The Plot thickens, there is far more to this than meets the eye, look at their faces, what does that tell you.
Not sure, but if we was in his place and backed up against a wall with the firing squad gazing down the barrels of their guns, you have two.
Choices, 1) play their game and lose everything, 2) lose everything, and be castrated, I would choose No.1.
Put in that situation, and being a true patriot who had to denounce the EDL as extremists, and at the same time lose maybe all their friends and family by this move, as a course of action to keep his family and friends safe, the next course of action would be to go “Underground”, take the offer, so as to play them all at their own games, and TAKE THE BASTARDS DOWN FROM THE INSIDE.

Louise, when one goes underground or undercover, one doesn’t announce it to the world on TV and press conferences. Tommy and Kevin are not spies. And they will have absolutely no ability to take down anything from the inside.

Read this. Either they suckered Tommy into this via extreme threats or blackmail or he’s infiltrating
“However, senior figures working in the growing field of the study of counter-extremism and the rehabilitation of former extremists have been viewing its link-up with Robinson as a high-stakes gamble that has raised serious questions about the motivations of an organisation that has played a particularly controversial role.
If the latest accounts – for the financial year up to March 2012 – filed by the Quilliam Foundation are anything to go by, the high-profile injection of publicity also comes at a time when it may be facing challenging financial circumstances.
Two years after the Home Office began to wind down its funding for the organisation, those accounts show that Quilliam was facing mounting debts, while having little in the way of relative assets. Income from training, consultancy and publications were haemorrhaging, while its income from grants and donations fell from just over £900,000 in 2011 to £532,099 in 2012.
The company was in particular trouble in 2011, making a loss, but after taking radical action to cut back on expenses and parting company with half of its staff, it was just about able to make it into the red again in the following year, when Nawaz paid himself £77,438.
The situation is a far cry from Quilliam’s earlier years, after its founding by Nawaz and Ed Hussain, another former Islamist who penned a memoir about his time in the radical Hizb ut-Tahrir (HT) group. Launched in a blaze of publicity, the group was the recipient of millions of pounds of government funding and backing from officials initially impressed with the group’s embrace of anti-extremism.
According to a source familiar with its government ties, links eventually became frayed. “There was a sense that they just were not fulfilling their original remit. They had become flattered by Whitehall and Westminster, and were far too focused on producing reports and material that frankly was just not relevant to their actual aims and objectives, when what they should have been doing was countering extremism in communities.”
“All funding is accounted for responsibly, and we are externally audited annually. Specific details of Quilliam’s finances are published in our annual report.”
However, journalists who asked for a copy of the annual report this week were told by a press officer: “There is only one print copy and that that has gone missing.”
The reaction of figures from Quilliam to those who raised questions about the Robinson link-up was also a sharp one. The foundation’s head of outreach, Ghaffar Hussain, criticised “the usual coterie of trendy wine bar types” who had voiced sceptism about Robinson’s departure from the EDL.”

Charlotte, thanks for that. I still don’t want to believe the worst about Tommy. I do hope he has an ulterior motive for going there that has nothing to do with money or dhimmitude.
