Here's to you, Mr Robinson?

Is it just me, or is founding the EDL and then quitting as leader because it attracts far-right extremists not much like founding the RSPCA and then quitting because it attracts animal lovers?

Still, fair play to the Quilliam group, who appear to have helped Tommy Robinson and his co-leader Kevin Carroll to reach the decision to quit, leaving the organisation damaged and directionless. But, as other figures have commented, Quilliam have been a bit hasty in hailing their resignations as a triumph for reason, tolerance and democracy - time will tell if the leopards really have decided to change their spots, but somehow I suspect that neither has undergone a Damascene conversion.
