George Galloway assault: Britain First Facebook ‘friend’ charged

George Galloway MP shortly after the attack in Notting Hill on Friday night

Controversial MP and anti-Zionist campaigner George Galloway was attacked in the street near Notting Hill’s Portobello Road market on Friday night.  Galloway was taken to hospital suffering from suspected broken ribs and a broken jaw.

His assailant was reported to have been shouting about the “Holocaust” shortly before the attack.

According to the BBC, police have arrested 39-year-old Neil Masterson and charged him with “religiously aggravated assault”.  What the BBC has not reported is that Masterson appears to be a fanatical Zionist (and as it happens a Manchester City fan).

His Facebook “friends” include a host of Jewish and Christian Zionist individuals and groups, as well as Britain First, the militant anti-Islamic group run by former BNP official Paul Golding, until recently under the auspices of Nick Griffin’s former right hand man Jim Dowson.

On August 12th, two weeks before the assault, Masterson posted on a Facebook page ‘United with Israel’:
“No other military in the world comes close to the IDF, in terms of operational, legislative brakes on its command structure… Israel bows to no one in maintaing the highest standards of human rights.”

We understand that Mr Masterson is a Roman Catholic and was originally from the Preston area, but is now living in North London.
