For too long, the victims of rape squads in the U.K. were ignored. Rotherham, Telford, Rochdale, Oxford, Newcastle — the list goes on.
But Tommy Robinson refused to look away. Despite known risk to his freedom, he persisted. Reporting known facts from the street outside a court in Leeds where a rape squad faced justice.
He was arrested simply for being there. Arrested, charged & sentenced in five hours. Given 13 months inside Hull Prison for contempt of court. Together with a sinister media ban to silence reporting of his plight.
And so, here today outside Whitehall, people protest.
But there is something else here.
The crowd is drawn by something bigger than Tommy, something greater than one man. Old, young, mothers, daughters and dads, drawn together by a shared sense that our country has got it all wrong, and Britain has lost its way.
