You might have thought that the news of a UK journalist winning the international Free Press Society’s 2019 Sappho award and being presented it in the Danish Parliament in Copenhagen, Denmark, would generate great excitement and extensive coverage in the UK media. But NOT when that journalist is called Tommy Robinson. Instead, it has gone unreported and the media don’t seem remotely interested.

Previous esteemed winners of the Sappho award include Ezra Levant, Mark Steyn and the late Sir Roger Scruton.

The organisers of the Sappho Award spell out the basis on which the award is considered. The Free Press Society’s freedom of expression award, the Sappho Award, is awarded to a person who has shown uncompromising courage in the struggle for the free word.

Regardless of how one views some of Tommy Robinson’s actions, it’s hard to think of anyone who has shown greater courage over the past few years in his pursuit of justice for the many victims of the UK grooming gangs. His treatment at the hands of the UK legacy media has been abominable.

Here is Tommy’s acceptance speech.


  1. But NOT when that journalist is called Tommy Robinson

    Tommy Robinson’s a journalist? When did that start? A ‘journalist’ in the sense that Jamie Bryson, Rowan Croft or any other eegit with a Twitter account can be a ‘journalist’ maybe.

    That ‘journalism’ gig must pay well though as Tom Thug lives it up in his £950,000 house, boasting of the dosh he’s conned off gullible dolts.

  2. in his pursuit of justice for the many victims of the UK grooming gangs

    my understanding is he jeopardised a number of trials that almost cost the taxpayer millions of pounds and was found guilty of obstructing justice several times and went to jail for it.

    Just the Facts

  3. The International Free Press Society is a Danish anti-Islam organisation, at least I’ve never heard it being mentioned outside the contest of anti-Islam.

    Still, any award for freedom of expression is good, even if so narrowly focussed.

    In Germany for the past week or so, the state media have been full of stories about the new domestic threat from people who don’t accept the principles of liberal democracy and who have little respect for the country and its values.
    Interviews are held, pious declarations made, viewers are urged to show civil courage in facing up to such unacceptable attitudes…….

    They mean exclusively people on the right-wing, of course, and nothing shows the need for opposition to this smug media consensus more than the fact that they can with a straight face completely ignore other, much broader, elements in the population who – you can take my word for it – have just as little respect for “the principles of liberal democracy” as right-wingers do.

  4. The organization issuing the award isn’t noted for its journalistic integrity as much as it is noted for anti-Islamic sentiment. Lacking the former but awash in the latter the recipient was tailor made for this award.

  5. Even after thousands of Americans, along with many Europeans, including children, murdered and blown to pieces in cold blood by Muslim Islamists, including many children, not to mention the mass industrial rape and tortures by Muslim Third world Stone Age thinking Islamists, Mahons still apparently believes that Tommy Robinson from Luton is the problem?

    I understand Liberal righteous points don’t come cheap, but ffs!

    Just how sick minded are liberal progressives?

    Liberals, exactly what part of “bring in the third world, you get third world” do you not get?

    Stupidity isn’t a crime, but when it comes to righteous point scoring liberal progressives, maybe it would be prudent for governments to legislate against it.

    And safer.

  7. This is what happens when an African tries the same shit on a man, not a lone female.

    It just so happens to be Tommy Robinson.


  8. Congratulations to Mr Robinson. It’s very well deserved recognition for his great work in defence of genuine liberalism.
