Tommy Robinson Released From Bedford Prison

By • on September 12, 2011

Word has reached us that Tommy Robinson, who has been languishing as a political prisoner in Bedford Prison this last week has now been released by the British regime.  It is unclear whether or not he is still ‘banned’ or whether justice and common sense have been allowed to prevail.

Tommy was not the first prisoner of conscience to be incarcerated in Bedford, John Bunyan, author of The Pilgrim’s Progress was imprisoned in the town in 1660.  The similarities in the cases of Tommy and John Bunyan are rather interesting.  Tommy was imprisoned following his attendance and speech at Tower Hamlets, John Bunyan (according to THIS Wikipedia article) appears to have been imprisoned for preaching.   The Wikipedia article includes the following:

“In 1658, aged 30, he was arrested for preaching at Eaton Socon and indicted for preaching without a licence. He continued preaching, however, and did not suffer imprisonment until November 1660, when he was taken to the County gaol in Silver Street, Bedford.”

Presumably, as was the case with Bunyan, the State persecution of Tommy Robinson will continue – the agents of the London regime show no signs of adhering to the most basic democratic principles. It seems that the restrictions of 17th century England are now returning as the state invents new heresies to hamper and obstruct freedom in the 21st century.  So much for social progress!

Tommy was charged and jailed for one reason and one reason only. To make sure he was not available for any 911 event. The police in England, and in much of the western world now, no longer enforce the law but seem to have a policy of a kind of cynical pragmatism. One where the police use any means at their disposal to ‘keep the peace’ as opposed to uphold the law in spirit or in letter. This means trumped charges, it means totalitarianism, it means the death of the secular democracy as modern leaders are more afraid of perception than reality, and more afraid of potential violence on a small scale than the total breakdown of a cooperative civil society.
God help us all.

I missed the old UK – I grew up with Enid Blyton and Charles Dicken books and had many lovely summers there; London and the whole UK were so vibrant. I remembered going to Hyde Park and seeing the rich Arab ladies throwing off their burkas in their Roll-Royce and came out in skirts and all kinds of modern orWestern dressing! It was fantastic to watch how they were enjoying their short freedom in London!

But it looks like the UK is being conquered bit by bit by Taleban Muslim savages (especially by fanatical Pakistani Muslims – Taleban is Pakistan’s creation!).I blame the Labour-Left-Socialist party which has completely destroyed the UK! But it still doesn’t look good under the neo-Conservative party under the pathetic Islam-loving leadership of Cameron, who has betrayed Churchill’s legacy!
