As Lennon is not on Twitter any more, it fell to his pal Daniel Thomas, aka Danny Tommo, the failed amateur comedy kidnapper, to tell the world “WE NEED HELP IN TELFORD TODAY! VICTIMS ARE BEING TARGETED BY THE PAKISTANI GROOMING GANGS!!!”
Anyone for surveillance?
Eh? The Tweeter known as @fahaunty had more. “Robinson is claiming that as a result of his 'Rape of Britain' so-called investigation and upcoming video report one survivor's mother's home has been attacked and a number of other survivors' cars have been set on fire and is appealing for men to join him in Telford at midday” (thread HERE).
Lennon claimed the cops were doing nothing: he summoned his faithful supporters to a nearby Toby Carvery and they later gathered at the property allegedly attacked, openly publishing the address, which Zelo Street will not. Then, later, came an escalation: “Pakistani Gangs in Telford have blown up [Tommy Robinson’s] car!”.
Danny Tommo helpfully Tweeted out Lennon’s video, filmed in front of a local Police station. But where were the images of the supposedly blown up car? Where, indeed, was the Police incident reference? Where were the arrests? Were there any arrests? Well, later on, there was an arrest. One of Lennon’s gofers had been arrested.
The reason, it seems, is illegal activity was undertaken, allegedly on behalf of Lennon, and that activity is surveillance. @fahaunty is again on the case: “A member of Robinson's surveillance team has been arrested by [West Mercia Police] for alleged harassment, his van, surveillance equipment and computer have been seized and his bail conditions include being banned from entering Shropshire. Robinson is not happy and is hiding”.
Why so? "From my understanding of the law, Robinson's use of covert surveillance and tracking of members of the public is illegal. If correct this could lead to additional charges, including charges against Robinson who employed individuals to carry out the covert surveillance on his behalf”. Vigilantism is against the law. Who knew?
Lennon may not have, but he does now. But he remains defiant, claiming in a video that lawyers acting for some of his targets are trying to stop his upcoming film being aired. However, he adds, “Right now, the location I’m at, you can’t do that”. He knew “the Police would try to prevent this”, thus confusing policing and legal action.
“You might have arrested one of our team. You gave him bail conditions preventing him from continuing his work [banned from Shropshire, he means]”. And the cops are going to arrest him, he claims - but “There will be instructions given to air the film the minute I’m arrested”. So he’s on the run, and making threats against the Police, which will, with the certainty of night following day, not end well for him. Or any of his gofers.
Stephen Lennon may be heading for his own last roundup. Just rejoice at that news.
