okay so i'll start by saying fair play to leeds live and the independent for fighting the decision by the judge so that this can be reported. I'll agree it was a stupid thing to do as they are after any opportunity to close him down. The contempt of court is a fabricated charge to do just that.Fogg wrote: ↑Tue May 29, 2018 2:30 pmHe's not been banged up for being friendly / unfriendly to an Iman, it's got more to do with reporting on a trial with reporting restrictions in place, whilst serving a suspended sentence for the exact same thing.
He's essentially serving time for being stupid. It's everything to do with contempt of court and nothing to do with freedom of speech.
So the question has to be asked, why the reporting restrictions? i have my own views on that.
have you watch the hour long video of tommy robinson outside the court?
if not then this is the video
that was what he was arrested for. He was told it was for breach of the piece. they decided to change that and say contempt of court after because the video clearly shows he was not acting in an aggressive manner or causing a breach of the piece. If you watch the video he clearly asked the police officer if he was okay to record away from the steps of the court. he was told yes. he can clearly be heard calling the defendants involved as "alleged to have carried out the crimes they are on trial for. He was not reporting on the trial, part one of the trial had concluded and they were getting the verdicts. that was the reason he was at court that day. So it was nothing to do with prejudicing the jury. So if you have watched the video, now watch this video by SAS reporting outside Leeds Court - 29 in court over 170 charges of sexual exploitation
that was at the start of the trial. this is a link that includes all the photographs of the defendants on trial and what they are being tried for.

this is all in the public domain. Now tell me what Tommy Robinson did wrong apart from just turning up.
as for not being banged up for being friendly / unfriendly to an Imam - but he's a racist and an Islamophobe isn't he? is that not what our fair reporting press would have you believe.
