oh the irony, the number of Brexiters seeking to run off to the sun in the EU to escape the ravages of Brexit. Makes me quite angry and I do hope he is turned down for residency.

Who on earth would want him? Apart from Farage supporters I suppose.

Tony Robinson.....Baldrick?🤔

lemongrove Wed 29-Jul-20 12:08:16

Oh....you mean Tommy Robinson.

biba70 Wed 29-Jul-20 12:11:14

Oops of course- sorry, typo- Yaxley-Lemon what's his face ...

so what do you think about his move to Spain?

biba70 Wed 29-Jul-20 12:13:27

Lawson wanted to go to his house in France /turned down by authorities. Farage wanted German nationality for him and kids, Stanley wants to go to Greece ... in a way, let them go, we would be well rid. But !

Is there a link for this Biba?

biba70.....you need to take care to get your facts right before you go sounding off about someone. It's TOMMY Robinson who has fled abroad.

Think you have to contact GNHQ to get title changed.

Goodness I was very confused by the thread title grin but now I know it's Tommy Robinson - great news, good riddance, hope he stays there!

Apparently he's lied about the reason too. He claims his house was subject to an arson attack.

1 No such attack has been reported to the police.
2 The house is now in his wife's name (apparently they're about to separate/divorce)
3 He's on the verge of losing a court case and will probably be landed with hefty legal costs, which will be more difficult to get back if he's in Spain.

Spain is welcome to him. Apparently, he's eligible for an Irish passport, which he might or might not have, so he could be an EU citizen. If that's the case, I hope his supporters can see what a hypocrite he is.

I wonder if he'll acknowledge that he's an immigrant. Considering his criminal background, I hope Spain doesn't deport him back to where he came from.

I don't know what to make of this thread! The title refers to the wrong man and when I've searched for Tommy Robinson, I can only find that he's gone abroad and is seeking to relocate because he believes his family are no longer safe in the UK.

I can't find anything about him going anywhere as an asylum seeker? Am I looking in the wrong places? good riddance to him wherever he's going

I am a supporter of Tommy but, yes, I do agree, it's quite ironic. Not sure of the truth about his wife's house being set on fire but I see no criticism of that crime on here, if it is true!

In what way are you a supporter of this man Quizqueen?

Galaxy Wed 29-Jul-20 13:37:53

Putting all the other awfulness aside how can you support a man guilty of domestic violence.

timetogo2016 Wed 29-Jul-20 13:41:38

Well lets hope he stays there,if they let him that is.

lemongrove Wed 29-Jul-20 13:43:55

I couldn’t care less one way or another.

Where is there anything on this thread about him being an asylum seeker?

I can't do a link, but he's issued a video of claims that he's not safe. He's a professional victim. There's no evidence of the attack he claims. If he's punched a few times, he deserves it and has incited enough violence in his time.

In the title of the OP?

I’m glad he’s gone, Spain or wherever is welcome to him.

I’ve asked GN to change the title of this thread before they get sued.
