The execrable George Galloway lost his seat in parliament last night, and had this to say in his concession speech:
“I don’t begrudge the Labour members here their moment of celebration of course. But there will be others who are already celebrating: the venal, the vile, the racists and the Zionists will all be celebrating. The hyena can bounce on the lion’s grave but it can never be a lion and in any case, I’m not in my grave. As a matter of fact I’m going off now to plan the next campaign.”
Racists? Zionists? Galloway – an old white man – lost to Naz Shah, a Muslim woman of Pakistani origin. Why would the “racists” and “Zionists” be pleased by that? Perhaps he’s suffering from Tourette’s.
