Tommy Robinson feels his family are at risk in this country. So he is relocating to another country to ensure they are safe and can thrive. Finding a house. Putting his children into schools. Hoping to give them a better life.
Let. That. Sink. In.

Also anyone else find it ironic how Tommy Robinson spent him time endlessly abusing refugees and now he has gone to another country for safety?

I really hope Tommy Robinson’s just emigrating and not part of a racist exchange programme.

I hope the people of Spain extend ‘Tommy Robinson’ the same warmth and understanding as he’s always extended to those seeking to make a better life for themselves in the UK.

So Tommy Robinson who has made his entire career about demonising people fleeing their home countries due to fear of violence – he is now fleeing his home country due to fear of violence AND does videos expecting us all to feel sorry for him
The man is a next level charlatan

He changed his name from Stephen Yaxley-Lennon to Tommy Robinson to hide his Irish immigrant parents, now he’s a refugee in Spain, perhaps Juan Kerr?

Wait, so Tommy Robinson is a refugee now? Also, does he realise Spain is filled with all those foreigner types he’s not too keen on? What next? Katie Hopkins moving to Dubai?
