    Wilders, who won second place in the Dutch national elections last year, told the crowd he had come to Britain to warn the British government: “For every Tommy whom you imprison, thousands will rise up.”

    Thousands of people all over the world were demonstrating in front of British embassies on Saturday. The Dutch politician called Robinson a freedom fighter.

    “Listen to us Theresa May, listen to us Sajid Javid, listen to us Sadiq Khan,” Wilders continued, provoking loud boos from the crowd.

    “Our governors sold us out with mass immigration, with Islamisation, with open borders. We are almost foreigners in our own land,” he said. “And if we complain about it, they call us racists or Islamophobes — but I say, no more.”

    Wilders said that the Netherlands was a free country today because “British brave boys and men, people like you, liberated us”.

    He reminded his British audience that British soldiers were called them “Tommies” then. “But today your government has put a Tommy in jail. Freedom is behind bars. Tommy is behind bars.” He demanded the immediate release of Robinson.

    “Tommy is in jail while the British state looked the other way for years, when thousands — thousands — of English children and girls were brutally raped by those grooming gangs.

    “They were your daughters. The daughters of the brave Tommies. The daughters of the hard-working, decent people of Britain, who made this beautiful country so great.

    “But for years, and years, the police, the politicians, the prosecutors did nothing, and looked the other way.

    “They refused to listen to the victims. They arrested fathers who tried to liberate their daughters. They left children in the hands of those gangs.”

    He warned European leaders that they will soon be defeated by the people: “Every day, more people are joining our cause. The cause of freedom. Every day our members grow, and our demands are right and just.”

    Robinson, English Defense League co-founder, was arrested on May 25 on spurious charges outside Leeds crown court while he was streaming a video outside the courthouse. He was summarily sentenced to 13 months in prison.

    Robinson’s live stream was being watched by more than 10 000 people at the time.

    The former EDL leader is at the forefront of the counter-jihad. As a correspondent for the Canadian political website The Rebel Media, he was convicted of contempt of court in 2017 for using a camera to film the Pakistani defendants in a child rape case inside Canterbury Crown Court and received a suspended sentence.

    “There is a reporting restriction on this case,” Tommy told The Independent at the time. “I have to be super careful, you see, because when I was coming to these court cases, part of what the police did was they dawn raided me and they put me on a contempt of court charge, which would mean that I could face prison.”

    While quietly filming on 25 May, he was nevertheless arrested for “disturbing the peace”.

    The former EDL leader’s supporters launched a an online petition on change.org to free him since they fear for his life. Muslim prison gangs have repeatedly threatened to kill Robinson.
