|I’m back in London at the Old Bailey. It’s the most serious court house in the United Kingdom, where many of the worst murder and terrorist trials are held.
But today they’re sentencing a citizen journalist named Tommy Robinson, for the sin of reporting from outside a trial of child rapists last year.
Tommy has already served 10 weeks in solitary confinement for this non-crime. And today he’ll most likely be sent back for more.
He’s the first journalist to be imprisoned in the UK for contempt of court since the 1940s. There’s no other way to put it: he’s a political prisoner, being punished for embarrassing the UK government by discussing the politically incorrect subject of Muslim rape gangs that target indigenous British girls as young as 11.
I’ll be in the court house live-tweeting the proceedings. You can follow that at www.twitter.com/ezralevant And I’ll also be uploading video reports at www.RealReporters.uk.
I won’t lie — I’m very pessimistic. I think the UK government not only wants Tommy to be sent away to prison to shut him up, but I truly believe they’d be happy if he were murdered in prison by the Muslim gangs that dominate them. I hate to be so morbid, but I think that’s how bad it is in the UK these days.
I’ll keep you posted. And if you can, please help chip in to cover the cost of my frequent travels back to the UK to cover Tommy’s trials. Unlike the BBC, I obviously don’t take any money from the British government, so I rely 100% on viewers like you. If you can chip in a few dollars or a few pounds, please do, by clicking here.
Thanks very much, and good luck to us all.
P.S. Thanks for your help — I’m afraid I’m going to have to keep coming back to the UK to report on these court cases until Tommy’s free. Click here if you can help me cover the cost of my economy-class airfare.
P.P.S. Yesterday I met David Kaye, the United Nations Special Rapporteur on Freedom of Opinion and Expression. (I had no idea there was such a thing.) I asked him about Tommy’s case — he said he didn’t know much about it, but he was interested, and that he would consider an investigation into the UK government’s handling of his case.
