It takes a nation to protect the nation
So, after watching this, the next time anyone bad mouths Tommy and the EDL leadership, you can tell them where to go.
This video has been around for a few weeks, but even though I've given more money to the EDL than to all the other charitable organisations in the past 20 years, I knew that Tommy was not in this to make money for himself. Everytime the stupid allegations would be made (by so-called "patriots") it took no more than 60 seconds to show them the simple maths involved and to show that their expectations of the income of the EDL was massively wide of the mark. But in this Tommy finally puts it to rest -- and I hope that he never has to waste time and effort on this kind of defence in future. It would be good if EDL did make enough money to employ him (and a few others) in a full-time capacity. They are the ones who are truly working for social cohesion, not the thousands of muslim organisations getting £millions of our taxes.
So, I didn't even bother watching this until tonight. I know Tommy is aware of the circle around him who trust him implicitly.
Given how much Tommy Robinson has already risked to save this country, I wouldn't have a problem if he had taken some of the money for himself!
Tommy was right in saying that we should look at the motives of the so called patriots. Making allegations about the EDL leadership with no evidence looks like a left wing hatchet job to me.
Tommy, The strategy is to wear you and the EDL out with questions which are infinitely easier to ask than to answer; To throw mud/lies around in the hope that some of it sticks and again are much easier to do than to disprove the lies. When security is an issue transparency is more difficult but some sensible compromises must be possible so that the national leadership concentrates on stratigic matters like national demos and campaigns. Financial matters like this must never bog you down again. Let others deal with the yapping puppies nipping at your ankles. onward!
