Someone's been on the happy pills again


So it turns out that Tommy Robinson is intending to stand as an independent against Gerard Batten's UKIP up 'ere in't North West. (Didn't see that coming!). The BBC reported his announcement along with Hope No Hats' call for voters to come out and oppose him. To my astonishment though, the BBC let slip in that piece that Tommy Robinson's "real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon". Who knew? Everyone's been keeping very quiet about that!

  1. An even funnier thing happened on Politics Live yesterday or the day before when Coburn referred to Stephen Yaxley-Lennon standing for election - without mentioning Tommy Robinson.
    I've often wondered why the BBC doesn't use his 'real' name when it is so intent of proclaiming it. Can't recall whether I've actually posed the question here or whether anyone else has asked them that.
