George Galloway - an opportunity lost?
All those opposed to the Iraq war will have celebrated the defeat of the pro-war Oona King and the victory of George Galloway.

Tony Banks (usually called "Blood Banks" for his support of war and torture) made a fool of himself insisting to the BBC that Galloway only won because he was a white Tony Banks!

Galloway's immediate response was broadcast around the world. "Mr Blair. This is for Iraq: all the people you killed, all the lies you told, have come back to haunt you. The best thing the Labour Party could do is sack you tomorrow morning,"

What a golden opportunity George Galloway had to call for the unions to break from New Labour and fight for a new workers' party. Instead his remarks look like an appeal for Labour to ditch Blair - and replace him with Brown?

Respect has the opportunity to participate in the creation of a new workers' party not to act as constructive critics of New Labour advising them about their leadership.
