Respect’s George Galloway – Victory speech in Bradford West

The people of Bradford West have spoken emphatically, gone is 38 years of the Labour mafia, Respect and George Galloway win by over 10,000 votes and an unheard of 37% swing of the vote.

For my brother Abu-Bakr.

Your hard work and dedication has been rewarded….I wish you were here to see it.

The politically apathetic Muslims should realise that what has happened in Bradford West is that the people woke up and realised that their votes had been taken for granted and the politicians wouldn’t work hard for them anymore.

Muslims have to be floating voters, do not be unquestioningly loyal to one party, make them work hard for your vote, and if this has whetted your political appetite, join your local parties, select your own candidate & make that change!

UPDATE

The government owned mouthpiece (BBC) and Murdochs empire (Sky et al) are pushing the line that “it woz the muzlims that won it” very disingenuous and disappointing to play the race card.

Perhaps it’s wise to read the blog of Chris Howson, Priest for the City of Bradford and why he (and presumably his congregation) voted for Respect & George Galloway:
