Tommy Robinson is a British far-right activist and a political adviser to the Leader of the UK Independence Party. He is also the co-founder of the English Defence League and a former member of the British National Party. In 2015, he published a book of memoirs called Tommy Robinson: Enemy of the State.

Robinson was a very controversial figure in his time with the EDL. While he portrayed the EDL as being “against the rise of radial Islam” and not against Islam, many of its members were considered to be anti-Muslim. He was convicted in 2011 of using threatening, abusive or insulting behaviour during a fight between supoorters of Luton Town and Newport County in which he was a key part of a 100-man brawl. He’d then be arrested again for attending an EDL demonstration, which he was not allowed to do as part of his bail. He’d later be convicted of assaulting a fellow EDL member which led to another charge.
