Murdoch Assailant Warned Thousands Before Attack

7/19/2011 9:57 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The man who attempted to pie Rupert Murdoch in Parliament warned thousands of people before his attack -- posting a cryptic message to his Twitter account just minutes before it went down.

While sitting inside Parliament, Jonathan May-Bowles -- aka Jonnie Marbles -- wrote, "It is a far better thing that I do now than I have ever done before #splat." (So, in addition to pie terrorism, he's a Dickens fan)



And that was just the latest message ... before the final send-off, May-Bowles -- whose Twitter account has nearly 10,000 followers -- repeatedly mocked Murdoch from inside Parliament, writing, "Rupert Murdoch appears to be going senile #hackgate."

He continued, "I'm actually in this committee and can confirm: Murdoch is Mr. Burns."

May-Bowles -- who posted the following politically-charged video to his YouTube account last year -- is currently being detained by British police.

What kind of security lets a grubby looking guy with a pie pan and shaving cream into a room full of members of Parliament?

I see that professional protestor, Jonathan May-Bowles, gained entrance to a select committee and was allowed to attack Rupert Murdoch by the police and security. This publicity-seeking half-wit from a wealthy background in Windsor has never done a day’s work in his life but is a member of the Labour Party and London’s “rent-a-mob”. He attempted to strike the frail, 80-year-old on the head with a plate of “shaving foam pie” but was belted by Murdoch’s much younger wife so that most of it went over him. The police moved in the protect May-Bowles from the now furious Wendi Deng, took him into custody for his own protection and were last seen gently cleaning him up. Given the obtuse nature of the UK's prosecution service, I wonder if Mrs. Murdoch will now be charged with assault and battery of this 26 year old unemployable.

He only had 1,200 followers at the time of the incident - I watched his number of followers grow quickly for the obvious reasons. Little bit slow on his story, eh?

Maybe it would of been a far far faaar better thing if he hit him in the face with somthing better, like a bullet.

Hope the old bastard dies and his pathetic decrepid body is videotaped as they cut him open.
