Galloway apparently was not satisfied with his stinging defeat in recent elections for parliament.
Pro-Hamas provocateur George Galloway officially announced Sunday night he is running for mayor London in next year’s election.
Galloway once was the sole Member of Parliament for his Respect party until he lost his seat in last month’s elections, but he is not giving up his political ambitions. He pledged last night to build London into “a city that benefits everyone, not just those dripping in gold.”
London has for too long been run in the interests of the 1% working in the city’s glittering towers, whilst the vast majority of Londoners feel that their voices are not heard.
I’m running because I want to represent every piece of the mosaic of this city which I have called home for 35 years.
That comes from the man who declared the district of Bradford “Israel-free,” has backed off making cleansing London of Israelis.
He said to weeks ago that he would like to London “Israel-free” but that it is not practical.
Displaying delusions of grandeur and posing as a diplomat, Galloway said:
I think Palestine has more supporters in London than anywhere else in the country. But the mayor is not the pope and the mayor is not the president and is not the prime minister or the foreign secretary.
Galloway hates Israel and loves Hamas. He also once was fond of praising Saddam Hussein and said he had “courage,” a description he claims was intended for the Iraqi people, and he fiercely opposed the invasion of Iraq in 2003.
He did not mention his pro-Arab agenda at the launch of his campaign and instead focused on the “housing crisis.” and “white-collar crime.
It is not clear whether he really thinks he will win in London, and perhaps is counting on its growing Muslim population to vote him into office.
After his loss as Member of Parliament, and after his expected loss in the race for mayor, maybe Galloway will run for prime minister.
