This is one "journalist" I would wholeheartedly support being given a right kicking, literally as well as figuratively.

A High Court judge has ruled on allegedly libellous remarks made by Tommy Robinson about a Syrian boy.

The English Defence League founder is being sued by Jamal Hijazi, who featured in a viral video of a playground attack.

The family's case against Robinson, real name Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, centres on comments made on Facebook...


...Videos made by Mr Yaxley-Lennon, 37, claimed Mr Hijazi was "not innocent and he violently attacks young English girls in his school".

He also claimed Mr Hijazi "beat a girl black and blue" and "threatened to stab" another boy.

Mr Hijazi "emphatically denies" the allegations.

His lawyers claim Mr Yaxley Lennon's "racist invective" led to the teenager and his family being targeted by "far-right activists" and forced them to leave the area...


...Delivering his ruling, the judge rejected Mr Hijazi's claim that Mr Yaxley-Lennon's statements would be understood to suggest other "incidents of violence" beyond those identified in the two videos.

"In my judgment, the viewer would recognise that the defendant was making a specific allegation of violent conduct against the claimant," he said.

The ordinary and reasonable viewer of the videos would understand Mr Robinson to have been speaking "figuratively" when he said Mr Hijazi was "not innocent, he attacks young girls".

But the judge also rejected Mr Yaxley-Lennon's suggested meaning of the statements, which, he said, "fails to capture the gravity of the allegation being made against the claimant", namely, that the girl had been "beaten black and blue".

Mr Yaxley-Lennon's interpretation also "ignores, completely, the allegation of a threat to stab the boy that is made clearly in the first video", the judge said.

In his ruling, Mr Justice Nicklin stated: "It is important to note that the court is only dealing with the issue of meaning.

"The defendant has advanced a defence of truth. Unless the parties resolve the litigation, that issue (and others) will be determined at a later trial."...

Let me guess. He was assaulted just before the cameras started rolling.

'embroiled themselves in politics'?

embroiled themselves in fucking politics?

Oi, you BBC twat, that's called taking a stand for decency and dignity you pathetic little bellender. Perhaps if the BBC had 'embroiled' itself a little more in these issues the gammon wouldn't be so fucking ignorant and obtuse.
