One of the world’s loudest critics of radical Islam Tommy Robinson has been arrested again in the UK. This time for "breaching the peace" by live facebook-streaming outside a child-grooming trial in West Yorkshire.
Australian Conservatives founder Cory Bernardi says he thinks a massive injustice has taken place.
The journalist and founder of the English Defence League, has been speaking out against the threat of Islamic extremism for nearly a decade and was detained, without legal representation last Friday morning.
Hundreds of demonstrators have descended on central London in support of Robinson – demanding he be freed.
The demonstrations have even spread to Australia, with protests hitting the streets of major Australian cities this week.
Senator Bernardi spoke to Ben Fordham on Sky News after a petition calling for Robinson’s release gathered more than 300,000 signatures.
