As Respect MP George Galloway recovers from the physical wounds of the attack yesterday (29 August), Twitter trolls are bombarding the Bradford West MP with abusive comments, forcing Galloway to involve the Met Police.

Galloway was posing for pictures on Golborne Road in Notting Hill on Friday (29 August), when a man attacked him with a flurry of punches, making references to the Holocaust and Gaza, the MP's spokesman's has confirmed.

Thirty-nine year-old, Neil Masterson, from Camden Hill, North London, was charged today (30 August) in connection.

Masterson will appear before the Hammersmith Magistrates' Court on Monday (1 September), said the Metropolitan Police, charged with, "assault by beating which is religiously aggravated on a male in his 60s and also common assault on a male in his 40s".

Galloway was discharged from the St. Mary's hospital in Paddington this morning (30 August).

It is still uncertain whether or not the attacker had any Israeli heritage links.

Galloway has been vocal in expressing his support for a Palestinian state in the Gaza Israel conflict, and has often suffered criticism from pro-Israelis for his brash anti-Israel comments.

He continues to gain supporters who merit his courage for holding onto his opinions.
