Robinson’s political nous seems to have deserted him. After a non-productive 5 months in the obscure BFP he has now left. Claiming he had ‘looked into the future’ and it didn’t feature the BFP the mystic meg of the EDL now says he wants to transform the EDL into a political party and contest the Euro elections in 2014. He made this announcement this afternoon – whether he intends to take the EDL off the streets and into the polling booths is unclear – and may come as a shock to the rest of the EDL. Fighting the Euro elections will be a dud because he will come up against a resurgent UKIP who will be far better placed to take advantage of the right wing xenophobe vote. Robinson made a tactical blunder joining the BFP and there will be plenty of others who think he has made another one. He is making the same journey as Griffin – from the skinheads to the suits – with the same farcical outcome guaranteed. Robinson will brave the cries of ‘sell out’ and take a few with him but it won’t be long before a new street fuhrer emerges but ‘for you Tommy the war is over’.
