George Galloway Injured At Demonstration

0401_galloway.jpg Yet another victim of terrorism and its discontents: on his way to the rally outside the Israeli embassy this past weekend, local celebrity and professional rouser of rabbles, George Galloway MP, sustained various injuries when a group he was with met riot police in the Hyde Park underpass. Galloway wasted no time in blaming the officers, claiming that they "attacked [him] repeatedly", though police sources say he was escorted through the tunnel for his own safety. It's not the first time this year that the member for Bethnal Green & Bow has been injured while politicking about the city - you'd think some folk had it in for him, an understandable notion considering his support for the kind of people who brandish signs such as this one. Still, silver lining for Galloway - he'll be able to catch every minute of this year's CBB while he recuperates. (Image / JudyGr)
