Litigious George

George Galloway has begun legal proceedings to have the result of the Bradford West byelection set aside.

Well naturally. He lost, so naturally he’s demanding that his loss be set aside. Never let it be said that he takes such an insult lying down.

Galloway won the Bradford West seat for his Respect party in a byelection in 2012, but he was defeated on Thursday by Labour’s Naz Shah, who secured a majority of more than 11,000 following a bitter campaign.

On Sunday night, Galloway said on Twitter: “We’ve begun legal proceedings seeking to have result of the Bfd West election set aside. I cannot therefor discuss my own election for now.” His spokesman said the legal action was at an early stage but was a complaint under section 106 of the Representation of the People Act 1983. This relates to candidates making false statements during campaigns.

Oh yes? Galloway’s the one who said Naz Shah’s marriage wasn’t forced because her mother attended the wedding. What about that for a false statement?

A Labour spokesman said: “This is pathetic and without any foundation. George Galloway should accept he was booted out by the people of Bradford West. They saw through his divisive politics and made a positive choice, by a majority of well over 11,000, to elect a brilliant new MP, Naz Shah.”

The guy is a skunk.

    Most hilarious was his comment that ” there will be others who are already celebrating: the venal, the vile, the racists and the Zionists will all be celebrating”.

    Sure – the racists and the Zionists will be celebrating the election of a Muslim woman of Pakistani origin. Er… hang on.

    (Lawls at ‘opinion’…)

    Fine. But I still feel this might come off as unnecessarily pejorative…

    To skunks.

    Ah, Galloway. He’s like a human reductio ad absurdum for the whole ‘let’s only count dictatorial theocrats as real Muslims’ (and thus label as racists all who oppose them) argument. Clearly, since Shah herself isn’t with them (and, worse, I suspect, stood against _him_), she’s a tool of the CIA or somethin’.

    George Galloway, as well as being an anti Semitic rape denialist (yes George, I said it again) is a complete pussy.

    No really ! bear with me on this one (and am I the first to post this?)

    prepare to be really creeped out, like reeeeealy creeped.

    and just like the CH is racist people, I will not provide context.
