George Galloway: "I Despise Sunak"!

Galloway is Causing Alarm!

By Nicholas BishopPublished 3 months ago 3 min read
New MP to Be: George Galloway.

No one would have thought in a 'month of Sundays' that George Galloway and His Workers Party of Britain would win the Rochdale By-election. Labour's Muslim MP lost the backing of the Labour Party after alleged anti-Semitic statements. So, many pundits have proposed that Mr. Galloway won because of Labour not having a candidate. A local businessman and independent David Tully, came second.

The election of Mr. Galloway as Rochadale's MP and David Tully coming 2nd has made politicians and others sit up! No one saw this coming! Will Mr. Galloway's party and other independent candidates stand in other by-elections or indeed, the general election? Certainly, those standing as independents and those within Mr. Galloway's party might hope so!

Both Rishi Sunak and Sir Keir Starmer have expressed alarm about Galloway's coming presence in Parliament. Mr. Sunak made a speech about the election of George Galloway on the steps of Downing Street. Sunak said Mr. Galloway's victory was "beyond alarming". Mr. Sunak described Mr. Galloway as a "Divisive figure" and that he supported Hezbollah. In Mr. Sunak's view, Mr. Galloway is a troublemaker.

Sir Keir Starmer also expressed His misgivings about George Galloway. Mr. Galloway was once a member of the Labour Party, however, Tony Blair, kicked George Galloway out of the party. Certainly, Mr. Galloway back in parliament will be like a ghost that has returned to haunt the Labour Party. Whatever you think of Mr. Galloway, he is a highly intelligent man. He has the gift of being a powerful speaker. No doubt, Sunak and Starmer will be fearing not only His very presence in the Commons but His withering words in that chamber.

No doubt, another left-winger, Jeremy Corbyn former Labour leader will be looking forward to linking up with George Galloway. Sir Keir has booted Corbyn out of the Labour Party for alleged or real anti-Semitism. Corbyn, right now is an independent MP, however, will He join Galloway's Workers Party of Britain?

Richard Tice of Reform who stood a candidate in the Rochdale by-election said 'The Worker's Party of Britain' intimidated His candidate. The 'Board of Deputies of British Jews' described Mr. Galloway's victory as a "Dark day".

George Galloway spoke to Sam Coates of Sky News. Sam Coates wanted to get a reaction from Mr. Galloway about the Prime Minister's remarks about him. Mr. Galloway told Mr. Coates not to put questions to him about Rishi Sunak. As if Sunak was Moses "Coming down from the mount with two stone tablets". Mr. Galloway told Mr. Coates, "Sunak might intimidate you, but he doesn't intimidate me". Directly referencing the song by Shania Twain, Mr. Galloway said "Sunak don't impress me much"!

George Galloway has a political talk show on 'YouTube' called MOATS or 'Mother Of All Talk Shows'. Mr. Galloway has different guests, usually via video link espousing pro-Palestinian views. Largely, describing Israel as a fascist and apartheid state. Certainly, with the Israeli action in Gaza after October 7, Mr. Galloway has been vociferous in His critique of Israel. However, as a side note, George Galloway does have guests that are not political. George Galloway spoke to a northern UFO buff about the reality of life elsewhere. Whether Mr. Galloway will now have time to do His talk show as well as being an MP, remains to be seen.

Mr. Galloway does have Allies in the House of Commons, however. One already mentioned, will be Jeremy Corbyn. Even Tory, David Davies seems to have a good relationship with Mr. Galloway. Not surprising really as all three men are mavericks.

The situation in Gaza is what mainly got George Galloway elected. Rochdale has a large Muslim population and no doubt, they helped him be elected. Mr. Galloway also said he would restore an Accident and Emergency facility to Rochdale. He would also look into the Rochdale scandal of Muslim men abusing local girls (Ironic really, when it was mainly Muslims who voted for Mr. Galloway). No doubt, many non-Muslims also voted for Galloway because of his promises towards Rochdale.

At the end of the day if you are an opponent of Mr. Galloway his election will be like when Hitler and His Nazis won power. While if you are a supporter you will feel he will get things done and be a refreshing change to the boring politics of today.
