This is what's on her Wiki entry. Yes, it's Wiki but there's plenty of citations.
2005 general electionhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oona_King
Bethnal Green and Bow with its almost 45,000 Muslims was Galloway's best chance to defeat Labour in what became a "bitter single issue campaign." King described the contest as "one of the dirtiest ..we have ever seen in British politics" and complained of "quite disturbing" anti-semitic racial abuse. She was the putative target of vegetable and egg throwers during a memorial service commemorating the second world war bombing of a block of flats with predominantly Jewish victims. King claimed it was deliberate part of Respect's campaign, but Galloway's campaigners denied racial abuse accusing the Government of a "war on Muslims". Galloway criticised Labour for a postal vote strategy that was "close to illegal if not illegal" and Tower Hamlets council electoral office for publishing an electoral roll "so shot through with errors and anomalies... as to be almost meaningless."
Both candidates were given police protection, King after her tyres were slashed and Galloway after a death threat.
King lost the seat by 823 votes, a 26.2% swing from King to Galloway. King said that whilst the war had been a major issue, false claims in the Bangladeshi press that she wanted to get rid of halal meat had played a part. In 2010, King revealed that she was offered a ministerial job in 2000, if she spoke publicly against Ken Livingstone however she refused feeling it was too harsh on him despite her unreserved loyalty to the government. She was then told her ministerial career would begin in five years, at that time she had lost her seat which meant she was unable to join the government.
