Take a look…
George Galloway was bombarded with glitter at an Aberdeen University, police were called to the scene.
The former MP was giving a lecture on Tuesday evening at the university when he was targeted by a group of five protestors who covered him in glitter. They were quickly removed from the lecture hall and Galloway continued his speech.
He soon tweeted…
I know have an unknown substance in my eyes and lungs and feel a little unwell. But the struggle continues:-)

He said his pregnant wife had “leapt forward” to defend him during the attack.
Police confirmed that they were called to the university at 7:45pm. A Police Scotland spokesman said: “Inquiries are at an early stage and no further details are available at this time,”
Galloway later tweeted that he was feeling better.
Feeling better thanks to all; just needed a good shower. Thought not as much as the “Student Left” who attacked me & tried vainly to stop me

Finlay Rowden, a politics student at the university apologised to Galloway, he told The Guardian: “I could say this a million times but it still wouldn’t be enough. I really do say sorry from the bottom of my heart.”
