UK: After defeat defeat, Galloway says ‘Racists, the vile and Zionists will be celebrating’

The Algemeiner reports:
The flamboyant leader of the British Respect Party conceded his overwhelming defeat in Bradford to a Labour Party up-and-comer on Thursday, handing off the celebration to the “racists and the Zionists.”

Donning a black fedora and speaking in a somber tone, the former MP and Respect Party mainstay George Galloway addressed a small crowd of supporters and journalists after election results in Bradford West showed Labour’s Naseem Shah led with 50% of votes to Galloway’s 21%.

“There will be others who are already celebrating,” he lamented. “The venal and the vile, the racists and the Zionists will all be celebrating. The hyena can dance on the lion’s grave, but it can never be a lion.”

Galloway, who was expelled from Labour in 2003 before becoming an MP for Respect first in 2005, is best known outside of England for his harsh anti-Israel views, sympathizing with various Middle Eastern dictators, recently declaring Bradford an “Israel-free zone,” and for his strident opposition to the war in Iraq.
