I share this prime membership with my wife and she has hundreds of Kindle books, many of them so badly formatted they were an effort for her to finish. Bah, humbug. So much for your vaunted customer service.
I've met Tommy Robinson, he of the restless energy and dedicated love of English culture and history. I came away impressed: what you see in this book is the real fellow. My guess is that a series of interviews over many months were woven into a narrative whole, warts and all.
When the history of this period comes to be written, "Tommy Robinson" will figure prominently as a charismatic figure the soviet UK persecuted and prosecuted mercilessly. As he said in an interview on Canadian TV recently, he knows he may be assassinated but the work has become too important to stop now.
You'd think the British government would know it cannot beat a smart, stubborn Irishman. However, all the King's horses and all the King's men certainly can - and *have* done numberless times - silence inconvenient dissent. In this case, they won't leave fingerprints but they and their paid puppets will blame Tommy for "bringing in on himself".
The U.S. isn't much better, just bigger and harder to control.
Tommy is unsparing about his own faults and mistakes. Too bad Bezos hasn't a thimbleful of Tommy's courage.
Enemy of the State is a deeply disturbing tale of one mans psychological waterboarding by the state for the simple crime of telling the truth about horrors taking place on our streets. Well written, the book gives deep insight into what motivates this remarkable working class Englishman. Whether youre on the left or right of the argument you will will be horrified by what Robinson has been through and humbled by his honesty. The book is an account of his personal bravery, courage convictions and hard work, his love for his home town of Luton his friends(black and white),family and of course his country England.
The book describes how for the sake of his children's future,nay, all our children's futures, he has routinely put himself in great danger, if not from violent and bloodthirsty street gangs or radicalized prison inmates then from highly polished and skilled professional interviewers like Paxman or Neil who despite their intimidating and aggressive questioning were hardly a match for his simply spoken truths about reality on the streets. In all situations he gave as good as he got and came out on top.
The EDL methodology he describes could easily have sparked serious unrest, but hes honest enough to admit to the mistakes he made while simply trying to stay alive.
I read the book in one day, straight through, a fascinating and rewarding read and expose' of the child rape which has swept the UK and the despicable way the nation as a whole turned a blind eye to it. The book is a challenge to judgement, almost prophetic.
The book isnt an ego trip for Robinson just an heroic tale of one mans personal struggle to sound the alarm and avert disaster.
Waiting for the movie which must surely follow if it isnt already in the making.

Tommy describes his life growing up in Luton, a mid-sized city comprised of mostly immigrant communities, and the experiences that have motivated his decisions to start a mass protest movement (the English Defense League or EDL) centered around stopping the "Islamization" of the UK. The story is written in first person narrative with a significant amount of English slang (and grammatical mistakes). The humbleness of the writing style leaves little doubt that the story was written by Tommy himself (and not some ghost writer). While depicted in comedic terms, Tommy describes an extraordinarily dark and depressing journey full of injustice and abuse. Stranger than fiction, the book is rather engrossing and a page turner, and includes stories about corruption within the British political system, police force, and social services. For an American, this book reads like one big nightmare from start to finish where Tommy's rights are whittled away as the state engages in what we would consider cruel and unusual punishment (where the punishment doesn't fit the crime). The tactics used to silence him can only be described as Orwellian. These kinds of incidences shouldn't be taking place in a first world developed democracy (regardless of the author's demagoguery). In the book, Tommy describes many very real (and documented) problems of criminality within the Muslim communities to which he (and his family/friends) have personally been victim. He appears to have concluded that Islam is the root cause. That contention is certainly debatable. What is not debatable, but very blatantly obvious after reading Tommy's book, is the complete failure on the part of Britain's leaders to enforce equal justice and police their Muslim immigrant populations. Their failure has not only led to resentment among people like Tommy, which provided the spark for the EDL, but also has allowed radical Islamist hate preachers and gangs to dominate poorer communities with thuggery.
With that, I can only say peace to Tommy and his family.
