George Galloway wins Bradford West by election!Page 1 of 3    (1, 2, 3)
George Galloway has sensationally won the Bradford West by election with a majority of over 10,000!

This must be one of the biggest ever by election upsets and a massive embarrassment for Labour.

Any thoughts?

the muslim vote.

Galloway didn't just win the 'muslim' vote, he won the rest too.
IMO this was because of his ant-war stance.
The majority of people now feel that the wars in both Afghanistan, and Iraq, were unnecessary, illegal, and a senseless waste of life. (Like most wars) Not to mention the costs in both lives and financially.
He speaks to people, not categories.
That's why he won IMO.

George Galloway is too extreme left in my opinion. He makes Ken Livingstone look like Margaret Thatcher by comparison.

British citizens or not, they are a minority, any minority, shouldn't have the deciding say in UK politics.

So the Liberals shouldn't have formed a coalition then..?
The Tories ARE also a "minority"

What next? A Polish PM?

Why not..?
We almost had a Romanian, and he was Tory:



Michael Howard, Baron Howard of Lympne, CH, PC, QC, (born Michael Hecht, 7 July 1941) is a British politician, who served as the Leader of the Conservative Party and Leader of the Opposition from November 2003 to December 2005. He had previously held cabinet positions in the governments of Margaret Thatcher and John Major, including Secretary of State for Employment (1990-92), Secretary of State for the Environment (1992-93) and Home Secretary (1993-97).//
Howard was born in Gorseinon, in the north west of Swansea, Wales. He is the son of Bernard Hecht, a Romanian-born shopkeeper of Jewish descent who came to Britain in 1939.[1] His mother, Hilda Kershion, was Welsh-born. When Howard was six, the family name Hecht was anglicized to Howard.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Howard
Howard is s also "Jewish"...



There's another reason Galloway got in - Milliband is Jewish, so he will be losing Labour a lot of the muslim vote

That's just drivel!

I don't think you understand anything about how politics 'works'.
All minorities "end up being the deciding factor in picking our country's MP's".
If you don't like that, you could always emigrate.

There are currently about 5.5 million Brit's permanently residing in other countries, about a million in Spain alone, despite their financial problems being far worse than ours. Most of them are probably complaining about "immigrants" here too, ironically.

Galloway won, because he doesn't listen to the hysterical, tribal, "Little Englander" Daily Mail view. He thinks "outside the box".
You should try it, sometime....

You really are a loathsome little man. That's not an insult that's a fact.

But more than anything is your pig ignorant stupidity. Every British Citizen (even the ones who weren't born here but are now legal citizens - and that covers a whole wide spectrum of peoples ) have a right to vote.

Just goes to show what you know about Scottish politics - the Scottish National Party are neither left wing nor right wing.

I think you will find that pro Scottish is very different from anti-English.


i have no further wish to participate in any exchange with you as you clearly display bigoted, offensive and ignorant views. keep reading the Daily Mail eh?


Excellent post. Well said Terry.

GEORGE Galloway caused uproar ­yesterday by getting the name of the city that elected him wrong.

The new MP for Bradford West boasted on Twitter about his landslide by-election ­triumph in BLACKBURN.

It will be interesting to find out where he intends holding his constituency surgery!


VVVVV Respect? Was that a pun!
