George Galloway has said he wants to oust Labour's deputy leader from Parliament, as he began work as an MP.

The Workers Party of Britain leader said his party could overturn Angela Rayner's majority in her Ashton-under-Lyne constituency at the next election.

He was sworn in as an MP, following his by-election win last week.

Speaking to reporters afterwards, he listed more areas with large Muslim populations and vowed to "win or make sure that Keir Starmer doesn't win".

He named the Labour deputy leader's seat as a target, saying: "There's at least 15,000 supporters of my point of view in her constituency."


She only had a 4.2K majority last electionLaugh

Report Jack Bauer "24" March 4, 2024 8:56 PM GMT
Former Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn initiated legal action against GB News host Nigel Farage, claiming the former Brexit Party leader made a “highly defamatory statement” about him.

The statement in question was reportedly made during a segment on GB News last Wednesday as the host responded to comments made by current Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer. That day Starmer said that Prime Minister Rishi Sunak’s government was “dancing to the tune” of Farage, who often positions himself to the Conservative Party’s right.

During the segment, however, Farage allegedly accused Corbyn of subscribing to the “madcap conspiracy theory that the Jews run the world.”

On Monday Corbyn, who now sits as an independent MP, announced the move on X: “I have asked my lawyers to take the first steps in commencing legal proceedings against Nigel Farage, following a highly defamatory statement about me.”

“We are a movement for peace — and we cannot stand by and let these disgusting and malicious lies go unchallenged,” he added.

On news of Crobyn’s announcement to sue, Farage replied with a post of a Facebook screenshot that appears to show a comment made five years ago by a user named “Jeremy Corbyn.”

Just as startling was David Tully, an independent whose occupation is listed as 'paint sprayer' on companies house and self confessed as to holding "no political views" has managed to poll more votes than Labour and Tories combined.

Anyone bar Labour or Tory then?

If Galloway can get Mr Tully to form an alliance with him the 'big two' can kiss goodbye to the general election perhaps.

Tully fought on local issues that have been badly neglected and George quickly hitched a ride on those issues to boot.

P.S. imho this was the moment starmer showed how inappropriate person he is to be a leader, or a UK PM.
He could have seized the day simply by ordering all of his MP's to follow Blackfords lead, repeating the truth and be expelled from Parliament. The global sized fall out of the entire opposition being ejected from parliament because the PM lied would have ended his premiership in 48 hours.

blackford had the last laugh, he got to repeat his words in parliament without any intervention from the speaker circa 18 months later.
