Tommy Robinson; Geert Wilders

Wilders to join London protest after Tommy Robinson’s family denied visit

Geert Wilders says the jailing of Tommy Robinson "remains a stain on the reputation of the United Kingdom" despite a media gag order being lifted. He plans to travel to Britain in support of protests to demand Robinson's release.

    Wilders stressed the dangers of being an Islam critic. “Nine years ago, I had the ‘privilege’ of being banned from entering the United Kingdom. Though the leader of a major democratically elected political party in the Netherlands, I am also an outspoken critic of Islam.

    “That is why I am on the death list of several Islamic organisations and have been forced to live under 24/7 police protection for almost fourteen years. And that is also the real reason why the then British government deemed me a danger to public security.”

    On Friday UK prison authorities cancelled, without explanation, Robinson’s family’s visit to the prison to confirm his safety. Gerard Batten, UKIP MEP, tweeted that the Robinson family’s visit to Hull Prison was cancelled with no explanation. The family expressed concern over Tommy’s safety.

    Batten warned that Robinson would be killed instantly if he was moved to Woodhill Prison where an Islamic gang are serving time for planning to kill English Defence League (EDL) members, a group to which Robinson once belonged.

    Robinson was arrested on 25 May outside Leeds Crown Court after live-streaming the ongoing trial of a Pakistani rape gang. He was arrested, brought before a judge, and sentenced within five hours. The judge also ordered a media ban on his arrest and imprisonment. British publications were forced to delete their news coverage on Robinson.

    “Such measures are common practice in North Korea and Saudi Arabia. It is sad to see how Britain, the cradle of Western democracy and the rule of law, is fast descending into tyranny,” Wilders pointed out.

    After massive protests and demonstrations in Whitehall, as well as a legal challenge by two publishers, and growing international support for Robinson, British authorities lifted the media ban. But Robinson has remained imprisoned, despite over half a million people signing a petition for his release, the Dutch politician noted.

    Members of the European Parliament have also called for the immediate release of Robinson. Leaders of the Europe of Nations and Freedom group, held a press conference last week, urging  the UK Government to act.

    Janice Atkinson, an independent UK MEP and Marcel De Graaff, Dutch MEP for the Party for Freedom, said Britain now resembles a police state where fake charges could be leveled at dissidents. “Do you really think that this case of Tommy Robinson is about contempt of court? It is about keeping this information away from the general public.”

    Atkinson denounced the lack of interest the British authorities had displayed when white families complained about the rape scourge. “It’s a pity that the Government, police, judiciary and local authorities didn’t act with such eagerness and speed for the girls who were systematically sexually abused for over 20 years by Muslim grooming gangs, as they did with Tommy Robinson,” Atkinson said.

    “Since 1997, with Blair’s Human Rights Act, the introduction of hate crime laws, slowly we have sleep walked into a near totalitarian state. It’s a lie that the public just don’t buy any more. From the working classes, to millennials, to those of colour, Sikh, Hindu, Christian or other, or of no faith. We support Tommy and demand his release. We have to for our children’s sake.”

    De Graaff said so-called “hate speech” laws were being used as legal instruments “to silence unwanted opinion, to cover up crimes, to silence political opposition. The so-called legal warfare of jihad.

    “Contempt of court has yet become another instrument in the toolset to silence the free press and free speech, to cover up horrendous crimes and the complicity of local and national authorities.”

    He said many crimes against women and children, mutilations and rapes of non-Muslim women, were being kept from the public in order to hide the true nature of Islam. De Graaff reminded the media of the case of Kevin Crehan.

    “The establishment is silencing the voices of those who unveil the truth. Kevin Crehan left a bacon sandwich outside a mosque. The court sentenced him to a year in prison, because this was considered as an act of terror. He was found dead within five months.” De Graaff said.
