Last night, dictator apologist and Islamist agent George Galloway was voted back in the house of parliament, our cradle of democracy, after devastatingly humiliating Labour in Bradford West (Respect 18,341 / Labour 8,201).
The Labour Party leadership, especially Ed Miliband and Tom Watson, have questions to answer why, although repeatedly warned, they took victory for granted. Blaming Galloway’s success on Tony Blair and the Iraq war, as some absurdly try to do, misses the point. Iraq is at best a symptom; not a cause. Labour won Bradford West twice after the invasion of Iraq.
In the end, Galloway’s appeal derives from his tidal wave of anti-US/Israel propaganda. He is a man who wins elections by resorting to the politics of sectarianism and by exploiting people’s fears and prejudices, creating an unhealthy, to say the least, climate of hatred.
Yesterday, was a sad day for all freedom-loving people. The winners sit in Gaza City, Teheran, Caracas and Damascus.
Galloway is the country’s cancer, not Labour’s. We shall all be working together curing it.
