Galloway takes seat from Labour

May 5th, 2005 | by Andrew Ó Baoill |

George Galloway has won in Bethnal Green for Respect-Unity Coalition running (unsurprisingly) on an anti-war platform. It was predicted earlier by the BBC, but it took a while for the result to come out. Galloway is somewhat controversial as a figure, but the message from the electorate is – well, clear may not be the proper term as he won by only 2%, but in elections there are two states, winning and losing.
