Breaking News, Exclusive  to Face Book, Twitter, and all good Newshounds.

This is doing the rounds, but as one of the oldest muckers of the Dapper Gent in the Fedora, it is the bounden duty of this Blog to flag it up.

Even at this hour on a Sunday evening, when I am just about to get the dinner ready.

Anti-imperialists, from the SWP to Counterfire be reassured, there is some spunk left in the old Galloway:

How this all twigs with his mates in the Workers Party of Britain (LEADER: George Galloway : Deputy leader: Joti Brar is anybody’s guess.

Now, back to enjoying the Salmond/Surgeon clan warfare as the right of centre Scottish nationalists also tear each other apart.

Update, having finished the lamb chops, fine beans and roast parsnips.

My favourite Galloway story.

It was a small left wing meeting in a dusty hall circa 2009

Comrade Andrew Coates was introduced as “George Galloway’s worst enemy on the British left”.

A gravely voice from the back of the room came from a man with a hat that had a soft brim and indented crown.

“Not while I’m around laddie!”.


Here it is for the future biographers…

  1. It actually goes a long way past the Tories. George G is – or was – happy to run a candidate under his unique brand of Unionist label who is a Tommy Robinson loving hatemonger. See https://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/news/politics/george-galloway-new-party-racist-22564017 Of course George has already given a big hostage to fortune when in 2014 he said “please shoot me’ if I am ever seen standing under a Union Jack shoulder-to-shoulder with a Conservative”. I’m not suggesting that BTW, but what a daftie thing for the fedora wearing loun to say…….

  3. Indeed. It will be interesting to see when the final canddates list comes out whether the Islamphobic, EDL and Tommy Robinson supporting Ms Mathieson is still in there. Mind, GG has already backed her in public by implicitly bracketing her with his slate of candidates whom, he says, are ” “a broadly-based group and the stronger for it. We have socialists, liberals and conservatives in our team and most have never stood for election before”………“We are soldiers and anti-war leaders, fox hunters and hunt saboteurs, Celtic and Rangers supporters, left, right and centre.”
