Main content

Follow this EDM by:


That this House notes that an invitation has been issued to Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, also known as Tommy Robinson, to speak at events in Washington DC on 14 November 2018; further notes that these invitations have been issued by anti-Muslim think tanks the Middle East Forum and the David Horowitz Freedom Center, and by seven Republican Party members of Congress; notes that Yaxley-Lennon is believed to be currently subject to a banning order barring him from the US because of criminal convictions for acts of violence, and for entering the US illegally in 2012; believes that if the US Administration bows to pressure from right wing groups and figures allied with the Trump administration and overturns Yaxley-Lennon's ban and allow him into the US, the media exposure and the money he could raise on the trip will have a detrimental impact on community relations in the UK; and calls on the Government to urgently make representations to the US Administration urging it to maintain the banning order.
