But Tommy has not changed his view, clearly. Just yesterday came this:
Remember, this is the new 'reformed, peaceful, reasonable' Tommy Robinson. However that quotation, and that sentiment, comes straight from his days of leading the English Defence League - the dreaded spectre of 'Forced Repatriation'.
His co-leader, Ukip's Anne Marie Waters, has yet to comment on this. Her struggle to muzzle or house-train Tommy is failing.
Clearly this weekend's PegidaUK 'Silent March' in Birmingham will tell us whether PegidaUK is indeed (as they claim) a peaceful pressure group ... or just another bunch of drunken Neo Nazi thugs intent on Hate.
We suspect the latter. "New Era", eh? Looking suspiciously like the 'Old Era'.
