...how any constituency in Britain could elect that old rogue Galloway.
He took 56 percent of the vote on a remarkably high turnout for a bye-election. An ethnic vote cannot be the whole story. He was running against a British-Asian Labour candidate. Somebody, please explain it to me.
Someone might also need to explain it to Mr. Miliband. He must be in state of shock this morning. How could Labour lose such a rock solid seat?
Yesterday, the hapless Labour leader issued a press release about the petrol non-crisis, claiming that Mr. Cameron was 'presiding over a shambles" and urged him "get a grip and calm the situation."
Shambles; now that is a good word. It certainly describes the Labour party right now. Miliband, I sense, does not have the necessary skills to calm the situation within his own party.
A leadership election in the Autumn?
