    The Daily Mail reported that Robinson has been appointed a “special adviser” will work as an aide of UKIP leader Gerard Batten.

    But former UKIP leader Nigel Farage warned against Robinson’s appointement saying the party would face “total and utter marginalisation” if it allowed him into the movement. Other senior UKIP figures however welcomed Robinson’s potential role in the party.

    Robinson was jailed and then later freed this year after reporting live on the trial of a Pakistani child rape gang on Facebook.

    Batten issued a statement on the appointment: “I have appointed Tommy Robinson to be a Personal Special Advisor on two subjects which he has great knowledge.

    “It is not necessary for him to be a Party member in order to assist me in this role. I am looking forward to working with him.”

    Batten, the anti-immigration party’s seventh leader in two years, has previously spoken out against Islam, calling the religion a “death cult”, and has suggested that UK Muslims should be asked to sign a declaration renouncing elements of the Quran.

    In newly announced policies, the party included a halt on immigration from Islamic countries, the possibility of separate jails for Muslim prisoners, the abolition of the category of “hate crimes”, as well as scrapping the Equalities and Human Rights Commission and the government’s equalities office.

    It has called Pakistani grooming gangs “one of the greatest social scandals in English history”.

    The UKIP manifesto says the activity of grooming gangs had been covered up for years due to “political correctness and the fear of identifying the vast majority of the perpetrators as Muslims”.

    Two key themes at the party’s recent conference, included “Islamic literalist and fundamentalist extremism”, and the threat to free speech “driven by the political doctrine of cultural Marxism”.
