Ezra Levant — March 12, 2020:
As promised, I went to London yesterday to attend a court hearing with Tommy Robinson. I live-tweeted from the courtroom, as I usually do — you can see those at my Twitter account, Twitter.com/EzraLevant if you like. It wasn’t that interesting, to be honest — one of the big battles that was supposed to happen involved the misconduct of one of the law firms suing Tommy. Incredibly, that law firm suddenly announced that it was dissolving, and its principal lawyer was leaving the country. Just amazing — on the eve of the hearing, they just vaporized, rather than fighting Tommy.
But that didn’t mean there weren’t plenty of lawyers there. There were — seven, in fact, debating minute legal points about the “meaning” of two videos that Tommy published about a Syrian migrant boy who was accused of beating up a British girl.
This wasn’t the main trial of that lawsuit. It was a preliminary matter to resolve the meaning of those pretty plain-spoken videos. And yet, as I just mentioned, there were still seven lawyers in the room — five for the Syrian boy and two for Tommy. One of the lawyers was named Mohammed Akunjee. I was unfamiliar with him at first, but I quickly learned that his speciality is representing ISIS terrorists, including Shamima Begum, the notorious “ISIS bride.” He’s involved with this lawsuit against Tommy. That shows you how political this is — it’s “lawfare”.
Here’s a video I made after the hearing:
I also spoke with Tommy about the sexual assault on his daughter, that happened at the Centre Parcs family resort. A group of middle-aged men were hanging out at the children’s pool — on their own, without their families — and one of them groped Tommy’s daughter. He admitted it when Tommy confronted him but said it was “an accident”. Incredibly, police arrested Tommy for assault, because Tommy physically detained the man till police arrived. The accused groper has not yet been charged.
Unfortunately, Tommy will have another court appearance for his assault charge in just a few weeks.
The establishment really is coming for Tommy. I’m glad I was able to get over there to talk with him and see how he’s doing, and to see what happened in court.
These journalist trips to London are a long way for me to go, but I always learn something that I wouldn’t have learned had I relied on the mainstream media. For example, don’t you think it’s quite telling that Britain’s leading lawyer for terrorists is part of the team hunting Tommy? I sure do — but apparently the Media Party doesn’t want you to know that.
I’ll keep reporting on Tommy’s trials as long as I can — hopefully the Coronavirus won’t interfere. I guess we’ll see soon enough.
Thank you for your support — for me, and for Tommy.

Ezra Levant — March 11, 2020:
Our friend Tommy Robinson is in trouble again. He’s asked me to come to London to help. So I’m leaving tonight.
He’s got old trouble — there’s a court hearing in the morning about that Syrian migrant who is suing Tommy. I’ll be there, I’ll tell you what happens, I’ll do videos outside the court and live-tweet from the inside.
As you know, the law firm that was suing Tommy hired an obscene, profane Antifa thug to deliver the lawsuit to Tommy’s family home, the home of Tommy’s wife and kids. A law firm, hiring someone to make threats to a man’s family.
That’s relevant because Tommy has witnesses who are willing to testify about the case. But they’re schoolmates of this Syrian migrant, so they’re young, and they’re afraid that if their identity is disclosed to the migrant’s lawyers, they’ll be bullied in this obscene way, too. They might be physically threatened.
So tomorrow’s hearing is whether or not the identity of Tommy’s witnesses have to be handed over to the people who hired a monster to scare Tommy’s family.
But there’s a second matter that I’m going to talk to Tommy about. And it’s the case of three middle-aged Muslim men who were hanging around the children’s pool at a family resort — without their own wives or children with them — and one of them groped Tommy’s eight-year-old daughter.
Tommy being Tommy, he went over and accosted them, and restrained the groper till police came.
The man admitted he groped Tommy’s daughter. He said it was an “accident”. Well, incredibly, when the police came, they refused to arrest the confessed groper or even seize his cell phone to look for photos; instead, they arrested Tommy. For assault.
You know it’s just so they can put Tommy away for a long, long time. They literally let the admitted groper go. They arrested Tommy instead.
I’m going to London tonight. I’ll sleep on the plane. I land in the morning and go straight to court. I’ll report on the hearing as to whether Tommy’s witnesses have to tell the thuggish law firm their identity. And then I’ll interview Tommy about the charges against him.
I think it’s important — and here’s why:
Every single British media outlet reported that Tommy was arrested and charged at the swimming pool. But not one of them — that I saw — even mentioned that it was for holding down a man who had admitted to groping his eight-year-old daughter.
Do you see what I mean? If I don’t go to report on these things, not only will we not know what happens, but we’ll be told the opposite. It’s technically true that Tommy was charged. But imagine writing that as a reporter, but not even mentioning why, or what, or who.
I’m off tonight. Can you please help me? I have an economy-class plane ticket. It cost me just under £1,000 or $1,500 Canadian. Plus cab fare to and from the court and I’ll probably buy Tommy lunch. And then I’m heading home tomorrow night — I’ll sleep on the plane again, so no need for a hotel.
If you can, please chip in to cover my costs. Please visit www.TommyTrial.com or click here. That’s also the website where I’ll post all of my videos from the courthouse, and my interview with Tommy.
Thanks — and see you tomorrow in London.
