Oh, my aching sides, Galloway is going to vote Tory in the upcoming Scottish elections (and for himself on the list). Oh, my aching sides. At least he’s an honest grandstanding, egotistical, manipulative opportunist.February 28, 2021 at 8:26 pm #214529ALBKeymaster

A bit like Alex Salmond then who will get more people than him to vote Tory !
Maybe the Tories are right that an independent Scotland would be a corrupt banana republic?February 28, 2021 at 10:54 pm #214540
An application for the party he founded to be called “All for Unity” (A4U)was rejected by an elections body due to incomplete paperwork.
A serial political party builder, is our GG
Nor should we forget that he campaigned alongside Nigel Farage for Brexit.
But as i mentioned in another topic thread, during 2014 Referendum he campaigned for No. So he has stuck to his unionist beliefs on Scottish independence. But why not tell his supporters to vote Labour Party? They still opposing separatism, don’t they?April 11, 2021 at 7:23 pm #216814ALBKeymaster
His Workers Party of Britain is standing candidates in the local and regional elections on 6 May. On a programme of petty reforms of course.April 12, 2021 at 12:06 am #216815

With echoes (although somewhat of even less significance than Gorgeous George) of the Worker’s Party of Britain.
Some posters will remember a former long standing member of our party, who rode off on his White Stallion to become an elected councillor for the Seaham Community Party. (and who I believe is going to stand again for election as part of the same party)
It was gratifying that at least the Seaham Community Party has an understanding of decorum and sense of duty, unlike those unwashed heathens of the SPGB. I’m sure our former comrade had a tear in his eye as he read the sad announcement that the SCP put out:
“The Seaham Community Party would like to extend its sadness in the death of HRH Duke of Edinburgh, a man who proudly served in the Royal Navy and saw action at the Battle of Crete, Battle of Cape Matapan and the Allied invasion of Sicily.
Appointed as Admiral of the Sea Cadet Force, Colonel-in-Chief of the British Army Cadet force and Commodore-in-Chief of the Air Training Core.
Prince Phillip worked and supported numerous youth related works and charities throughout his life. The thoughts of everyone at Seaham Community Party are with his family and friends.
Rest in Peace”
Good to see that our former comrade has maintained his proud principles and beliefs

BD, a promising sign of the times that after all the soap-opera Prince Harry coverage, people are getting bored with media concentration on Philip.
BBC’s wall-to-wall coverage of Prince Philip’s death has become the most complained-about moment in British television history, as viewers expressed their annoyance that shows such as EastEnders and MasterChef were replaced with royal tributes.
I note Prince Andrew emerged from his self-imposed exile and the media shit-scared to make him address his sex abuse allegations.April 13, 2021 at 2:49 pm #216882Bijou DrainsParticipant
It’s touching that Nigel Farage has written about how important Prince Phillip is to the monarchy and what a fantastic public servant. Usually he would cheerfully stick knifes in the inflatable dinghies that any two year old asylum seekers were attempting to use one to cross the Straights of Dover.
