I don’t pretend for a minute that he is the world’s most reliable witness – though there is far more dishonesty amongst adherants of The Narrative – and I’m not on-board with the Tommymania that certain of the more plebeian right embrace.
But this seems wrong. It seemed wrong when he was whisked from the street to a sentence in prison in a matter of hours, and it seems wrong now.
When he was originally sent to prison, I donated £100 to his legal support fund.
I didn’t feel in the slightest bit miffed when I later found out he’d recently moved into a quite expensive house.
Robinson is an imperfect hero for sure, but he’s out there, keeping some very valid issues in the public consciousness, and he’s paying a heavy price for his bravery, through imprisonment, harassment, continual negative press and character assassination.
But he’s the only one doing what needs to be done – none of the mainstream media or politicians have got the balls to openly speak truths that are self-evident, and so all we have is a figure like Robinson to coalesce round in the UK media-political environment.
And so I may well dontate again, because it’s what I can meaningfully do.
