For John, BLUF: "O it's Tommy this, an' Tommy that, an' "Tommy, go away"; But it's "Thank you, Mister Atkins," when the band begins to play."—Rudyard Kipling, 1890. Nothing to see here; just move along.
That would be "Untouchable" in the sense of the Indian Cast System.

Here is the lede plus one and a part:
Day by day, it seems, Britain is descending even further into the madness of dhimmitude.First off, Mr Tommy Robinson is an activist, who has jumped all over certain sexual crimes being committed in England. Second, the British Authorities have been on him for his supposed "Racist" views.
On October 8, Tommy Robinson was at a service station along the M1 [Motorway] in Northamptonshire when he encountered four cars full of young British soldiers in uniform. They asked to take a picture with him. He happily complied. In the picture, they're all smiling. It's a lovely photo. Apparently all of the soldiers in those four cars (reportedly twenty-eight in all) knew very well who Robinson is, and apparently all of them were delighted to pose for a snap with him. They also let him take a brief video of the encounter, in which they can be seen chanting his name. Both the picture and the video were shared online. Posting the video on Facebook, Robinson wrote: “A moment like this makes it all worth while. Today I met real British heroes.”
And then, of course, all hell broke loose.
What is missing is the understanding that while Mr Robinson may well be over the top, being over the top should not be a crime. Maybe, after Brexit, things will calm down again. However, for now the treatment of the soldiers, as described in the article, seems a little harsh, at least by US Standards.
