No shame for Tommy Robinson

As far as I can tell, the BBC is not expressing much glee over Tommy Robinson’s failure to become an MEP. It seems to be leaving that up to like-minded ‘journalists’ at the Guardian and the Independent.

Guardian and Independent of what, one might ask.

As I surfed for UK results of the EU elections, the BBC informed me that the UK European Union Party got 33 576 votes, the Animal Welfare Party got 25 232, the Women’s Equality Party got 23 766, the Independent Network got 7 641 and the Socialist Party of Great Britain got 3 505 votes. All of them were trounced by Tommy Robinson with 38 908 votes.

Then I saw that Independents got a total of 80 280 votes. The BBC offered no breakdown of these votes so I turned to the excellent coverage by Wikipedia to see if Tommy had any close competitors among them:

East Midlands

East of England

London

North East

North West

Northern Ireland

Scotland

South East

South West

Wales

West Midlands

Yorkshire and the Humber

He didn’t. In fact, his closest competitor was an Independent in Scotland with 6 128 votes and all of the 11 Independents who stood in London only managed to share just over 7 000 votes.

No shame for Tommy Robinson. In fact, those who strive to bring him down, including that most-trusted broadcaster, are the ones who should be ashamed.

    The Far Left is frightened of Mr Robinson so with the help of the Far Left BBC and it’s media comrade it has built a very strong negative brand for him .

    It’s just straight hate . No mention of views or contemporary activities or speeches . I heard that gutter dweller – Jess ‘ I’m a Brummy Me ‘ Phillips being allowed to just dismiss TR by the BBC at ‘ vermin ‘ and they moved on.

    He really is a prophet in the wilderness who does something -which I admire because of the personal cost to him . I on the other hand hide behind a false badge here and spout off .

    Nice to be first for a change – so that’s what it feels like -life changing 😎

      Fedup2,

      Dunno about the “false flag” Fedup2. To me, it just means you are also fed up, and I’m sure with good reason!

      I don’t think any of us are hiding here. Big Brother is watching.

      You mean Fedup2 isn’t your real name?

      Next you’ll be telling us Tommy Robinson isn’t his real name!

    Free speech should be regarded as a cornerstone of civic life. Instead the modern way is to prescribe what can and can’t be said.

    Alastair Campbell wasted no time in using his State Broadcaster platform to deride Tommy Robinson on Sunday night. Where was the right of reply?

    The BBC would have us believe that the streets of Nairobi are safer than London, which is why Somali families in London are sending their teenage boys “home”, except of course that Nairobi is not home; their own country , Somali, is one of the most dangerous in the world.

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-48353960

    Nairobi is not much better either, but the theme is that these innocent lads (which they may be) will be much safer there than in London. The reason they feel unsafe in London is largely of their own making: 3% of all foreign nationals in UK prisons are Somali although they make up only 0.15% of the population. Somalis are steeped in inter-clan and inter-tribal violence and they have taken to London’s street gangs like ducks to water. Good try from the BBC to depict London as more dangerous than East Africa.

    You must understand that the BBC are diametrically opposed
    to Tommy Robinson who objects to Asian Muslim men
    predominately of Pakistani origin raping white English under age
    girls.
    The BBC would stand on a “Jimmy Savile” political ticket!!
    And by the way 39,000 is a very respectable total for somebody
    standing as an independent. He got just 10,000 less than the
    other new party ChangeUK !!!

    Shouldn’t the 9% of Tory votes , led by the renowned EUrosceptic Danniel Hannon be added to the pro Brexit votes ?

    The only way to find out the lay of the land is

    Leave the EU

    Scotland to become independent
    Scotland to apply for EU membership ( so that all six of their MEPs play a leading role )
    All EU immigration is sent up to Scotland
    The EU tell the Scots the terms , costs and conditions for membership.
    The Scots vote whether to remain independent or join the EU
    Everyone lives happily ever after.

    Adding to the maths gymnastics being done by remainers to somehow say they won the eu elections.

    The truth is, vegetarians won the vote.
    The greens support vegetarianism so this means that every other party that voted the same as the greens did must also support vegetarianism, the same way that everyone who didn’t vote for TBP was counted as pro eu.
    Therefore, the majority of voters voted for vegetarianism.

    Remainer logic!

      I remember several years ago when I read about the EU voting procedure and thinking this doesn’t sound fair because it favours political parties, not individual candidates. Typical EU, using its power to limit democracy to something they can better manage.

      I think a more fair method would be that for each voting region; eg the North West of England; all the candidates names should be on the ballot paper. If that method had been adopted, there’s a good chance Tommy would have gained a seat.

      theisland,

      That is a very interesting way of looking at it. He’s a guy on his own, so why shouldn’t the rest of them be evaluated in the same way.

    True Too, I’d say that Tommy Robinson did remarkably well, especially given the forces working against him.

    I hope his performance encourages him to try again, and that each campaign will probably help him devise ways to neutralise the toxic effect of the MSM and their lickspittles such as the far-left bbc collective.

      Yes, if you take into account the incredible opposition he faces every day, it was even more of an achievement.

        Disgusting performance by the ruling elite to ignite the supression of all Media in all directions against T Robinson’s efforts to get his message across. Frankly we should all be outraged, sickened at such a demonstration of undemocratic behaviour. The unseeing hand of control slithering across this nation is very worrying or should be for its citizens.

          tarien,

          Absolutely, and the headquarters of that control is in far-left California where the computer nerds have gone crazy having realized the power they hold and the ability they have to influence and control events across the planet.

          With click or two of a mouse, little propagandists like Mark Zuckerberg, with no moral fibre, can deny Tommy Robinson his voice among his million-plus supporters on Farcebook.

    He finished 8th, with 2.2% of the vote, lost his deposit and left the count after an hour. He’s demanded a 2nd vote.

    I guess that’s a victory like David Vance’ s 1,856 votes in 2010?

    Just one other point. As an “expert” on football corruption who
    has helped FIFA in the past( now that’s an anachronism.)Actually
    the football corruption scandal that his just hit Spain is nothing
    new. It’s been going on for years.
    It would not surprise me in the least if Tommy Robinson got
    more than twice than his 39000 total listed votes.
    Ok from filling Goodison Park to filling Old Trafford would of
    not given him an MEP spot for next season. But the way Everton
    were playing at the end of the season compared to Man Utd
    was very encouraging.
    Tommy go for it next season at the General Election. You may well
    win one of those Lancashire seats. Or why not LUTON they
    have just been promoted. One of the last things I would like
    to see before I go to the betting shop in the sky from my heart failure., is the BBC having to show you being elected !!!

      ”As far as I can tell, the BBC is not expressing much glee over Tommy Robinson’s failure to become an MEP.”‘

      It’s not that they didn’t want to crow about it , it’s just that they couldn’t, as the MSM have no platformed him to airbrush him from the public mind,
      Only something more monumental (in their eyes) like milkshake
      attack would temp them to break the silence
      They used the same tactic in 2009 after the BNP won 2 MEP
      seats, after initialy and ridiculously stating ‘it was bad day for democracy ‘ they switched tactics choosing hardly ever to mention them again,
      Result a few years later many people thought they had disbanded,

        Eddy Booth,

        I’m still waiting with great anticipation for the Panorama on Tommy Robinson that the BBC petulantly said it would still produce after Tommy’s brilliant Panodrama sting, from which the BBC is unlikely to ever recover.

        I scrolled through a whole bunch of Panorama episodes and can’t find a single mention of Tommy Robinson or ‘Takedown’ or Stephen Yaxley-Lennon.

        If the BBC thinks it can quietly sneak away with its tail between its legs, having pledged to screen the Tommy Panorama, it has another think coming.

        Yes, Tommy has been deplatformed by Farcebook and Twatter and others, but people have long memories, he still has widespread support and there are alternatives to the ‘alternative media’ – which has now become the establishment.

    As Alastair Campbell has been chucked out of the Labour party for claiming he supported the Lib Dems then so should M. Heseltine be chucked out of the Tory party for also supporting in the EU Elections the Lib Dem party. That man has been a thorn in the side of the Brexit process continually-should be stripped of his titles and all else-Maggie was right about him- pompous ar………
