Tommy Robinson being sent to prison was the best thing to happen to the far right since Nigel Farage shaved his moustache.

All that’s fucked now, as the courts have released him on bail.

  • #FreeTommy jackboots.

Tommy’s release leaves the sellers of this tat up shit creek. The upside is they do have paddles. The downside is no one wants to buy a paddle with a #FreeTommy logo on it.

Folk wails

Perhaps the most inconvenienced person of all is Katie Hopkins.

Hopkins was in the middle of recording a folk concept album called Tommy (But Not the One About Pinball). She’d even taught herself how to play the lute and sing in what one listener described as:

A hideous falsetto – a sound like an angry cat fellating a firework.

Still, though, there’s hope for them on the horizon. Tommy is out on a technicality, and he’s already admitted committing contempt. He could potentially even get a longer stretch when he’s re-sentenced.

As such, expect to see #FreeTommy turkeys in time for Christmas.
