THE leader of the English Defence League, Stephen Lennon, is on hunger strike and is claiming to be a “political prisoner of the state”, following his arrest after a protest in London on Saturday.

 

Mr Lennon, who also calls himself Tommy Robinson, was remanded in custody at Luton Magistrates Court this morning (Monday, September 5) after appearing charged with breaching bail conditions imposed on him by Blackburn Magistrates Court, where he is due to go on trial on September 29.

The trial relates to an EDL protest in the Lancashire town on April 2, during which it is alleged he assaulted a man, a charge he denies.

In response to an enquiry from Luton Today, EDL spokesperson Helen Gower said: “Tommy is on a hunger strike and will only be accepting water.”

She added: “He is now a ‘political prisoner’ of the state and isn’t prison food halal, something which Tommy feels very strongly about and campaigns against.”

Mr Lennon addressed EDL members in London on Saturday after travelling to the event disguised in a beard and hat, which the Jewish Chronicle website said was intended to make him look like a rabbi.

A Bedfordshire Police spokesman said he was arrested yesterday afternoon after going to Luton police station by appointment.

The EDL had been banned from marching through Tower Hamlets by Home Secretary Theresa May, and instead held a protest near Aldgate Tube station.

A counter-protest took place in Whitechapel Road, and the Metropolitan Police said a total of 60 people were arrested during the day. There were 16 people initially arrested for a variety of offences including affray, drunk and disorderly and assault on a police officer, and 44 people on a coach were later arrested on suspicion of violent disorder. The vehicle first stopped in Whitechapel Road and it is alleged passengers were involved in an altercation with local youths. Shortly after, the coach broke down outside Stepney Green Underground Station, and a further disturbance took place, a Met Police spokesman said.

  1. Simple. The British political establishment want Stephen Lennon dead, that’s why he’s been locked up. They’re just waiting for him to be conveniently stabbed by one of the Muslim prison gangs that dominate jails in the UK.

    Neither Geert Wilders, nor Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff, nor Jussi Halla-aho, nor Ezra Levant, nor any other victim of Islamically justified lawfare, were subjected to this: a deliberate attempt to bring about their bloody political assassination.

    Congratulations Britain! You now head the European league table for the authoritarian enforcement of multiculturalism, and the deliberate demographic and political displacement of the native population.

    My own country, now simply disgusts me.

  2. The Stazi stated, “Shortly after, the coach broke down outside Stepney Green Underground Station, and a further disturbance took place, a Met Police spokesman said.”

    Which is NewSpeak for, “State sponsored ‘anti-fascists’ attacked a stationary vehicle, dragged a petite woman off, and Marxists and Muslims smashed her face in then kicked the woman into the ground.”

    I hope this just makes thousands and thousands more people come out to support the EDL and throw up in the faces of those spineless hobknockers and clumberfists who have run England into an islamic/multiculti sewer

  4. If any harm comes to Tommy Robinson or god forbid he dies then the responsibility for that will be that of the effeminate and anti-British moron we have for a PM or Theresa May’s. It is soon coming to the point where the British government will have a British version of the IRA to contend with if they are so stupid as to block-off any political way of resolving our problems.

    Steven I am afraid that is going to be happening in all of Europe, not all European nations will fall to Islam but some will, and eventually will have to be liberated like all of Europe was during WWII.

    You are right. If the EDL is not listened to, it will continue to be a street protest organisation, but will also form a paramilitary wing and a political party. Unlike the IRA/Sinn Fein.

    Then what will the government do? Unlike Sinn Fein, such an organisation will swear total loyalty to the Crown.
