Remember George Galloway?

Remember when George Galloway gave holy hell to a US Senator at a Senate hearing a number of years ago? He’s baaaack. In the UK yesterday former MP George Galloway was elected to Parliament by a landslide. His newly created Respect Party beat out the three major party candidates running for the seat. Galloway ran on a platform of anti-austerity and immediate withdrawal of UK forces from Afghanistan. From the BBC:

Main parties ‘can’t lie straight in bed’

Update: Phoenix Woman came up with a link to a piece on the election in The Guardian by Tariq Ali. This is a good read.

George Galloway’s Respect could help Britain to break the political impasse

Thanks, PW
