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/ …
