Galloway: 18,341; Labour: 8,201
It seems that the loathsome worshipper of tyranny and preening self-publicist Galloway has carpet-bagged his way back into Parliament by playing his usual, communalist and utterly reactionary game. Here’s an example of the literature he put out in Bradford West:
“God KNOWS who is a Muslim. And he KNOWS who is not. Instinctively, so do you.” Not drinking alcohol seems to be the key test here. Now take a look at the kind of material put out by Galloway’s supporters:
The Bradford councillor is Labour’s new hope in the Bradford West seat, being contested by Respect’s powerhouse George Galloway.
A bi-election has been called following the incumbent, Marsh Singh’s announcement that he is to stand down due…

Lombard Finance was one of fortynine finance companies that’ve collapsed since 2006. An estimated $8.5 billion of investor’s funds was affected. Many of the directors of companies such as Lombard, Hanover, Dominion Finance Group, Bridgecorp, etc, have appeared in Courts on various charges – usually centering around making untrue statements in their respective investment prospectuses.

The full story’s an ABC News exclusive, “Trayvon Martin Video Shows No Blood or Bruises on George Zimmerman.”
The initial police report noted that Zimmerman was bleeding from the back of the head and nose, and after medical attention it was decided that he was in good enough condition to travel in a police cruiser to the Sanford, Fla., police station for questioning.
His lawyer later insisted that Zimmerman’s nose had been broken in his scuffle with 17-year-old Martin.
In the video an officer is seen pausing to look at the back of Zimmerman’s head, but no abrasions or blood can be seen in…

Ah, yes, the sexual allure of drab totalitarian women…I love totalitarian women. I mean let’s face it,is there anything sexier than goose-stepping militant North Korean commie babes in short OD uniform skirts armed with AK-47s? Right, I didn’t think so. Check out the 60th anniversary parade.
North Korean female brigade
(OK, I know the boots are made from the hides of political prisoners, but they still look pretty hot on the girls.)
Another shot of the North Korean female soldiers (and there’s something very suggestive about the placement of those swords)
And let’s not forget these totalitarian North Korean female Navy recruits.
N. Korean totalitarian navy women up close and personal.
Authoritarian female soldiers up close (hahahaha, look at the leering male sausage eaters in the background).
Even more hot totalitarian women, this time Chinese (Chinese militia)
