Newly-elected MP George Galloway is expected to take his seat in the House of Commons on Monday, having shocked the political establishment last month by robbing labour of one of its safest seats.
Galloway, who won the Bradford West by-election for the Respect party last month, compared himself to "Robin Hood" and said he would be among the most scrutinised MPs in the Commons.
In an interview with The Big Issue street newspaper, he said: "If I was a bigamist, I'd be under arrest. If I was a tax dodger, I'd be under arrest.
"I'm the most inquired-into individual in British politics. By a country mile. If I did things wrong, be sure I'd be already in big trouble."
"We have a prevailing orthodoxy: there's a few inches of political life in which it's acceptable to have a different view but if you challenge the fundamentals of policy, you're an outlaw. You're Robin Hood."
George Galloway scored a dramatic win in the Bradford West by-election, securing a 10,000-plus majority in what he called a "massive rejection" of mainstream parties.
Respect swept from fifth place at the 2010 general election to a commanding victory for the ex-Labour anti-war campaigner against his former party on a swing of 36.59%.
Mr Galloway won 18,341 votes to the 8,201 for Labour candidate Imran Hussain.
He described it as "the most sensational result in British by-election history bar none".
Galloway will once again find himself on the opposition benches in the Commons - but this time not facing a Labour government but the coalition. He becomes the third MP to be alone among their party in having a parliamentary constituency - the others are Green leader Caroline Lucas and Alliance MP from Northern Ireland Naomi Long.
Mr Galloway, 57, originally from Dundee, earned the nickname "Gorgeous George" after admitting to having sex with women in Greece, while he was in Mykonos for a conference in 1987.
He achieved notoriety for his conduct in the Celebrity Big Brother house in 2006, when he pretended to purr like a cat and lick cream from actress Rula Lenska's hands on the show.
He now lives with his fourth wife, 27-year-old Dutch/Indonesian anthropologist Putri Pertiwi.
When asked to explain the "effect" he has on women, Mr Galloway said: "I'm the artist formerly known as Gorgeous George. I prefer the company of women. Because I don't drink, I don't swear, I'm not crude, sometimes male company turns me off. And from an early age I was the person who drove everybody home and I always saved the prettiest girl to drop off last."
Mr Galloway also told The Big Issue "you can have a whale of a time" without drink and drugs.
He said: "Music, making love, children, it's all you need, really. I love children very much and hope to have more. Your own children and grandchildren literally piling on top of you, on the sofa, is as good as it gets. It's far more fun than getting tanked down the old Bull 'n' Bush."
