The former English Defence League leader announced at a barbecue in Wynthenshawe, south Manchester he will stand in the European elections as an independent candidate in the North West of England. According to Sky News, Mr Robinson was offering free food for his fans from a catering van but police officers told him to stop as he was violating electoral law by bribing voters.
The barbecue went ahead despite the rainy weather for the event and Mr Robinson said he had chosen Wynthenshawe for the event as people in the area “have been forgotten and betrayed at every level”.
At the event Mr Robinson said: “Everyone is so disillusioned with the liars in parliament, but that is also our weakness.
“It is the reason we are being betrayed and will continue being betrayed until they fear us.
“The only way they will fear us is if we take their seats.”
Mr Robinson told 300 people at the event close to Manchester that he would be representing England’s “betrayed” working class.
He has said he will campaign across working class communities in the North West to try and snatch votes from Labour.
Before Mr Robinson, also known as Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, went to Wythenshawe, Labour MP Mike Kane for the area said: “Yaley-Lennon’s far-right political views are not welcome in our town and in our great city.”
