George Galloway has just crushed Labour's hapless candidate Imran Hussain in the Bradford West Bye Election with latest predictions he is set to get 50% of the vote. The message a loud strong anti war one.
LM blogged a few days ago that Imran Hussain made a fool of himself and we Muslims by bizarrely speaking the narrative of the Neo Cons and Pro Israel War hawks with his constant reference to eradicating "extremism". Galloway's eloquent retort was the biggest extremists were Bush and Blair which Hussain had no answer for. However, tellingly Galloway an old expert at politicking made the crucial point during the television debate that Imran Hussain's encouragement for Muslims to join the British Army in order to kill fellow Muslims in Afghanistan was "political suicide" and how right he was.
As soon as I saw and heard Hussain LM knew something was not right about the man. I'm not sure if he was part of the Sufi Muslim Council brigade but he was the wrong man with the wrong message at the wrong time for Muslims. Crucially while the idiots in the mosques urged a Labour vote the Muslim youth and in particular the Muslim female youth vote won 3 huge crucial Muslim wards for George. LM offers a hijab tip to the Muslims up North in an area which I will now call Bradford once again and stop for ever calling it Bradistan.
