Reflections on the revelation that Sir Brian Leveson discussed Tommy Robinson’s specific conviction for contempt of court with @JoshuaRozenberg on BBC’s Law in Action as pointed out on Kipper Central…
I’ve listened to the full segment of the BBC show and the entire package is about social media corruption of juries. He speaks at length about how important it is for the DEFENDANT to FEEL he/she’s have a fair trial.
There is a reverse irony to this: Tommy Robinson has had insanely prejudicial public reporting for a decade! There is no way anyone who has been exposed to the reporting ever since the EDL can know who he really is. #FreeTommy
If someone takes the time to watch Tommy’s Oxford Union speech or read his book, you start to understand this. So the discussion of Juries being prejudiced by public comment, skips the idea that the Judge in Leeds was similarly prejudiced #FreeTommy
As I’ve pointed out in videos and tweets, the first conviction for taking a brief piece of video in the lobby of Canterbury Court falls into this category completely. The second conviction in Leeds also does. #FreeTommy
As I’ve made note many times, the Leeds live stream has not been removed from YouTube, if that livestream is the problem, it should have been taken down. #FreeTommy
Even though Sir Brian Leveson, UK’s most senior criminal judge, is only set to hear an appeal over a sentence, having appeared on the BBC’s flagship program about the UK Legal system and affirmed Tommy’s guilt doesn’t feel very good. #FreeTommy
I would dearly love to hear @JoshuaRozenberg ’s opinion on the specifics of Sir Brian Leveson now hearing Tommy Robinson’s appeal: it is absolutely clear the entire segment on Law in Action was produced PRIMARILY to answer all the social media buzz and marches #FreeTommy
Sir Brian Leveson is the second highest Judge in the Land. In fact his position as the President of the Queen's Bench Division was only separated from the Lord Chief Justice in 2005. Why is he hearing this case weeks after broadcasting about it? #FreeTommy
I can’t find a great many examples of Sir Brian Leveson speaking to the press (outside of his most famous role for charing the phone hacking enquiry). Why speak about Tommy Robinson and then hear a sentencing appeal? #FreeTommy
Another interesting tidbit: the Leveson Inquiry into the phone hacking scandal was carried out in full public view: there were live streams of all witnesses including celebrities. Something quite revolutionary and I really don’t think the press liked that.
What a contrast to Tommy’s news embargoed trial and imprisonment which the provincial Judge in Leeds who thought he could keep this secret for possibly months while his complex 3 part case continued. #FreeTommy
And soon after I finish tweeting, news comes via @ezralevant that the State isn’t ready for the appeal and is postponing.

I agree with every word Ezra says in this @TheRebelTV video. #FreeTommy

If you’re intellectually honest and want to understand how the real alt-right sees Jews and Israel, this 15 minute section of @markacollett ’s this week in the alt-right show. I’ve set the start point for you. /1
The first person answering the question is Jarred Taylor: he’s a real giant of the white nationalist world and has been doing this a lot longer than most. He’s more sane than most. What you’ll hear from him is a harsh refutation of the beliefs of many in the alt-right. /2
I’d love to include his Twitter handle but he was removed from Twitter even though (maybe because?) he’s certainly less of a believer in the idea that all the problems of white people are caused by Jews. He’s suing Twitter. /3

On police tactics and #FreeTommy demos.…
Ever wondered why there were high quality cameras in exactly the right place to get just the right pictures of Tommy "supporters" getting violent?

It's almost funny watching them try to use the same playbook they used on the EDL.
I'll probably do a periscope tomorrow morning on how the security services, police and other forces will try to to shut this down in the coming weeks.

Dear Judge,

How well did arresting Tommy Robinson during a livestream help you keep your trial quiet? #FreeTommy
Dear Judge,

Bit late now but here’s what you should have done.

Walk up to Tommy Robinson and on his livestream explain why you had a problem with his actions.

Explain your court’s rules for coverage.

Inform people.

Talk before using power of the State. #FreeTommy
Dear Judge

Instead of taking a brilliant chance to inform over 10,000 live viewers and millions more later how reporting restrictions work in the UK, you picked up the MASSIVE power, backed by guns and armies and courts and prisons and threw it at Tommy Robinson.
