An Evening With Tommy Robinson
On the 3rd November 2017, I spent a wonderful 4 hours freezing my toes off in central Manchester, listening to Tommy Robinson, former EDL leader, journalist, author and activist.
The event was to launch his new book “Mohammed’s Koran; Why Muslims Kill For Islam” and during the four hour event, Tommy discussed Islam, its place (or rather, lack of place) in British culture and law, and the issues that face our country today. His presence alone caused a stir, and the Castlefield Bowl was packed with around 1,000 supporters cheering and chanting.
The event attracted the attention of dozens of angry left-wing protesters, who did little to dampen the spirits of those present, and soon cleared the area once Tommy began to speak. Their attempt to disrupt the evening failed, and it actually inspired everybody stand firm.
Tommy began the event by giving out free copies of his book and chatting to every member in the queue, before taking to the stage in front of an impressive bus projecting images of various UK politicians and journalists holding a copy of his book.
He spoke with passion and grace about the issues facing this country, and no matter what your view of him is, nobody can fault his commitment and utter belief in his cause. He riled up an already excited crowd, discussing issues ranging from the Islamification of the West, to freedom of speech, UK policing and British identity.
I socialised with a lot of people at the event, from a wide range of backgrounds and party’s, and the beauty of this event is that everyone, regardless of background, shared a unifying adoration for the truth, and it was a pleasure being in the company of such committed British patriots.
Whilst the media and Westminster shred British nationalism and patriotism apart, it is overwhelming to know that there are still thousands of, if not more, people who haven’t had their proud quashed, and will continue meeting in the cold and rain to make their voices heard, and to listen to a figure that has been demonised by the mainstream media for too long.
