Gets Galloway’s Viva!

George Galloway, formerly (?) a leading figure in, amongst others, the Stop the War Coalition, is a star columnist on the far-right site, Westmonster.

Yesterday he wrote this patriotic piece;

Galloway: Lords push to undo Brexit as voted for by the British people is an act of high treason

This act of political arson will be seen in hindsight as having lit a fuse on a mountain of democratic gunpowder. The subsequent political explosion will make Guy Fawkes look like a mere effigy. The House of Lords, which partied long into the night at your expense last week, is fiddling while the anger of the British people slowly burns. Nursing their wrath to keep it warm…

Now his attention and enthusiasm has turned to Italy’s Five Star Movement, Movimento 5 Stelle.

Italy’s president to turn to 5-Stars to lead coalition talks amid impasse

Italy’s president is launching another round of consultations to try to overcome the impasse from inconclusive March 4 elections. Sergio Mattarella is expected to turn to the populist 5-Star Movement to head up talks, AP reports. President the 5-Star president of the lower chamber of deputies, Roberto Fico, was summoned to the Quirinale Palace on Monday. Mattarella will likely give Fico a mandate to explore the possibilities of finding an alliance that can win a parliamentary majority. Previous rounds have failed. The 5-Stars were the biggest single vote-getter in the March 4 vote, but finished behind a center-right coalition made up of the right-wing League, Silvio Berlusconi’s Forza Italia and a smaller party. That centre-right alliance won a regional election Sunday in southern Molise, boosting its standing in national talks.

“The Patriotic Alliance is a grassroots movement built on the success of the EU referendum. By holding the political establishment to account and introducing fresh ideas to the national policy debate, the Alliance aims to capitalise on the huge promise delivered by Brexit. Join us to make Britain fairer, more democratic and more prosperous.”

Political revolution!

 

George Galloway’s by-election diary exclusively on Westmonster.

Brexit day was spent in the Gorton wards of the constituency where the great majority voted Leave in the referendum. It is said usually by journalists that Manchester Gorton constituency voted at least 60-40 Remain.

As a matter of fact no-one can know that because the votes weren’t counted on a constituency basis but like so much in this story if you tell a lie often enough.

….

In fact Brexit inevitably means a reinvigorated relationship with our Commonwealth, with people who stood by our side in our darkest days when otherwise we would have stood alone. People more likely to share our language add to our culture and with whom we share so much history.

I look forward to Brexit Britain resounding to newly re-engaged Canadian Australian New Zealand Indian sub-continental and Commonwealth African voices in the years to come.

I fought the 1975 Common Market referendum under the leadership of Mr Benn Mr Foot Mr Shore and Mrs Castle. The abandonment of the Commonwealth was one of their most powerful arguments. We lost then. But we’ve won now. Let’s build a Britain to be proud of, independent of the EU and firmly rooted in the world.

‘Anti-establishment’ site is being edited by Nigel Farage’s former press officer and will mix aggregation and some original content.

Westmonster says (March the 14th)

Leave.EU and Westmonster’s Arron Banks has clarified the situation with UKIP. In a statement just released he has said:

“UKIP has somehow managed to allow my membership to lapse this year despite having given considerably more than the annual membership fee over the past 12 months.

“On reapplying I was told my membership was suspended pending my appearance at a NEC meeting.

“Apparently, my comments about the party being run like a squash club committee and Mr Carswell have not gone down well.

“I now realise I was being unfair to squash clubs all over the UK and I apologise to them.

“We will now be concentrating on our new movement.”
