The Man Who Attacked Rupert Murdoch

Who is 'Jonnie Marbles'?

The man who attacked Rupert Murdoch during Tuesday’s hearing is Jonathan May-Bowles, a self-described "writer, comedian, activist and blogger" and one of the founders of the anti-tax cut activist group UK Uncut, which has denied any involvement in the attack. May-Bowles has been charged with behavior causing harassment, alarm or distress in a public place, and will appear before the City of Westminister Magistrates Court on Friday.
