Ezra Levant reports from Tommy Robinson’s appeal at the Royal Courts of Justice in London.
Tommy can’t trust the mainstream media to report fairly on his trial. At the request of Tommy’s family, Ezra Levant went to not just the appeal hearing on July 18th, but also the verdict, issued by the three-judge panel on August 1st.
The revelations in the hearing and judgement were shocking. Tommy was treated like a political prisoner.

The appeal court judges who heard Tommy's case say they will finally be issuing their verdict. They say they will do so on Tuesday, July 31st or on Wednesday, August 1st. (The judges were not more specific than that.)
Tommy’s lawyers say that if the appeal goes the way we all hope it will, Tommy could be released right away.
At the family’s request, I will be going back to London, not only to cover the verdict as a journalist. I have to go back over there, to report from the verdict, because I don’t trust a word that the mainstream media says about Tommy.
The media told bald-faced lies about his appeal hearing. The Guardian lied, Channel 4 lied, the BBC lied — and they’ll lie this time.
I want to be there to report accurately on the verdict.

Tommy Robinson's appeal hearing just finished, and will not be resuming tomorrow. The panel of judges say they need "the rest of July" before they hand down their decision.
Thanks to your crowdfunding, Tommy had a "dream team" of barristers and solicitors, and they've asked for three things.
If they end up winning even one of these points, Tommy will be freed.
Ezra speaks with American attorney Will Chamberlain, who was also in court as a spectator. He explains the difference between "free speech" laws in the U.S. as opposed to the UK.
During a mid-day break, Ezra explains why he is cautiously optimistic about the verdict in Tommy Robinson's appeal today.
Tommy is not just appealing his sentence, but rather the conviction itself and his conviction from a year ago. Also, Tommy's treatment in prison has been shocking, not even being allowed to meet with his lawyers.

(July 12, 2018)
Ezra Levant is reporting on Tommy Robinson’s appeal at the Royal Courts of Justice, in London.
As you know, the government had delayed the initial court date for Tommy’s appeal from July 10 to July 24, making him rot in solitary confinement for two more weeks. Then, that date was moved again, to July 18.
After the date changes, then we found out the initial judge appointed would be replaced by a panel of three judges, presided over by Sir Ian Burnett, the Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales.
That means the United Kingdom is taking this appeal very seriously.
And that's why Tommy asked Ezra to personally come to London to report on the appeal. Tommy doesn’t trust the mainstream media to report fairly on his case. And he's right to think that.
