George Galloway’s remarkable win in the Bradford West by-election last night means the return of a formidable and charismatic voice in parliament that can be relied upon to staunchly oppose any Israeli-led war against Iran. Well done to the people of Bradford West for punishing the Westminster political classes for their corruption and complacency.
There were some who were gleefully hoping and predicting that Galloway would lose, including a twit called Hasan Afzal on McCarthy’s Place who joked about “George Galloway’s soon to be failed bid to take Bradford West.”
Contrast the return of Galloway with this latest story in today’s Guardian about Adam Werritty – the former adviser to the Tory Minister, Liam Fox. You can read more about Werritty and his meetings with Israeli officials here. It is truly regrettable how big money continues to corrupt Westminster politics.
