UK arrested Tommy Robinson for reporting child-rape gangs that the government caters to. The UK began forbidding journalists from reporting on the child-rape gangs and now forbids them from reporting on Tommy's arrest. The judge in the case said Tommy'd be assassinated in prison, then imprisoned him for years.
(Rightpedia is not necessarily endorsing Tommy's views, only criticizing the UK government.)
A protectorate, in international law, is an autonomous territory that is protected diplomatically or militarily against third parties by a stronger state or entity. In exchange for this, the protectorate usually accepts specified obligations, which may vary greatly, depending on the real nature of their relationship. However, it retains sufficient measure of sovereignty and remains a state under international law.
