Tommy Robinson has made a U-turn on his decision to leave the UK and move to Spain permanently.

The former EDL leader claimed he fled the UK after being a victim of an arson attack – he has however blasted "snowflakes" and said they will not drive him out.

In a video posted yesterday, Robinson, who's real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, said he was not moving to Spain permanently.

He said he feared for his family’s safety in a video circulating on Twitter earlier this week.

He had announced his family would be moving because they are "not safe."

In footage from Marbella, the tanned-looking rabble-rouser said: "Let me just clarify something for the record.

"I'm not moving abroad, I'm not permanently moving anywhere. My home is England."

The 37-year-old admitted many had been "triggered" when he was said to be weighing up leaving the UK, given his previous anti-immigrant diatribes, reports Mirror Online.

But he continued: "To all those snowflakes who think you've got rid of me, no you didn't.

"I've just had - how do I put this - some location issues to deal with which are for my family not myself, which will clear myself up for the work I do, even more so."

And signing off the end of his latest message, the extremist said: "I'll seen you soon when I'm back in the UK, on the streets of England doing what I do."

As Mirror Online revealed this week, Robinson fled to Spain after an alleged arson attack on his wife's property.

In a video on Monday, he said he fled the country in his car and accepted an offer of a place to stay overseas.

Speaking about the alleged arson, he said: "It was targeted against my wife's property.

"At that point we left the country straight away and I'm looking at relocating my family, which is pretty hard to do, especially with Covid — I couldn't even get a hotel.

"Obviously my wife has had enough of everything — someone gave her somewhere to stay, so we left the country, and I was due to be flying back for the demonstration, but now with this 14-day quarantine, I probably won't get back out and my kids are out here."

Mr Robinson added that he had found new schools for his daughters and is in the process of finding a "permanent relocation" for them.

He said: "I need my family to be away because they are not safe basically."

The activist claimed the alleged arson took place "after all the BLM (Black Lives Matter) stuff" and that he thought he knew who committed the act.
