Let us hope that he gets a sentence which sends a firm message that his ideology is not acceptable.

Not just his ideology but his casual attitude to the law.  Reporting restrictions are important especially when multiple trials are involved and surely even an idiot like Yaxley Lennon must have had some idea why there was a restriction in place at the time.  Instead he has milked the issue and tried to imply that he is a victim of the system.

The problem here is that there a lot of people who actually believe that is the reason he is being punished.  Not that he risked the conviction of multiple sex offenders and ignored the instructions of judges.  They treat him like he's a victim.

I've got an old friend who holds that opinion and no matter what I say to him he insists that Robinson was hard done by.  I wonder what his supporters would be saying if the trial had been canned because of his 'reporting' because that was one of the risks he ran.

Even his Red London bus got a parking ticket. Nice one to the warden. Sad that it did not get towed and impounded.

He is just a form of re-incarnation of the National Front whose odious Nick Griffin did not fair well at all. Sadly he attracts supporters from the knuckle draggers which, perhaps says it all about him.

I asked this question.  Aparrently Waxy-Lemon and his friends could 'sort it' without bothering the police.  He didn't even for a moment consider that a murder charge would be incoming.

He knows that if he is locked up for a year most of his supporters will forget he exists.  Back to yelling at people from street corners with a hat to collect some coin before heading down to The Wethers afterwards with all the other day drinkers.

Sadly I don't think that will be the case as he will become a martyr for their misguided cause.

I'm working from how much of his support evaporated when he was banned from Twitter and FB.  He blames that for his massive loss of support and loss of his deposit (I'd be lying if I said I wasn't warm and fuzzy when that happened).  I'd expect a couple of weeks where they're noisy, then a period of quiet.  Look what has happened to BF after they locked up Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum.

Apparently the maximum sentence is one of 2 years. I sincerely hope that he is sentenced to the maximum. His whole ethos thrives on hatred and his claims to be discriminated against because of this criminal behaviour. I believe that he will, like Nick Griffin, fade into obscurity.
