[192] Other criminal convictions a b "Police officers hurt at 'free Tommy Robinson' protest". BBC News. 9 June 2018 . Retrieved 24 April 2021. Tommy Robinson is a living legend and a folk hero to thousands of working class followers for his bravery in the face of constant persecution by the establishment in one of the most blatant miscarriages of justice in modern times.

Tommy Robinson, political activist, journalist and now a best selling author of his autobiography, Enemy of the State.In July 2018, Middle East Forum, a US think tank led by Daniel Pipes and described as "fomenting anti-Muslim sentiment", said it had been funding rallies in Robinson's support and paying legal costs in his appeal against his prison sentence.

Gayle, Damien; Ntim, Zac (11 June 2018). "Protesters charged after pro-Tommy Robinson rally in London". The Guardian. On 23 February 2019, Robinson held a rally in MediaCityUK outside BBC's Salford, Greater Manchester offices to protest against BBC's investigative current affairs programme Panorama and its presenter John Sweeney. During the rally, Robinson launched his film Panodrama that was broadcast on a large screen to the protesters estimated to be 4000 people, showing undercover footage of Sweeney, filmed by Robinson's former aide Lucy Brown. UKIP leader Gerard Batten spoke in support during the rally. Robinson said the aim of the protest was to make a stand "against the corrupt media" and called for the BBC licence fee to be scrapped. Concurrently, about 500 people attended a counter-protest by anti-fascists. [171] In response, the BBC made an announcement that it strongly rejects any suggestion that its journalism is biased. Confirming that an upcoming Panorama episode was being prepared to investigate Robinson and his activities, it added that all programmes the BBC broadcasts follow BBC's "strict editorial guidelines". Regarding some of Sweeney's remarks during Robinson's Panodrama film exposé, the BBC announcement added: "Some of the footage which has been released was recorded without our knowledge during this investigation and John Sweeney made some offensive and inappropriate remarks, for which he apologises."

Much of this book is about Tommy's experience with the English justice system. He claims that because of his politically unpopular views he becomes an "enemy of the state." The police use every chance they get to arrest, harass, and make his life miserable. Most books happen somewhere else, while you can read in your 'space space', as it where. Not so with this book. Tommy Robinson shines a bright light on the hidden and dark side of our very own democratic societies. There is very little to feel good about when you have finished his story.Murray, Douglas (19 October 2013). "Tommy Robinson: Double standards, not fear of diversity, provoked the EDL". The Spectator. Archived from the original on 17 October 2013 . Retrieved 17 October 2013. The first time I came across this man was on the now-defunct television programme BBC3: Free Speech. Something quite odd was going on. Several members of the audience were telling him he was racist and he kept saying 'Please tell me something I've said that's racist'. The response from the audience member was then to simply scream that he was racist as if that meant they'd won the argument.

Robinson lodged an appeal initially against the proceedings at Leeds but much later against convictions both at Canterbury and Leeds. [163] The Court of Appeal agreed to hear Robinson's appeal out of time because Robinson had been held in "effective solitary confinement", which had made it difficult for Robinson to have meetings with his lawyers. [164] The matter came before the Lord Chief Justice and two others at the Court of Appeal on 18 July 2018. Robinson said that he had not admitted the charges at Leeds nor had he been given a chance to apologise. His lawyer said that his initial contempt hearing was flawed; the details of the charge were not clear. He argued that his sentence was unfair. [165] The court issued its ruling on 1 August 2018. In essence, the appeal against the proceedings at Canterbury failed and the appeal in respect of the Leeds' proceedings succeeded.Henry Dyer (30 September 2020). "Labour MP Naz Shah Sues Brexit Campaigners Leave EU over Grooming Gangs Slur". Byline Times . Retrieved 10 August 2023. Dearden, Lizzie (21 January 2019). "Tommy Robinson 'used coordinated gang' to surround MP's surgery at Glasgow library, Stewart McDonald says". The Independent. The court analysed the differences that arise from a prison sentence for a criminal offence and those from committal to prison for contempt. Of the mistakes made at Canterbury, the Court of Appeal learnt that those representing Robinson had been aware of the procedural errors. "It lies ill in the mouth of an appellant to complain of the failure of the court below to follow the appropriate procedural steps when that failure was fully appreciated at the time and remained deliberately uncorrected for tactical reasons and collateral advantage." [139] :54 In respect of the Leeds contempt the court stated, "We are satisfied that the decision at Leeds Crown Court to proceed to committal to prison so promptly and without due regard for Part 48 of the Rules gave rise to unfairness. There was no clarity about what parts of the video were relied upon as amounting to contempt, what parts the appellant accepted through his counsel amounted to contempt and for what conduct he was sentenced."
