Foggy what do you mean "if" - you can't seriously believe that they are not.

Labour are running scared. He is getting too popular and the establishment are doing their best to close him down, it is clear to see. Facebook don't care about Tommy Robinson, in fact he brings millions of people to Facebook. But they are coming under constant pressure to regulate content. So they will do a trade off and this is what this is all about. The politicians have been putting pressure on Social media companies to self regulate, if they don't the government will bring in measures to restrict what they are doing. So in an effort to appease the authorities they have deleted Tommy Robinson. The political establishment have been worried about his rise and how that impacts on them and their parties ability to win votes. That is al they care about. So it is a trade off. Labour need the muslim vote and this is an attempt to pander to them.
The politicians don’t want the public to have access to an alternative view or the reality of what is going on and what people really think. They are worried about Tommy Robinson's ability to organise thousands of people for an event at the drop of a hat. They don't know how to control this. So they think that taking away his social media platform will have the desired effect.
On Facebook, Tommy Robinson wasn't big. He was gigantic.
The numbers alone tell the story.
According to analytics firm EzyInsights, whose founder, Steve El-Sharawy, was one of the first to appreciate the scale of Robinson's audience on Facebook, in the year leading up to his ban, Robinson, who had just over a million followers, generated 17.6 million clicks, likes and shares on the social network, an average of 47,600 a day.
By comparison, during the same period Theresa May generated 1.2 million Facebook clicks, likes and shares. Jeremy Corbyn generated only 5.7 million, despite having slightly more followers than Robinson.
If anything, those statistics underestimate Robinson's reach. They don't capture how many people watched his live-streamed videos, for instance, or for how long - although, in recent times, that had become one of his most popular outlets (remember him live-streaming his own arrest?).
Of the 55% of Britons who recognise the name Tommy Robinson, according to a recent YouGov poll, 37% have seen or heard one of his videos on social media - a number rising to 57% among 18 to 24-year-olds.
