After Tommy Robinson's release from prison yesterday, I travelled from London to Luton to congratulate Tommy in person.
It was glorious to see him reunited with his beautiful wife and three lovely children. Those kids — who missed their dad so painfully — had smiles on their faces that I will never forget.
Tommy invited me to join the family for dinner, but I didn’t want to intrude in their private time. But I did ask him to sit down with me for ten minutes, to tell the world how he was doing.
And as I listened, my joy turned to sorrow, and then to rage.
Because Tommy was physically and psychologically abused in prison.
You can see it in his face. His appearance is shocking — he lost 40 pounds of weight in just two months.
If he were to have stayed in prison much longer, I fear his very life would have been in danger.
Tommy told me he was so grateful to our Rebel viewers for crowdfunding his legal defence. We have now paid off Tommy’s last legal bill. Thank you.
We will continue to support Tommy — by reporting on his case, and in other ways that he may request.
