Attack Update

Last night I posted the content of an emailed release from the Labour Party in Bethnal Green reporting on the attack on pensioner Les Dobrovolski.

This morning I understand that George Galloway held a press conference where he claimed that the report is untrue. The Respect/SWP blogger Lenin has a post up which seems to contain the line being taken by Galloway’s people.

I’ll update this post if there is a statement from Respect or Oona King’s campaign on this issue.

Update: Here is a report from The Times.

More: Here is Respect’s statement on their website. It was already in our comments below an hour ago.
