Default Re: Tommy Robinson in the slammer

In defence of all honorable gentleman involve

steveenglish1 did used to say things that insinuated he though that Tommy Robinson wasn't a bad guy, he said things in support of some of his points and whatnot. He, rightly in my opinion, drew criticism for this position but that's technically irrelevant.

However, he never outright claimed him a messiah and was willing to listen to opposing points.
Someone posted a link or two to demonstrate some unsavoury elements of Mr Robinson, including (I think, from memory) some clear racist behaviour.

The aforementioned honorable gentleman steveenglish1 made a quite swift u-turn on his opinion and admitted he did now know of this behaviour prior. He was grateful at the time and showed good character in reacting to the information newly provided.

Reminding him of his previous opinions is only fair when considering the context and subsequent change of position.

Let's all move on.
