The Martyrdom of Tommy Robinson
Whatever crime Robinson may have committed on paper, everyone with eyes to see knows that the real crimes for which he is being punished are these: being white working class; speaking home truths about the problems posed to social cohesion in Britain by Islam when the Establishment's position remains that this is impolite and that we should all bury our heads in the sand and pretend that those problems don't exist.
So long as this state of affairs continues, the gulf between ordinary people and the political elite is going to grow and grow. It's the kind of rift from which revolutions emerge. Tommy Robinson is already the people's hero. If he becomes the people's martyr too, then it will be a mistake the Establishment most certainly comes to regret.
