...a former[BNP] British National Party member who has served 12 months’ imprisonment for assaulting an off-duty police officer.
The BNP has been described as an "openly Neo-Nazi" party, and its founder John Tyndal once stated that "Mein Kampf is my bible". So: strange bedfellows indeed.
PS. It looks like Tommy's BNP roots recently got him booted from the EDL:After Searchlight’s exposé of Yaxley-Lennon, the EDL held a series of emergency meetings and discussions, while Yaxley-Lennon went into hiding and his parents threatened to throw him out. The group has begun using Ulster loyalist language and imagery and attempting to forge relationships with people from one of the notorious football hooligan gangs in the province.
It is also in the midst of a bizarre internal dispute, with one faction lined up behind a convicted German nazi terrorist with a black wife and his friend, a disgraced former loyalist terrorist. Rudderless for almost three weeks, the EDL finally issued a statement on 12 July, acknowledging growing grievances and announcing a new structure of regional organisers. The statement concluded that “the English Defence League is ready to move on to the next step in our counter Jihad fight”.
PPS. I am assuming "live hookup" means done over skype or by video feed. I doubt Mr. Robinson has the kind of dough to spring for a plane ticket to Toronto. His criminal record might also make travel difficult.
