Robinson, 36, was found guilty of breaching reporting ban by livestreaming footage of defendants in ongoing trial
After deduction for time served, the sentence will amount to 19 weeks of which he will only serve half before being released.
Aiden Eardley, barrister for the attorney general, who had made the application for Robinson to be jailed, began by outlining the sentencing options, adding that complicating factors included time already served, which amounted to 68 days in custody.
He said: “Notwithstanding the seriousness of what has been found to be proven against him, in terms of actual harm to the trial of the criminal defendants in Leeds there is no suggestion that the criminal defendants in Leeds did not have a fair trial, notwithstanding his conduct outside the court.”
After he had finished his submission, Furlong was asked to make a number of other points, including that he was likely to be held in solitary confinement for his own safety.
Robinson meanwhile issued an appeal using Telegram for supporters to protest outside prison on Saturday.
Robinson was found to have committed contempt by breaching a reporting restriction, risked impeding the course of justice and interfered with the administration of justice by “aggressively, and openly filming” the arrival of defendants at court.Read more: The Guardian

giftedrascal Thoughts and prayers. 😂 Strangely, ALL the 'media' stood by, like cowards, while he was railroaded in an attempt to silence his reporting. Who will stand up when the same thing eventually happens to you? Government jailing journalists for reporting the truth...it is already too late for the UK.
And you get 6 years for murder? I’m sure his fellow prisoners will help him come to terms with his sentence and explain why many disagree with his extreme views. I’m sure it will be a very helpful experience for him.

Bad publication worse people.

It’s a disgrace. Thomas is the last bastion of free speech in this seemingly growing police state. Who is going to stop the rapists now? You? Exactly. FreeTommy QAnon pizzagate CORRUPTION FreeSpeech He must be so relieved. He though he was going to be sentenced to death! I feel sorry for him. I mean, there are loads of total arseholes like Trump and Johnson etc who get to say and do horrendous things and they don't get any punishment. Poor Stevie.
His look of Jesus before Pilate. Out in 4 months with a bigger following I expect. Me: Looks on Twitter, joins in celebration. Sky said he is jailed for 7 months. Which is which? How's his asylum claim going? Maybe he can have Assange's shit covered room for a few years. Judgment on the commit application is at
Hands up those who support secrecy for Muslim child rapists. More trials coming up.
Tommy Robinson encouraged vigilante action, judges sayFull high court ruling explains reasons for finding former EDL leader guilty of contempt nahh the judges do that themselves with the lenient sentences they deliver. Spot on Any chance he”ll take up the cause of grooming little girls by Epstein & his fans Trump & prince (chortle) Andrew
What goes around Well well well Lucky that prisons are nothing more than holiday camps, he'll be living in the lap of luxury and will be out on pretence of good behaviour in a few weeks. That's how it is, isn't it? The judges involved should be fired. No doubts. It's clear we need to DrainTheUkSwamp. You only have to look to the USA to see what has happened here; people brought up on made up charges, losing careers, jobs, families, friends, all for non crimes. Its corruption to the core!
Why we don’t believe in laws Let’s hope he learns his lesson. Fucking idiot In years to come he will be remembered as the personification of the horrible state of affairs that british politics is in. The stinking irony of this skidmark-in-the-pants-of-the-UK pleading to the orange pig POTUS for political asylum was lost on his followers
No he hasn't. Stephen Yaxley-Lennon has
Tommy Robinson is begging Trump for refugee status and everyone is making the same point Tommy Robinson has launched a public appeal for Donald Trump to grant him asylum in the United States as he faces being jailed in the United Kingdom and, of course, everyone is making exactly the 'A refugee is someone who has been forced to flee his or her country because of persecution, war or violence. A refugee has a well-founded fear of persecution for reasons of race, religion, nationality, political opinion or membership in a particular social group.' United Nations Stop the lights! The absolute state of him...

Tommy Robinson admits being jailed would be a ‘win’ for his cause as he appeals for donations'My support will be stronger than ever ... either way I win,' activist said before sentencing 🙄🙄🙄 Gaol is an ideal place to write a book. May I suggest a title : Mein Kampf. Anyone who gives to this thug is a fool! There are numerous people in dire need who would be greatful for help - a penny to Tommy is a kick in the teeth for the starving, the sick, the homeless!
World's_smallest violin.gif He was expecting death sentence lol It is a sad day for the UK. Expose the Pakistani grooming gangs and you get locked away. Couldn't he be jailed for life for being a contemptible human I feel sorry for the poor blokes he'll be banged up with. Prisons are already overcrowded without having to accommodate his outsized ego.
Only nine months - pah - soft justice system, they should have thrown away the key :) That’s not his name, but I am glad he has been sent down I will no longer sit back and allow this establishment attack on an innocent man! My RAGE is through the roof!
