

The Ruling Class in Britain may no longer identify as Norman, but it's obvious they don't identify as English. They would rather have Paki pimps than Englishmen on the streets. Paki pimps not only don't object to perversion and satanism, they are happy to enable it.

What is it with these people and "real names"? Do they think it gives them some kind of magical power over their enemies?

I'm pretty sure that no journalist ever has written a paragraph starting with, "Tom Cruise, whose real name is Thomas Cruise Mapother IV"...

I guess it's intended as a subtle form of doxing, just to prove that they can and thus that they're the ones in power? I don't think the demonstration is effective when everyone already knows the information.

Blogger DonReynolds August 01, 2018 1:16 PM  

In the American system, contempt of court is used to compel compliance, but there seems to be an important difference. In the USA, the accused has the ability to comply with the orders of the court. For example, there would be no point in jailing someone (indefinitely) for failing to pay a billion dollar fine if there was no possibility of it ever being paid. Contempt of court is reserved for jailing those who refuse to pay a fine when they have the cash in their pocket. The accused literally has the ability to free himself by doing what the court has ordered.

In the Tommy Robinson situation, the court is unhappy because of trial publicity, but I do not see any possibility of Robinson un-doing what he has already done. A better solution would be for the judge to declare a mistrial and order a change of venue and new jury. Whatever purposes the court hoped to accomplish by conducting a secret trial are no longer possible and Robinson does not have the ability to fix that.

I think elite class in western societies in general want to have unrestrained lives that they see traditional western culture and societal mores as restricting them, so they embrace foriegn cultures as a means of ridding their society of this tradition. They foolishly ignore that these foreign cultures, once entrenched, will not have other beliefs that will restrict them, or even completely do away with them.

The are maintained in this delusion by their wealth and status, and are currently mostly protected from the consequences of their delusion. (The rapes that are happening aren't happening to them or their children, etc)

I guess the one consolation from all of this is that this isn't the first time this has happened. All advanced civilizations eventually fall to their nomadic neighbors in exactly same way through out history. The elites become so decadent that they grow weary of defending their civilization.

"The Normans have never seen themselves as even English, and God FORBID British."

Why should they? Too many keep thinking the Normans were French because they spoke French. Of course, you know they were Vikings, who were given part of the land on the coast of France if they would agree to stop burning Paris in raids and become Christian. (That part seemed to work.) The rest of Normandy, the Vikings took by the sword.

"Eventually, the Norman Plantagenet dynasty lost the British/English crown, but the rest of the hereditary nobility all across England are still Norman families, who still utterly despise the Britons, Welsh, Cornish, Angles, Saxons, etc."

A large portion of the invading Norman army in 1066 was not Norman or Viking. A third to half of William's force were Swiss and Burgundian mercenaries.

My own family Swiss name was originally Reginwald, but was Anglicized as Reynolds. That is why every Reynolds in the world came from one place....Devon, where they were posted by William to guard the Welsh frontier. The better lands were parceled out to the Normans.

While the nobility of Britain still pretty much retains the Norman (and Norman allies shade), the Royals ceased to be Norman centuries ago. The present Royal family is most certainly Hanover and Mecklenburg (North Germany)....which they have tried to distance themselves from during WWI by changing their name from Saxe-Coburg-Gotha (dutchy in central Germany/Bavaria) to Windsor. But that only became their name through Prince Albert and only then when Queen Victoria died in 1901.

Not true when the judge believes the defendant has funds he doesn't actually have. Most infamous case is of H. Beatty Chadwick in a divorce case, of course, he was only released after 14 years because a judge "determined his continued incarceration had lost its coercive effect and would not result in him surrendering the money." Or more like they got embarrassed to be holding a political prisoner for so long. We also see this happening with orders to cough up decryption keys that defendants claim to have forgotten.

What we don't see behind the scenes could be one of two things:

1. worst case: those complicit in the rape gangs coverups were able to hide their tracks, co-opt others etc and we'll expect more steady dissolution of citizen power.

2. best case: certain powerful groups have had enough, have reviewed the evidence and MOST IMPORTANTLY, have found the lack of contrition and humility in the cabal and are putting things in motion.

It doesn’t matter if language changes; if you still see yourselves in a different beam of light culturally, you won’t “assimilate”. Assimilation has never been a practical goal—no education system can give an immigrant a family and heritage that is native, nor can it sing it the native lullabyes at his mother’s breast, nor can it instill something like time preference.

Blogger eclecticme August 01, 2018 8:57 PM  

I will post this in a couple parts.

I was able to find the transcript of the original hearing, in which the judge said there were "no conditions" for the suspended sentence but warned Tommy he could find himself in prison for "doing the same thing again." The judge said that she had the power to prohibit filiming inside the courthouse and "in the entire precinct" but never prohibited that.

I watched the entire hour plus video of Tommy which landed him in prison. He asked the police if he was far enough away etc. He used language similar to the US media e.g. "alleged", "presumed innocent", etc. He talked about the alleged rapists on trial and the Muslim grooming problem in general.

Tommy said the trial was multi part and so he could not report on the results of each part until all parts were done.

Blogger eclecticme August 01, 2018 9:14 PM  

The MSM keeps reporting that there is a blanket ban on reporting on criminal cases in progress, and on this trial in particular, and on Tommy in this trial. However, they NEVER provided a source for these 'laws' which do not seem to exist in writing.

If a court order or written law said "thou shalt not film defendants outside a courthouse" or "Tommy shall not report on this trial or be within 100 yeards of the trial" then I would not have made this post.

I cannot find any bright line established anywhere so Tommy could know what he could and could not do. It seems like some USSR law aganst "counter revolutionary speech." I expected British judges to more exact in their language and not so intellectually sloppy.

Blogger eclecticme August 03, 2018 1:12 PM  

I should add to my above two posts. I only now learned that I had not seen the full trasncript of the earlier hearing. An earlier reporting restriction on the trial was referred to by the judge so it does exist although I have still not seen it. The two links below are better than most, although the second site is snarky.
