Egg thrower: Miliband 'has not represented the poor'

The man who pelted Labour leader Ed Miliband with eggs during a walkabout in a market in south London today said he was protesting against "all the politicians' corrupt policies against homelessness."

Speaking to Channel 4 News Presenter Cathy Newman shortly after the incident, Dean Porter said:

"He is part of the problem. He has not represented the poor enough, just like any other politician, he is representing banks."

Mr Porter, who said he had not voted since 1997, joked that the only thing that would make him vote for Labour again would be if David Miliband was leader.
