    I know theres people who love or hate him but this is an interview TR has done with a SKY reporter today. Very informative about the situation in the UK, far right groups, whats going on with the public, government. For me he speaks a lot of sense.

    Please dont comment unless you watch the video first

    23 minutes of Tommy Robinson? No thanks.

    The man is a tireless self promoter, everything out of his mouth is "I" this or "me" that. On top of this he's a lout with convictions for fraud and football hooliganism. He tries to portray himself as some sort of ordinary working class lad speaking out but the reality is he has had long standing connections with numerous racist far-right organisations including the BNP and the British Freedom Party as well as the later violent street groups like the EDL.

    Aside from Robinson himself being a criminal and a chancer, the far right these days are simply appealing to anti-Islamic sentiment in order to gain traction and capitalise on wider discontent within working class communities. They're no longer able to readily sell the notion that blacks are genetically inferior or that Jews control the world so instead they have a new scapegoat now they can use as the focalise point for their rubbish.

    The names of the organisations change, and the target sometimes changes - but it's the same old nonsense and demographic that drove the BNP, the National Front and the BUF before it.

    OK I get it you dont like him so no need to comment anymore. It might educate you if you watch it though

    No because I have better things to do with my time than listen to a blatant racist spout his usual soundbites abiut an entire religion on the basis that he doesn't like them. His hatred of Muslims goes back to his school days, obviously has a chip on his shoulder.
