A spokesperson for the Home Office has confirmed that Tommy Robinson has been released from prison after a huge campaign on social media. 

He said, ‘We have noticed hundreds of thousands of posts with the phrase ‘Free Tommy Robinson,’ and we so had a look over our records and the only prisoner we had with this legal name was Thomas Robinson, an 85-year-old gentleman from Suffolk who was serving a ten-year sentence for trying to sexually interfere with a chicken in Ipswich.’

’As his sentence only had a few months left to run, we have authorised his release as a matter of goodwill.’

’It’s not clear why there has been such a huge outpouring of support for a humble poultry enthusiast, but we have listened to the people.’

’We’re pretty certain he is the man who they were talking about.’
