George Galloway: Who is Rochdale’s new MP?
  • last month
George Galloway returns to the Commons after winning the Rochdale by-election – his seventh election victory in a fourth different constituency with a third different party. His former party, Labour, had been expected to win the by-election but its campaign was thrown into disarray by a leaked recording of Azhar Ali's inflammatory remarks about Israel. Mr Galloway stood on a fiercely anti-Labour and pro-Gaza ceasefire stance, targeting the sizeable Asian and Muslim communities in Rochdale. Report by Jonesia.
