The sublime irony of the recent Galloway's adventure will escape only the main actor - George Galloway. Anti-war campaigner Mr Galloway was forced to take refuge from Islamic militants who denounced him as a "false prophet".
Mr Galloway was electioneering on the Osier council estate in Bethnal Green last night when a gang of 30 Muslim fundamentalists, who claim voting is un-Islamic, surrounded him and his supporters.Hmm... Galloway on gallows set up by Hizb-ut-Tahrir? That act bears watching. Almost (but not quite) better than this:
The men said they were angry at Mr Galloway's attempt to woo Muslim voters. They said they were "setting up the gallows" for him and warned any Muslim who voted for his anti-war Respect party that they faced a "sentence of death".
After a fight broke out between the two groups, police were called and Mr Galloway was forced to hide in his car in an alley until the violence calmed down. Two men were later arrested.
