Reports about activist Tommy Robinson’s arrest are being scrubbed from the internet after the British government ordered a ban on all reporting of the incident.
Robinson was arrested for “breaching the peace” outside the Leeds Crown Court on Friday as he was covering the trial of ten Muslim men for offenses including child rape, trafficking, and drug distribution.
Shortly after Robinson’s arrest, the British government put a gag-order on all articles reporting on it.
The judge in Tommy Robinson's case, Denise Marson, pulled a neat trick today.
She threw him in jail for 13 months, and banned anyone in the UK from talking about it.

British publications, as well as Breitbart’s London arm and RT were forced to delete their reports on Robinson’s arrest.
UPDATE: Breitbart forced to take down story about Tommy Robinson's arrest.
