Consequently, Robinson has been questioned on Twitter as to how he can afford to shop in upmarket department stores and visit casinos while simultaneously asking for donations to the 'EDL Legal Fund'.
This is ostensibly to raise money to cover the legal fees incurred after he was arrested along with co-leader, Kevin Carroll earlier this month.
Robinson said he only has 28 days to pay the costs or he faces being locked up.
He also claims he can't pay the costs himself as the police have frozen his bank accounts and assets "for the last three years".
In a video (above) posted on YouTube he said: "They [the police] are putting me in a situation where they know I can't pay it.
"That's why I'm asking you. Look, I'd stick my hand in my pocket to see anyone walk around the biggest Sharia zone in Europe, let alone the leaders of the English Defence League."
"That's what all this is about."
Robinson has also claimed in the past he own seven properties.
