What was that you were saying about how claims that Britain is becoming a totalitarian police state are exaggerated and hysterical?
A FIREFIGHTER claims he was suspended after posting a message in support of Tommy Robinson on Facebook.
Robinson, real name Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, was jailed for contempt of court after live streaming outside a criminal trial at Leeds Crown Court.
Supporters of the former EDL boss have called for him to be released, and held various protests.
Now, a firefighter has taken to his social media account “Jono Booth” and claims to have been suspended after supporting Robinson on Facebook.
The open account account messaged publicly in support of jailed Robinson.
After a number of messages, the account claimed the firefighter was leaving Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service after being suspended over his conduct on Facebook.
The post read: “Well after 22 years in the fire service as a firefighter for Nottinghamshire, yesterday I had a phone call from the fire service saying that I’ve been suspended from duty with immediate effect and I had to hand in my on call alerter and photo I.D card.
“On asking for what reason this was happening I was told I was going to be investigated on some of the content I had recently put on Facebook.”
He added: “Since yesterday morning’s phone call from them I have since handed my notice in at the fire service.
“Firefighter Booth signing off.”…
