His yellow vest fanboy has been nicked as well for threatening to behead a journalist. Good job these patriots are here to protect us from those crazy Muslims.

He is a political advisor to UKIP :lol:

Probably make him an honourary member now.

If anything, he's now over-qualified for the role.

State of these yellow jackets man. Just f*** off. :lol:

Half a million or more go on a march and not so much as a bin knocked over in Shaftsbury Avenue.

Pro Brexit/Petrol Price weirdos happy to just randomly kick off and scream at those charged with protecting us from ourselves.

It really doesn't help when the police also wear yellow vests. It's all going to end with people beating up their own side.

Yellow Vest protests in France were an eclectic mix but had lots of quite left wing demands. The ones over here are just gammon dressed as pineapple.

Erm.

Whilst you can't punch someone for them and get away with it scot free , "fighting words" aren't covered under free speech.

Eh?
If his account is accurate and there was instigation/provocation, then the response isn't some kind of hypocrisy about free speech on his part.

I cared more about being a pedant than mocking Tommy Robinson and I apologize. :lol:

It's free speech *with consequence*, which is exactly what he mis-labels as anti-free speech when it happens to him after he's went out to provoke a reaction. So it's definitely hypocrisy imo.

To be fair, being a hypocrite is probably one of his better qualities...

Quote
Unrepentant racist bully Billy Charlton shouted at jurors "I hope your daughters don't get raped" and gave his supporters the thumbs up as he was jailed for spreading his toxic lies in a series of public speeches.

Vile and manipulative Charlton hid behind the cloak of respectability of wanting to protect women and children from sexual assault but his true intention was to disseminate hate-filled falsehoods about immigrants, Asians, black people and the police.

The 55-year-old, of Byland Court, Glebe, Washington , was convicted on Thursday of five counts of stirring up racial hatred after a series of speeches in Sunderland.

Lots of stuff on Twitter of "I stand with Billy Charlton" and about how his only crime was highlighting grooming gangs and a case where Asian rapists were let off by the police, but he does looks a little racist here with his Combat 18 flags and his mate in a Rudolf Hess t-shirt.



Indeed they care so much about the alleged victim in the case he was jailed for spreading lies about his mates are threatening to chin her family for not supporting them in court.

They used to love him on RTG. He brought Sir Tommy to Sunderland and helped make their town great again.
