Breaking News, Ed Miliband leader of the Labour Party has been egged. Can this ever an acceptable form of protest? We look at the motivation behind the egging.
The man who threw the egg at Ed was Dean Porter who described his action as an “opportunistic moment” as he was moved away by security.
“They should stop giving favouritism to the banks. They do nothing. The Government do nothing. The shadow government do nothing,”
“I don’t believe him at all. If you are poor, you are considered a burden. All they care about is the banks.”
Earlier Mr Porter posted on twitter saying “Watch the news tonight. I suspect I might be on it.”
And: “I tried to egg Ed Milliband as he came down to East Street in southwark, watching the news to see if its on.”
Later writing: “@David_Cameron hi pleb, can you come to East Street Market so I can egg you like I’ve egged your chum @Ed_Miliband lol.”
