Real quick thread for those journalists and/or conservative pundits who want to turn this bloke, Daniel Thomas, into some sort of harassed 'Leaver', being bullied by horrid 'Remainers'. /1

This young man, who calls himself 'Danny Tommo', first made headlines when he was arrested and convicted for an attempted kidnap - turns out he targeted the wrong guy. /2  https://www.portsmouth.co.uk/news/crime/bungling-armed-kidnappers-jailed-for-stupid-attempt-1-7501996/ 

After a few aimless years, Thomas latched on to the growing celebrity of 'Tommy Robinson', calling himself his right-hand man. He was photographed organising Far Right rallies with @UKIP and representatives of the Islamophobic Middle East Forum. /3  https://www.telegraph.co.uk/politics/2018/12/01/revealed-far-right-ukip-brexit-demo-organiser-convicted-kidnapper/amp/ 

During 'Tommy Robinson's' campaign to become an MEP, Thomas was captured starting fights, most notably in Warrington. /4

In fact, Alice Edwards was beaten by Thomas during a brawl in Warrington and is currently pursuing justice against him. /5  https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.theguardian.com/uk-news/2019/may/03/woman-claims-tommy-robinson-ally-broke-her-nose-at-cheshire-event 

Despite attempts to rebrand himself as a media personality, supposedly 'exposing' victims of CSA, Thomas if nothing but a thug, an agitator and a criminal.

The information is out there, and journalists and pundits have no excuse for ignorance.

Do better. /FIN
