Tommy Robinson loses his court case against the Cambridgeshire police. What really happened?

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Forgive me for my absence these past three days. I was in the UK at Tommy Robinson's request, to cover Tommy Robinson's latest court case.

In this instance, Tommy was on the offensive, suing the Cambridgeshire Constabulary for harassing him and his family in the summer of 2016.

Some background: Tommy Robinson is a big football fan — that’s what they call soccer over there — and he goes to the matches, both in his native Luton and when the team travels.

Tommy had travelled up to Cambridge, to watch Luton play Cambridge. Tommy went with a friend, and they each brought their kids. Tommy has three young kids. They went to some kids festival in the city; then they went to the stadium to watch the match; then they went to a pub.

These pubs aren't really like our Canadian or American bars or nightclub, that are adults-only. Here, pubs are full of families, eating, socializing with other families, watching a match on TV.

(By the way, I happen to know that Tommy doesn’t touch a drop of alcohol around his family, and the same was true that day.)

That day, the police came into the pub and told Tommy: Leave now, or you’ll get arrested.

Tommy asked why; they didn’t answer; he asked again; they responded that if he kept asking, they’d arrest him by serving him with a “section 35 dispersal notice’. That’s a fancy way of saying: being arrested for “anti-social behaviour”. That’s a thing in the UK.

The landlady of the pub, who didn’t know Tommy, told the cop: This guy’s fine. He’s just been sitting here peacefully with his children. Like so much of this incident, this was captured on video.

The cop didn’t listen to her.

Tommy grudgingly complied with the police. But when he and his kids left the pub, the police now said:

Go to the train station and get out the city right now.

The police followed him to the station. In fact, one of them took out a video camera, and ostentatiously started recording him and his children. How creepy is that?

Funny thing, though: That same constable testified that, depending on the situation, he was obligated to keep such videos for 28 days, or even up to 100 years. But he felt this particular video was of no relevance, so he just deleted it.

I haven’t practiced law in a while, but if you delete evidence (in Canada at least) the court takes an "adverse inference" from it — they assume the worst about what you refuse to show them.

But that didn’t happen here. As I'll tell you tonight, a lot of things did (and didn't) happen during this trial that left me feeling depressed, and angry.

So has the verdict:

Today, the judge ruled against Tommy.

Not only did she throw out his lawsuit, but Tommy has to pay the lawyer for the police; and he has to pay the police themselves.

I’ve never heard of that before. They were being paid to attend the trial; they incurred no costs. But Tommy told me he doesn’t just have to pay for their lawyers, but for them: 

A total of £38,000 pounds which is over CDN$60,000.

It's sad that the UK has allowed itself to be governed by laws that allow police to simply arrest anyone for anything at any time — for what future crimes they might “possibly” commit. Of course that’s going to be abused by bully cops.

But even sadder was the general political-media culture: that to the establishment — to lawyers, politicians, the media, the courts, everyone — having unrestricted police powers is just fine.

Except that it isn’t...

NEXT: I'll show you the interview I had with Tommy Robinson today on my live show Battleground. I called him right after the judge's verdict was announced, and you won't want to miss this.

Jay Kelly when did those incidents happen? Were they happening when he was run out fo Dodge? Many of those charges were as phony as the one he was released on last year.

No, no, Al Peterson. Tommy Robinson (whose legal name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon) over the past few years has been charged with, and convicted of most of the following:
Assault, Assaulting a police officer, Rooftop protest, another Assault, Instigating a brawl, Possession of a false identity document with improper intention, Mortgage fraud, and Contempt of Court twice.
A description of these charges can be found at:
At some point he has to grow up and take responsibility for his actions.

Tommy Robinson may be a fine man, but he has to take responsibility for his actions.
And those actions were sitting quietly enjoying dinner with his kids? Should his kids have been drawn and quartered for what they might do in the future?

You should have said no where I come from we have freedom of speech and freedom of the press, we don’t need a license

This is why the jury system is better. It sounds crazy to me to have one person decide my fate.
commented 2019-03-18 20:47:28 -0400
The UK is screwed up. With thier crazy laws
commented 2019-03-18 04:17:32 -0400
Ezra, you mentioned in earlier posts how respectful the police were to Tommy Robinson. Thank you for your reporting on this case.
At a certain point I guess you just have to accept that the police had their reasons, and the Court had its reason. Tommy Robinson may be a fine man, but he has to take responsibility for his actions.
Safe travels back to Canada!

Right Robert, I’m sure Ezra will also agree about the H R Tribunals, what about Family Court, just as bad for men.
commented 2019-03-17 16:25:33 -0400
This is the exact same way the Human Rights Tribunal are in Ontario present day! It’s here in Canada.. Ford!! What are you going to do about it??

This is usually where I point out that the UK has morphed into A Clockwork Orange. The thugs get government jobs as police, the government worrying only to keep itself in power at the expense of the people, and a corrupt legal system. The corrupt social system and money for all. The decadence of the society, and law abiding people having no expectation of justice.

Future Crime convictions because, hey, you might commit a crime somewhere down the road; maybe today, tomorrow, or next year, so guilty you are!

Was this really a judge? Cracker Jack box law degree or just someone’s old girlfriend appointed to the bench. Or laws, created by the EU, where you are essentially guilty for something you may do; Brexit can’t come soon enough.

The British police are famous for taking down everyone’s name. Why didn’t the “officer” obtain the name of the publicly drunk passerby who warned him of Tommy’s presence in the pub? no question as to how he knew that Tommy was in the pub since he was just walking (staggering) down the street. Why didn’t the constable simply go into the pub and see if there was actually a cause for concern? Instead, if there really was “intel”, he showed up with five other officers to order Tommy out. Outside there was another half dozen or more police. All this activity without investigation or suspected crime being committed.

If there is nothing criminal going on, the police really have no authority over anyone. If you are stopped or approached, an officer has a duty and obligation to explain their reason. If not, its just a stranger bothering you. But if you can only find out why is to first be arrested, it really is the police breaking the law.

From the millions of people following this case, can anyone say that the whole process was a farce? The judge had her mind set well before entering the courtroom… and its obvious.

Tommy just can’t fight the whole corrupt system himself. They will destroy the life of anyone who tries. Ezra has been a huge supporter but he is Canadian and Tommy needs some fellow Brits willing to walk the tightrope together with him. Personally, I think it is in his families best interest to try to immigrate to Poland or Hungary but it is his battle and his decision. The next step the elite will take is to destroy Tommy’s financial means. Things will get worse because this case set a precedent. It is now acceptable to openly persecute Tommy and his family. So now we will see just how much the people of Britain are prepared to back him. Fighting it through the court system is useless, no judge will side with Tommy regardless of evidence. I wouldn’t be surprised if this judge was told before the trial began what the verdict would be.

I’m too pissed offed to comment.. sorry folks. It’s getting worse.
commented 2019-03-16 16:15:54 -0400
The fact that the police offered to settle out of court is a admission of guilt , it’s obvious this leftist judge can’t see that . The fix was in . Would have done much better with a jury .
commented 2019-03-16 13:06:19 -0400
This is real injustice, charging a working class man with 3 kids to pay the cops $67,000.. Incredible. In my opinion, the UK is so far gone, Tommy will never win against them. This makes me think of the British elite marrying US money a century ago to maintain their lifestyle and castles. When there was no more US money, they sold out to the Arabs. Now they are attacking their own citizens. They are a despicable snub bunch.

I gave again to Tommy. (against my better feelings) I feel that I should be saving my money to fight a Totalitarian Government in Canada.

Check out The Liberal’s new impaired driving laws. (Cops coming into your kitchen or else)

Ezra explained around 3 years ago how the UK Judicial system worked. You don’t especially have to get the best Lawyer, you get the highest class Lawyer. There is still a class system in the UK.
A Judge that came from the best University isn’t going to agree with a Lawyer that worked his way up the system. Tommy admitted to Ezra that he didn’t have the money 2 years ago to hire a Classy Lawyer.

Will the last person who has the sense to leave, please flush the loo that is Britain?

Rule Brussels,
Brussels rules the Brits.
I they don’t Brexit
they are a lot of silly twits.

(With apologies to the British vets who gave their lives fighting the Nazis but now see them holding power over the Lime Juicers).

Tommy should have sued for his past treatment in jail. I believe he was on death’s door step by the way he looked and acted when he was released. We all know what’s going here. The whole system is corrupt and another battle plan needs to be drawn.
commented 2019-03-16 09:53:42 -0400
With respect to the total of £38,000, I now understand that amount is somewhat exaggerated. I received an email today from Tommy wherein he said, “To top it all off the costs of which I am now ordered to pay, which have also been inflated by the Police, are in excess of £40,000! Which is made up of £20,000 ordered to be paid within 14 days then reverting to over £40,000 if that deadline is not met.” So, it would appear that the higher amount applies if he doesn’t pay the £20,000 court costs in two weeks.

He concludes his email with “I am looking at every legal avenue to appeal” (which Ezra has advised against) and asks for financial support to do so. I agree, John Whale, that he needs to pick his battles better.
commented 2019-03-16 08:03:52 -0400
Notwithstanding that Tommy was poorly treated by the law, his lawyers should have known about the EU section 35 and advised him against pursuing the case and accepting the out of court settlement. Another reason to leave the EU. I am a TR supporter but he needs to pick his battles better. The “establishment” has decided that he is a trouble maker, wrongly imo, but that doesn’t matter. His lawyer was poor and he acted poorly in handling the case.

The video could possibly be retrieved by a private Forensics expert…an electrical engineer forensic service.It would cost a bit,such as a thousand dollars,but they often have the ability to retrieve it with date and time.The political establishment are trying to crush him and human rights.Look them up in the phone book.He will have to supply the camera to do it.It will be interference with evidence by the police.Wasn’t that video shown on Facebook?I am sure I saw that incident.This is all terrible wickedness at work.
commented 2019-03-16 02:58:51 -0400
Time to abandon good ol’ Britannia. Leave it to the immigrants and the waste of space establishment and the corrupt police who basically get away with murder. Disposal of evidence outright lies by the police, all of this just goes to show that the establishment is hell-bent on destroying the UK we have known all our lives. What they intend to do after this destruction, where do they intend to live and bring up their families etc because they certainly won’t be safe in the UK?
commented 2019-03-16 02:25:50 -0400
I feel for Tommy and his family. I left the UK in 1994 and now reside in Calgary. I have been back to the UK only twice. The draconian anti-free speech laws introduced by both the Labour Party (I.e. Liberals in Canada), and the so-called " Conservative" Party have all but strangled any and all freedom of expression. Even professional journalists have been imprisoned in the UK for allegedly expressing “hate.” George Orwell’s 1984 is already here.
commented 2019-03-16 00:56:52 -0400
I appreciate that Ezra enjoys visiting the UK but after watching what has been going on there I can, sincerely and with regret, say that as a place to go it will not be on my list of places to see. When a state has a corrupt and/or politicized police and judiciary it becomes to dangerous to visit and I wonder if there are a lot more than me who are coming to the same conclusion. Knife and acid attacks, rapes, and heaven help you if you find yourself in a no go area or actually need police protection. That is the picture and it’s ugly. Wonder how the tourist industry in the UK or France or Belgium, or Sweden is doing these days?
commented 2019-03-16 00:34:38 -0400
Just what the hell has happened to Britain!?
The cops, the judges, the government, the media – the elite and their minions…they’ve sold out the people and proof of that is by how they are choosing to act out as they have against the people…on orders from the EU fascists in Brussels, no doubt! Like the across the board persecution of Tommy Robinson! Unbelievable!
The same symptoms of the Globalist takeover of the West are observable in Canada right now, as we are seeing with the SNC-Lavalin/Admiral Norman scandals. When cornered these lying traitors just deny what they’ve done like the bald-faced liars they are – or like the Liberals Justice Committee ‘adjournment’, with their paid whores in the Fake News Media Party covering up and lying for them – and then they just proceed with the next step of their plans to destroy Canada.
They’re pushing their dictatorship on us, daily, while ignoring any protest and bluffing and bulling their way to success.
One day soon we’ll all wake up to the One World Order our country has become a part of…no longer Canadians, or Brits, or French, all equal and homogenized, equally poor and equally without rights…those who survive, anyway.
Tommy’s showing that to the world…or at least to whomever is listening.

It’ll be interesting to see how soon journalist permits will be issued in Canada…

£38,000.00 is equal to Can$ 67,539.54, US$50608.29 today…Lawfare by the state!

Revolution is coming…

Its pretty clear the judge’s mind was made up before she walked in to the court house.
I’m just glad Ezra got out of there without her putting him in the Dungeon!
commented 2019-03-15 23:12:51 -0400
How about we get Tommy to give Canadians some political advice, like….‘A vote for Trudeau is a vote for the end of Canada’. He could send it as a video and the Rebel could air it on line. We could even put it on one of those trucks including a sound track. Tommy has a lot of followers in Canada.
commented 2019-03-15 23:07:47 -0400
- Welcome to fascist Britain. Eventually it won’t matter how good a lawyer you get (if you’re allowed one at all). They’re chipping away at our rights throughout the West. Eventually being tried in secret, convicted & then arrested will be the normal. That’s where it ended up with the Soviet Union. They started with the show trials & ended up with secret trials. Streamlined oppression.
commented 2019-03-15 22:27:15 -0400
1. WHY didn’t they have the landlady there and
2. WHY couldn’t they use his phone video as evidence?

If you ‘ve been following the Cardinal Pell case in Australia, it’s the exact same thing; a total witch hunt and there are many, many parallels with Tommy’s case. The Australian system must be like England. There were no charges ever made against this Cardinal and so the police made up a task force to drum up and find something to use against him (sounding familiar). The first trial he was acquitted 10-2 innocent, the second trial guilty of child abuse.
This man would have to have, in full robes immediately after Mass have sexually assaulted an altar boy all within 6 minutes from start to finish.
There were two men used to make these charges created/fabricated. The first guy recanted his story a number of times before he died, said he had lied and it never happened.

Cardinal Pell had 20 ALIBIS; sounds like Tommy.

The court system and media had been out for this Cardinal for the past 20 years because he was outspoken on fake environmental issues, targeted by an lgbt group, etc..

Australia has major religious persecution and it sounds like England when targeting anyone who is not left wing.

You need to hear how the Australian police manipulated this case and how the media distorted the facts, same as Tommy.

Seems to me that the UK is a little more advanced in it’s downward spiral to NWO Marxism than Canada is but we sure as hell ain’t to far behind.
What is obvious is that the political elite are terrified of Tommy and what he represents, they fear what he could do with the following he has. The NWO want him out of the way and will do anything to stop him and being what they are, they will do it as originally planned, out of sight in Jail.
Only a Revolution would save him……Sure hope I’m wrong.
