How women won it for George Galloway

There is a very inspiring article in today’s edition of the Guardian about how women in Bradford helped George Galloway to deliver a huge shock to our complacent and corrupt mainstream political parties in last week’s by-election. You can read it in full here.

    They will be queuing up to marry him….!

  2. Brendan says:

    ps…I wonder if the Muslim women who voted for him had known he’d just abandoned his 3rd wife (who claims they are not divorced by the way) with a five month old baby to take up with a 4th wife younger than his eldest daughter whether he would have done quite so well…?

    Well, then those women are not to be congratulated. A man who readily cohorts with tyrants in country after country and is happy to make an enormous fool of himself on Big Brother is a truly horrid addition to the House of Commons.

  4. Those women clearly believed that they had been taken for granted for years by the Labour Party machinery in Bradford West and decided to punish the Labour Party for their complacency. They worked hard and helped deliver a huge shock to Labour. The very next day senior big-wigs in Labour were promising to urgently look at the concerns in Bradford West and to begin listening again. The women did brilliantly so perhaps you can stop being a twat about it.

  5. Asim says:

    I am not “being a twat about it.” The “twat” here is George Galloway. It’s a shame they didn’t have a better candidate to get behind to deliver that blow to Labour.

    • So first you said the women should not be congratulated. When I pointed out that they had done marvellously well – and clearly for many of them it was the first time they had been involved in politics, you moved on to suggest that they should have voted for a ‘better candidate’. What a patroning remark. The women of Bradford did the best they could given the circumstances they were in.

    Agree with Inayat here, congrats to GG and good luck to the people on Brad West in having him. Not sure what his private life has got to do with it though. Lets hope people in Burnley, Dewsbury, Barking and other trad Labour areas kick labour out and vote for someone who truly represents them.

  7. Brendan says:

    ‘Private life’ tells you quite a lot about someone and has everything to do with a man who promotes himself as a person of character and integrity. The people of Bradford must hold him to account re: his time management (ask voters in Tower Hamets about this) George will face the choice of spending time in Manningham with his beloved new constituents or with 27 year old Putri in Amsterdam…ummnh could be a tough call for George!
