Tommy Robinson blamed government ‘interference’ with social media companies for his failure to secure a seat in the European Parliament,
as he was narrowly defeated by a bitmoji.
Having claimed for weeks to be riding the crest of an international movement that elected Donald Trump in the US Tommy Robinson had expected to ‘walk into Brussels like Connor McGregor’ upon election as an MEP.
Instead he crashed and burned as the bitmoji rode the wave on one leg and then pissed on Robinson from a great height.
Looking a bit like a real human but with no personality or emotion,
Robinson stood as a candidate in the North West elections.
The former leader of the English Defence League said he was unable to fight a fair campaign because he was taken off various social media platforms. ‘Trump won his campaign on social media. Brexit was won on social media. I’m banned from social media.’ He said.
Which just goes to show that we do learn from our mistakes.
In an interview the bitmoji said he was ‘delighted’ to have been elected and that he’d be heading straight to Brussels to make a start – as he wanted to get a good couple of weeks of work in before Nigel Farage rolled up for his annual fifteen minutes of work.
Asked about his success the bitmoji said it was down to a campaign of not lying and making false claims, which he said was easy enough when you don’t talk – a campaign method that he hopes more politicians will go for in the future.
Although he did have one dodgy moment when he spilt a milkshake down himself on the campaign bus and for a moment questioned whether he’d turned into a racist.
