As I said, I don't live over there so it's hard to make an informed decision. It seems like he's copped a far whack of hate over the years, but I'm honestly not sure if it's the media being untrustworthy?

But regardless of who this guy is, if the party people are getting about 100,000 votes, I would have thought 38,000 votes for an independent person is a good/encouraging result?

Were there any other independents running? What vote count did they get? I guess that would be a good gauge to work from?

I'm just always a bit suss when people get labeled "far right" online because what I've noticed over the last few years is that most of them are not what I would consider "far right". Not saying that this tommy guy is or isn't far right, I'm just hearing two wildly differing situations on what is the actual case with this guy.

What ever happened to genuine reporters and journalists?! Man, I miss the old days before the internet!

That's too bad, I was rooting for Tommy.

I'm sure he isn't going anywhere though. So they'll still have their work cut out for them trying to harass/silence him via government sanctioned means.


Notice how the OP and his fellows like to pin him as a 'far right extremist'. I see zero evidence of that unless putting his country first is extremist.


It's the mainstream/government approved narrative. It makes it so that no one dare agree with any of his criticisms lest they be labeled "Raaaaaaaa-cist".

It's an understandable fear, especially in the UK. Since it's entirely possible to like a post of his on facebook and wind up with bobbies at your door.


oh more of that bull crap, i asked in another thread from an american what i could not say on the internet and i was told i could not say this without the police coming round, guess what i posted it here on ATS and still no police but i was assured from an American I would be arrested

Regents park police post twitter pic of dangerous spoon they got off the street

you guys never believe the truth from us brits just what the papers tell you

I posted this on another thread on this topic and I think its just as relevant for this thread,

I am not a fan of Farage or Brexit but I have to say, to give credit where credit is due, I think that if Farage hadn't stepped in then we would have seen the entire Brexit cause getting hijacked by these alt-right thugs. I think that there was an attempt to create the same kind of hostile politics we see in America but in the UK political space that for the most part doesn't have a significant far-right/alt-right movement. If it hadn't been for the Brexit Party and Farage then I think UKIP and their new far-right leadership would have gained much more seats and thus legitimised their position in UK politics. Thankfully almost the opposite has happened.

The interesting message to takeaway from these results is that the British people overwhelming voted against the politics of Tommy and his band of political thugs. I might not like the man but I think we have to thank Farage for that, he has shown that you can back Brexit without having to side with the likes of Tommy.

Nice post, I can also add I back brexit without supporting either TR or NF, the sooner people realise the EU is a gravy train for the likes of them both the better, they do this not for the good of the British public but for the filling of their own pockets

There is a multitude of evidence available that shows Robinson up for what he is.

I'm not doing your homework for you.

The Pictures and Video paint a far clearer image of the Man than i ever could.

Form your own opinions.

And if you still think the Mans a great person i suggest its because your not a very nice one yourself. LoL LoL LoL

Completely ridiculous and no humans being should ever act in such a manner.

Have to ask yourself, all the same, why is it they want a hold of Tommy?

I notice as well he is rather quick to blame the Police, whilst requiring there assistance and protection.

What do you imagine would have happened to Robinson and his ilk if the Police had not been there to mitigate the madness?

Nothing good, ile tell you that.

The real reason Tommy did not win, as written by Tommy, this should be impartial at least

That would be because the deep state wants boris johnson in the top job being that he's an American first and foremost (born in usa), so being a far leftist boris and his associates clearly want to rip any seeds out of the ground that might flourish problems down the track .

Most think he's an elitist but he's left.


Please tell me you dont live in the UK, what you have just said is equal to Donald Trump is a democrat

He wasn't truly an independent as he was meant to be standing for UKIP but failed to fill in his forms correctly.

Coupled with his prior membership of the BNP (who polled 8% here in the past), he had the support of Democratic Lads Football Alliance and North West Infidels football hooligan firms yet only secured 2.2% of the vote and lost his deposit in contrast to his claims he'd 'stroll into Brussels like Connor McGregor' during the election.

What was you hoping Tommy could achieve in these EU elections? other than line his pockets, as A nation we have voted out of the EU, what were Tommys plans to fix it in such a short space of time? and could you explain them to me as you root for him.

Unfortunately, buddy, I'm simply looking out the window.


Yes i know, it's a F.U.B.A.R situation literally.

You can lead a horse to water but you can't make it drink.

But thats always the way for the enlightened minority, to be oppressed.



Taking the water at face value, without considering if its bad water...

Don't know about the water but Robinson is the one attempting to punt spurious snake oil via social media and the like.

Hence the contempt of court charges that landed him in the nick last time.

He's up to his neck in something, but it's not water that's for sure.

Far right extremist Stephen Yaxley Lennon, better known as Tommy Robinson, has failed in his bid to join the European Parliament.

Robinson, 36, became known to the public after co-founding right-wing activist group the English Defence League (EDL).


He stood as an independent candidate in the North West, winning just 38,908 votes - prompting guffaws of laughter when the result was read out in Manchester.

Far right extremist Tommy Robinson loses European Parliament bid



Well, imagine that. LoL

At least we can get something right.

And no luck Tommy 10 names as i think that's your deposit gone ta boot.

Or could it be that Yaxly-Lennon is an extreme far right scumbag who the electorate decided even they couldn't stomach making a protest vote for?

Johnson was a disaster as a foreign minister so there is nothing to suggest he would make a good prime minister, but he did give up his US citizenship quite a few years ago and he never lived there long enough to actually soak in the American attitude, bad hair and stupid comments I know suggest otherwise.

Disturbing how so many of our cousins admire a far right hooligan with a criminal history and a penchant for digging up hatred against anyone of a different race/religion isn't it? If they aren't careful that could start seeping into their political views in their own country........

He's a ""special case"" put it that way.

As to his political ideologies and racist views seeping into US politics.

Too late I'm afarid as that farm gate has been well open for quite some time.

Hence the misplaced admiration and support i suppose.

You've got problems with conprehension. I never said I think he's a great person. In fact, I've given no opinion on him whatsoever. Not one.

What I have asked is for you to back up your assertions. But, you keep saying to me, and to anyone else who has asked, that you aren't going to "do our research" for us.

Here is where your conprehension is lacking (it's lacking other places too). This isn't a question that requires research. You stated an opinion. You're required to give reasons for that opinion, since you are the one who has asserted it, many times.

ALL you have to do is say "I think he is racist bcause of ----------." THATS it. But you wont, and I think it's because you don't even know WHY you think what you think.

You don't even understand your own damn thoughts, dude.

Plus, you apparently don't know how to use a dictionary; or you do, but you don't understand what the words mean.

And by the way: LoL.

I ken a racist twat when i come across one.

I comprehend those just fine.


All i have to do, is whatever the hell i choose.

I'm not required to give nor do anything for you.

I think you might be confusing me with your Mum. LoL

Like i said do your own homework.

Imagine attempting to tell people they don't understand there own thoughts?

You sound like a poor Man's Sigmund Freud now.

Dictionary indeed, at least i understand how to use the search function. LoL

Your mood says it all sweetcheeks. x

Night, night. LoL

I mean, I guess police escorting a violent mob to the people they are targeting is A-ok with you. And if they hadnt been there? IDK, maybe they would have killed some children like the peace loving people they are, ya think? Or, maybe they would have had their asses handed to them like they should have.
