The arrest of over 53 people yesterday in the UK is the beginning of the end for the once-great Britain. The leaders of the English Defence League, Tommy Robinson and Kevin Carroll, were among those arrested.
Dozens of police in riot vans swooped on vehicles carrying EDL members on the M1 near Luton, Beds, in what officers called a “pre-event investigation.”
The group had been planning a protest next Saturday in Walthamstow, north-east London. (More here)
Is there no one is the political establishment in the UK who has any decency, integrity or spine?
"Paul Weston Arrested Outside Wormwood Scrubs" British Freedom Party
By George Whale, 21:20 Monday
I have just received an urgent telephone call from British Freedom leader Paul Weston who has been arrested outside Wormwood Scrubs Prison.
Speaking from the back of a police van being driven to an unknown destination, Paul hurriedly informed me that he and a friend had travelled to the prison in West London this evening with the aim of visiting Tommy Robinson, or at least assuring themselves of his well-being.
Speaking through a glass panel they had asked officers at the prison to confirm that Tommy was being held there, but they refused to provide this information, citing the ‘Data Protection Act’. Paul and his friend again demanded to know where Tommy was being held, and at that point both were charged with breach of the peace, arrested and bundled into the police van.
Our conversation was cut off with Paul loudly remonstrating to an unidentified individual, “take your hands off me!”
We will update you on the situation as it unfolds.*Update: We have since learned that Tommy Robinson is being held in Wandsworth prison
