British Politician Beats Down Hecklers Who Spat In His Face

Posted by on May 10th, 2010 4 Comments »

A question from Joe the Plumber is probably the most amusingly difficult thing an American politician needs to address while on the campaign trail. British politics works a bit differently.

Bob Bailey, a British parliamentary candidate, got into a fight with a group of hecklers while campaigning for his party in the town of Barking. A video of the fight captured by the BBC shows Bailey shouting at the group of men, who confront him and escalate the argument.

Bailey, a former royal marine, tells the group to ‘move on’, but instead of moving on, an individual in the group spits in Bailey’s face, propelling the argument into an all-out fight. Bailey instantly lunges at the spitter, punching and kicking him to the ground, and continues to beat him while he is down.

There’s a very important lesson to learn from all this: Don’t fuck with marines. Or British politicians. Especially a combination of the two. Specifically, don’t fuck with Bob Bailey.

I think you’re missing the point of this whole altercation. The BNP are a racist organisation and the politician was deliberately racially abusing the asian boys. This is no victory. This is shameful blatant racism. I am white but if i was there I would have sided with the asian boys. He deserved more than spit.

He’s saying to them ‘how many of you are robbers?’ at the start. He’s calling them thieves implying because they are asian that they are thieves.

I have to agree with Patrick O, as someone who has marched with ‘Unite’ against the ‘EDL’ and the ‘BNP’ would have sided with the asian lads as well. Thankfully the BNP is looked on as a bit of a joke by the british public, but unfortunately they are being serious.
