Tommy Robinson UKIP Adviser

Don Troooomp

Condescension and embedded self importance
I'm going to have a pop at the shake throwing hero.
It should have been chocolate flavour so the racist twat turned brown when he got splattered. :D

'Punches, attacks, milkshakes': inside the Tommy Robinson campaign

In remarks unearthed by the Guardian, Robinson told a meeting of far-right activists in Cork in 2016 that the west was “too weak to say our culture is superior to Muslim culture” and – in comments picked up off-camera – told one rightwing campaigner it was fine to use violence against counter-protesters as long as it was not on camera. “If the cameras aren’t there, fucking punch the geezers right in the head,”
Horrible little cunt.

strange indeed. politics has never been such a headbanging mess, stuck in the brexit mire, the far right/populism stuff appealing (like trump voters) as knocking parliament etc. i see very few positives at the mo.

The only light at the moment is the beginning of the decriminalisation of psychedelics. Maybe they will go mainstream and reach enough people just in time... Feed the Nazis magic mushrooms and MDMA. :D

It's the surprise leftfield happy ending! Otherwise I reckon things are going to get a hell of a lot worse (on many levels) before they get better.

It's not impossible but I think it's very unlikely - he really isn't that popular generally.

The problem is being in a state where he's more than a joke candidate. There are people around who are only slightly less racist who might actually have some chance. His presence and publicity drags everything more in that direction, and similarly he is enabled by others.

It isn't actually a question though is it - the numbers arent there. People are just a bit hysterical about it cause he's the big bad wolf.
It's still a question that's being asked even if the answer is clearly "no", and the fact that it's being asked is part of the process.

The danger his candidature poses is being blown out of proportion by opposing parties as a campaigning tool. Sadly this suits him as well as them...

Not as stupid as he seems...
Hopefully the brexit/racist/whatever vote will be split. However the remain/non-racist/whatever vote could also be split.

However each one of us feels about voting at all ever, this could be an exception just to help make sure the (bigger) cunts don't win.

it isnt just that people vote for him, its that they dont vote for anyone else that can end in a win. is he as popular as UKIP? Farage? they have backing and experience and are slightly more respectable than him. altho he has a terrible record...

Tommy Robinson Is Not Innocent!

... many people couldnt give a toss cos theres this cult around him.

he is standing in Nick Griffins old manor isn't he?
The north west of England isn't nick Griffin's 'old manor', but his party did once get enough votes for him to briefly become one of our MEPs. He was crushed at the last election though, because all their vote - beyond a very few committed fascists, and not even all of them - transferred to UKIP. They're now all transferring to the Brexit party.

The base figures you need to look at arent the BNP in 2009, it's the BNP in 2104. I think Robinson might do a little better than 32000, but with the wind behind Farage as it is, I wouldnt bet on it.
