As it has gone quiet on the Daniel Morgan murder cover up front (New Scotland Yard are trying to avoid paying £3.9 million to Jonathan Rees and the Vian Brothers) it is time to have a quick shufti at what is happening with Tommy Robinson.

Plod attempt to frame Mr Yaxley-Lennon and to avoid paying compensation to those wrongly arrested. Either take a financial hit by paying up, or an equivalent amount in damage.
