By continually pursuing Tommy Robinson the UK Government is giving more reason for right-wing extremism to grow and become potentially a terror threat. The divisions caused by Brexit and the vigorous and seemingly unfair pursuit of Tommy Robinson and Britain First will be seen by a potentially extreme minority as a Government and its Establishment trying to suppress ‘a voice or voices of the People. Any penalties applied to transgressions of law by the growing right wing in the UK should not be seen as an attempt to silence them – which is how most people will view them. Terrorism does not need more UK homegrown reasons to become a real threat – but the UK Government is making it so. Right wing extremism is likely to be more ‘lone wolf’ than Islamic extremism and is difficult to identify. The Security services in the UK do not have the resources to cope with even more UK originated terrorism. Tommy Robinson and Brian Gould have a growing support base and it is time the UK establishment recognised the need to address why that support is growing. The Government of the United Kingdom is the Government of all the People not some of the People. The UK is a very divided Nation and will become more so Post Brexit. Society has to be inclusive not exclusive. Whether you support Tommy Robinson and Britain First or not, views have to be able to be discussed and exchanged – if that intercourse is not allowed then extremism will be the result. Tommy Robinson and Brian First do not condone Violence but without doubt there will be somebody somewhere in the UK who will be triggered into an act of terrorism by the way the State has ‘picked on them’. , Their Views on Islam are in my view an unnecessary and unwarranted diversion from the problems of how to cope with a Population size which has outgrown the social and physical resources to cope with the increasing population size. However their views are a direct result of the UK Government’s failure to understand the effects of a increasingly diverse population on the social cohesion of the United Kingdom.
