Over 40 women’s organisations and charities have dismissed Tommy Robinson’s promise of money as a “profound insult”, according to a report in the leftist weekly newspaper The Socialist Worker. The controversial figure, who has portrayed himself as a man interested in the rights of women, pledged to give “100 percent” of his salary to “child victims of grooming” if he’s elected as an MEP for the North West. He is standing as an independent in forthcoming European elections. An open letter, published on Friday, slams Mr Robinson for trying to blame Muslims for abuse. It said, “Tommy doesn't care about the rights of women and girls—he is exploiting the pain of survivors and their families to fuel racist hate for his own gain.” Signatories include a variety of respected charities including End Violence Against Women, the Girls Coalition, Refugee Women founder Natasha Walter, Rape Crisis Surrey and Sussex, Rape Crisis South London and the Women's Centre Cornwall.
