A Collapsing British Government

The British Government will Keep Fighting for Control, but this will Not Work in their Favour

On August 1, 2018 an appeal to the Crown Court was granted to Tommy Robinson, declaring his arrest, imprisonment, and treatment while incarcerated as unlawful and unjustified. As a result, he was released on bail (the logic on this fact is still flawed) after serving just over two months of an original thirteen month sentence.

Despite this declaration, Mr. Robinson has been called back to court for a second trial (though there was technically no trial the first time around, since there were only hours between arrest and being taken to HM Hull) on the same charge. This is an example of an incessant attack from the British government upon a man who poses a threat to their ever-noticeable agenda.

The trial is intended to begin on September 1st, however this date could change. The appeasing U.K. government has been backed into a corner, unable to control a situation which directly endangers it. The British people have begun to stray from the lies pushed by many political figures, including Theresa May herself, whose approval rating is at a low of 30%.

They now have two choices: one is to continue to target Tommy Robinson and hope that his supporters give up on justice and truth, the second is to leave him alone and hope that less attention is drawn to him and people shut up. Neither is likely to succeed at this point, so the approach they actually take cannot be known with certainty.

One thing that can be known is that support for Tommy Robinson has massively increased due to exposure produced by his latest incarceration. Now a large group of people have started to doubt the Conservative Party since they have shifted into an authoritarian-left position. As a result Labour has gained a lead over the Tories (Conservatives) due to Conservative voters leaving the party. A political gap is present for a centre-right party or individual to fill.

This space may be embraced by increased support for UKIP or For Britain, or by true conservative politicians associated with the Conservative Party such as Boris Johnson. One thing is for certain: this government has seriously messed up, they are intending to carry on, and it will probably not work in their favour.
