Gorgeous George versus Ooooh-ah King

George Galloway, writing in Socialist Worker says;

I am honoured to accept the nomination from Respect in East London to stand as the candidate in the next general election in the seat of Bethnal Green & Bow.

One hundred years ago a new force broke through in London’s East End…. Keir Hardie’s movement… east London.

(I had to abbreviate a bit – you know how Trots can go on.)

In the Evening Standard tonight the MP for Bethnal Green and Bow told that “A British Labour MEP offered me £10,000 out of his cost allowance if I’d sleep with him. I told him to go to hell and I complained to some other politicians, who had a go at him.” Ms King, who is now a parliamentary aide to Trade and Industry Secretary Patricia Hewitt, said that the man’s harassment fuelled her determination to become an MP herself.

She is about to suffer a lot of further harassment from Galloway, though probably not of the sexual kind. Her heavily Muslim seat is being targeted by the former MP for Baghdad South and she is right to be worried. Worried enough to pay special attention to courting the Muslim vote – despite supporting the war in Iraq. Her trick of sending Eid festival greeting cards to Muslim sounding names has not gone down too brilliantly with the Hindus who actually received them. Never mind, still time to send her Jewish constituents Christmas cards just to balance things up.

Incidentally, Guido would.

Quote of the Day

Jo Swinson on Chris Rennard…

“Vince — and Tim before him — have repeatedly, publicly said Rennard is not welcome anywhere near their frontbench team, even as an adviser. I remain deeply frustrated that he was not expelled from the party through its disciplinary process. It just feels wrong, and I do not want Lord Rennard to continue as a member of the party. As far as I am concerned, he is not welcome.”
