In the midst of a still highly contested issue, British Party UKIP has officially given its go ahead for a Tommy Robinson membership debate.
The motion for the recruitment of Tommy Robinson to the party shall now be debated in Birmingham at UKIP’s national conference after Tony McIntyre gave his go ahead for a proposal put forward by UKIP’s Family & Children Spokesman Alan Craig reading;
“Conference believes that Tommy Robinson is a global figure who stands in the long English tradition of anti-establishment rebels with a cause from Robin Hood to the Suffragettes; admires his campaigns both for #FreeSpeech and to expose the authorities’ decades-long silence and inaction over the industrial-scale child sexual abuse by rape gangs; and requests the NEC to consider offering him membership of UKIP.”
The chairman reacted with the following statement: “After due consideration on consulting the UKIP National Executive Committee, the Party Chairman has decided to allow a debate at the party conference on the membership of Tommy Robinson”. He followed by stating that no further comment will be given until the conference takes place on the 22nd of September.
Mr.Robinson says, “I would join UKIP, but I find it amazing that the NEC could make a decision that would prevent their own members from making their own decision on their party” and continues to insist that his name is now far bigger than himself, a symbol of a movement for free speech.
