True North’s Andrew Lawton spoke with Gerard Batten, the former Member of the European Parliament and leader of Ukip, about the Queen’s Bench Division of the High Court’s finding of contempt at the end of Tommy Robinson’s two-day trial. Batten, who was criticized as Ukip leader by the mainstream media for appointing Robinson as a special adviser, told Andrew it’s paramount to stand up against the rising threat of radical Islam, which means reporting what may be uncomfortable truths.
