EDL founder Tommy Robinson has quit the group, saying he is no longer able to keep the “extremist elements” at bay.
In a statement, Robinson said:
“I have been considering this move for a long time because I recognise that, though street demonstrations have brought us to this point, they are no longer productive. I acknowledge the dangers of far-right extremism and the ongoing need to counter Islamist ideology not with violence but with better, democratic ideas.”
“Better, democratic ideas?” Is it possible he’s planning to run for something?
