I really wish I didn’t keep talking and writing about this. Hopefully TR.News’s video on why Tommy hates Nazis (did we really have to say this?) and my video podcast here about the specific issues surrounding Shazia Hobbs will let us draw a line under this and move forward. I’ve already published here and here about this.
In essence Shazia wrote something that would be read as antisemitic. It could have been fixed relatively easily. The editor of TR.News knew all this and didn’t want it on Tommy’s site. He explained the issues to Shazia but she decided she wanted to stand by what she’d written and published it elsewhere. Once it was picked up and promoted by hard core ethno-nationalists and those with Nazi sympathies (no matter how well concealed they keep this) Shazia became a liability for TR.News and Tommy Robinson.
