Galloway : Oath Oaf

A reader, Gary, writes to make an interesting observation about the member for Baghdad Central & Bethnal Green.

Galloway has I think left London to fly to Washington for his sparring match with the US Senate sub-committee which has accused him over the oil scandal.

Problem for him is, that he has not sworn the oath in the House of Commons. He will not be back in London until after the Queen’s Speech, which is the deadline when all MPs have to have affirmed or taken the oath.

Unless the Speaker lets him off, if he sets foot on the floor of the House when he gets back, he will be fined £500, and his Bethnal Green and Bow seat would be automatically vacated.

Quote of the Day

Councillor John Thomas, Keith Vaz’s Leicester East Constituency Labour Party Chairman says…

“This is great disappointment to me, realising that I have spent over 30 years of my life working for a party that I now know that I have nothing in common with. This is not the party I joined, the party for decent working people. I can no longer follow the clown that leads the Labour Party, he is heavily influenced by the Trotskyite Len McCluskey and is now as the Hoki Coki leader, in out, and shake it all about he has turned this great party into a laughing stock.”
