On Friday, the 60 year old was having his picture taken with other people when he was attacked. He suffered a broken jaw.
His spokesman said "George was posing for pictures with people and this guy just attacked him, leapt on him and started punching him. It appears to be connected with his comments about Israel because the guy was shouting about the Holocaust. George is badly bruised but OK. He has bruising to his head and face and is in pretty bad shape."
A Metropolitan police spokesman said on Friday night: "Police were called at approximately 19.40 hours this evening to Golborne Road, W10, after a man was assaulted in the street. Officers attended. The suspect was found a short time later and stopped. He was arrested on suspicion of ABH and taken to the south London police station where he remains."
His Party twitted the picture above saying: George Galloway MP on his way to hospital last night after being assaulted in a West London street. It is thought that the attack is connected to Mr Galloway's support for the Palestinian cause. The attacker was captured near the scene and is being held in a South London police station. The Respect Party thanks all well-wishers
George Galloway is a pretty unusual political animal as the well known video below shows in his testimony to the American Senate.
