    Ed Miliband's attempt to relaunch his leadership descended into chaos today after the Labour leader was pelted with eggs.

    He hoped to use a walkabout in a south London market to attack the government over the rising cost of living.

    But his attempt to answer critics who claim he was failing to connect with voters backfired when six eggs rained down on his head.

    The man who threw the six eggs was 38-year-old Dean Porter, who was homeless for five years and said he had travelled to the street specifically to target Mr Miliband.

    As he threw the eggs he joked that he would only have voted for Mr Miliband's brother, David.

    Speaking to reporters after the incident, Mr Porter said: 'They don't care about the poor, they just care about the banks, they should stop giving favouritism to the banks.

    'The government do nothing, the shadow government do nothing. If you're poor you're considered a burden.'

    After the incident he was led away from the scene by market security.

    What this country needs is more inarticulate, undirected anger.

    Better eggs than bullets... hits the ego but leaves the body standing.

    But if you want to take it up a level....

    Meanwhile, in Europe...

    On February 4th, 1998, Microsoft CEO Bill Gates was in Brussels, Belgium to visit with the Belgian Prime Minister. A crack commando squad of pie "assassins" "attacked" Mr. Gates with a series of cream pies.
