I Want to Believe Tommy Robinson Has Seen the Error in His Ways, But I'm Finding It Difficult to Do

Robinson thinks that by partnering with the Quilliam Foundation, who also label practically everyone in the Muslim community who do not share their particular views as 'extremists', he has developed a new ingenious strategy to mainstream his cause. If the somewhat fawning response of the media is to go by, he may well be on to something. It was striking how he was allowed to continuously make references to the dangers of Islamic extremism in broad brush stokes, without challenge or definition, smearing an entire community, conjuring up an image of a sinister 'enemy within'.

Part of the reason this country has a political system that doesn't much look like the people it governs, is because for many, the fight to be heard in public and civic life, where decisions are made, is a long and arduous one that is still being fought.

John Wight

The concerted attempt to demonise George Galloway over his comments on the rape allegations levelled at Julian Assange is reflective of something rotten in British cultural life.
