Blair and the English Election
Tony Blair has won his third straight majority, albeit a reduced one.
The tenor of the campaign and the resulting Parliament may well be indicated by the election of George Galloway. Galloway was famously on Saddam Hussein's payroll and has been elected in a largely Muslim riding. A rather subtle man Galloway...
He [Blair]lost at least one loyal MP, Labour's Oona King, solely to Iraq. She was beaten by George Galloway, a radical expelled from the Labour party for attacking Blair over the war, in an east London seat with a large Muslim population.blair has indicated that this third term will be his last and, with weasels like Galloway having been elected, I can't say I blame him.
"All the people you killed, all the lies you told, have come back to haunt you," Galloway told Blair in his victory speech.
"The best thing the Labour party could do is sack you."
