Many politicians have been described by their constituents as bad eggs - most aren't pelted with bad eggs for that fact. But George Galloway, one of the more infamously left-wing former members of the United Kingdom's Parliament, now newly reelected as part of the "Respect" party, endured just such a fate during a victory parade. One of Galloway's detractors, Thomas Johnson of West Yorkshire, took an entire box of eggs and started pelting Galloway's parade before getting swarmed by a crowd of Galloway's Arab supporters. Watch below:
The Huffington Post has more on the incident:
Thomas Johnson, 26, of Bradford, West Yorkshire, called Galloway a "parasite" as he threw the eggs towards him.
"Why would any city want a politician that got kicked out of two constituencies? Who hasn't got the common sense not to act like a submissive cat on television?" Johnson said.[...]
"Was he protesting? Against me? The man who got chosen by 56% of the people yesterday?" he said.
"I've only just been elected. Unless he was protesting against the democratic process of the election."
Galloway, despite his Left-wing credentials, is not despised exclusively by UK conservatives. The late Christopher Hitchens debated Galloway at Baruch College, and savaged him for being corrupt and too willing to cozy up to Middle Eastern "theocrats." Watch the full debate between the two below:
