Why Galloway Jumped Ship?

with one comment

Whatever you think of George Galloway he has a nose for trouble and it seems clear that he saw the implosion of Respect coming.

Apparently, there was a piece on BBC London local news, where the main backer of the Respect Party, Azmal Hussein, has decided to pull the plug.

I don’t know Mr. Hussein, but it seems he was the Respect version of Michael Ashcroft, the party funder.

Mr. Hussein, according to the International Socialism journal, is a millionaire restaurateur and property developer.

I am not familiar with Mr. Hussein but I assume he thought he was throwing good money after bad then decided to stop wasting his time and money. It seems that the writing was on the wall in 2007, or so the Weekly Worker implies.

No doubt the Gorgeous One saw it coming and made arrangements accordingly. I pity Hollywood.

Still, it is a shame that these small parties are equally dependent on the whim of multimillionaires. Not exactly a new type of politics is it?
