MP George Galloway has been barred from entering Egypt by security officials.
He had travelled to Egypt to give evidence at a "mock trial" of Tony Blair and US President George Bush.
A spokesman for Respect said Mr Galloway has been a critic of Mubarak "and of other pro-western governments in the Middle East".
Mr Galloway has recently sparked controversy in the UK by becoming a contestant on Channel 4's reality show Big Brother.
The Respect MP, who was not paid his Commons salary while on TV, has been accused of letting down constituents - and was ridiculed for impersonating a cat.
Mr. Galloway, please, we have enough lunatics here. We don't need another one imported from Scotland. Please return home and impersonate a champanzee this time. It might help your falling ratings.
