George Galloway storms out of a tv interview after being challenged by Jeremy Paxman over his election night time victory.

The resurfaced 2005 interview, filmed after Mr Galloway’s victory over Labour’s Oona King, is again within the highlight following The Workers Party of Britain by-election win in Rochdale on Friday (1 March).

In the BBC clip, Mr Galloway angrily accused Paxman of “insulting” his new constituents by asking about his Labour opponent on the BBC’s election night time particular.

“They chose me. Can’t you find it within yourself even to congratulate me?” Mr Galloway fumed after Paxman requested him whether or not he felt responsible about unseating Oona King, “one of the few black women in parliament”.
