[Ed. – He seems to be linking this to the fate of Brexit, which has been thrown into fresh turmoil today. His option of doing it soon would also be contingent on the outcome of a new push to revoke his parole for the unfree-speech violations held over him by the court system. (His offense was video-recording people outside the courthouse where the rape-gang trials were being held.) Robinson would stand for UKIP.]
Tommy Robinson has announced that he wants to stand for parliament — either in Brussels, as an MEP, if Brexit fails, or in Westminster.
“If anyone in this country wants to really rock the boat put me in there [Parliament] because I won’t lie and I won’t hold back!” he told me when we met this month.
But that was before last Thursday’s announcement by Attorney-General Geoffrey Cox that it is “in the public interest” to bring further proceedings against Robinson for contempt of court.
There is no bar to standing for election as an MP once you are released from prison.
Robinson told me:
“If Brexit’s delayed — as I think it will be — I’ll stand as an MEP.”
