The footage was posted to Robinson’s social media accounts on both Facebook and Instagram over the weekend and shows the former English Defence League leader confronting Sweeney over his comments.
Sweeney seems to describe meeting a working-class white man named Danny in a BBC green room saying, “it was unusual to meet a white working class male in the Newsnight green room.”
Robinson has also released several live streams on Facebook claiming to have far more undercover footage of both Sweeney and of the far-left activist organisation HOPE not Hate who are claimed to have sat in on interviews filmed for the Panorama documentary on Robinson apparently labelled with the working title “Tommy Takedown.”
So far, neither Sweeney, the BBC, nor HOPE Not Hate have addressed Robinson’s released footage or claims of further revelations, although HOPE not HATE senior researcher Joe Mulhall briefly locked his Twitter account following the release of the footage.
More recently, in 2018, the organisation was listed in a Swedish Defence Research Agency (FOI) report on far-left extremist violence alongside the Swedish far-left activist group the Expo Foundation.
