The bookmakers have George Galloway in third place for the position of Mayor of London, which is determined by the Supplementary Vote. Neither Sadiq Khan nor Zac Goldsmith stands any realistic chance of winning outright on first preferences. They, and all other Mayoral candidates who want to win, need to start engaging with Galloway's policy proposals.
I won't be joining the Labour Party, but I am part of the wider labour movement. As such, I will be voting for Jeremy Corbyn. I will be voting for hope.
The support of Oxford University Labour Club's leadership, and other sections of Oxford's Far Left, for Jeremy Corbyn should not come as a surprise to anyone familiar with the state of politics at Oxford
Now that he finds himself without a day job, maybe it is time for Galloway to focus his energies on what he does best. Maybe he will do a greater service to society as an activist and speaker fighting for the causes he believes in rather than a salaried MP who doesn't seem to create enough of an impact to get re-elected.
The Greens have steam coming out of their ears after Ofcom ruled they are not a 'major' party and therefore will not be included in the televised leader's debates in the run up to the general election.
It isn't a contradiction to be anti-war and left-wing at the same time as being pro-Kurd and in favour of arming the Kurds. I have been a long-standing opponent of western military interventions in the Muslim-majority world, almost all of which - from Afghanistan in 2001 and Iraq in 2003 to Libya in 2011 - have resulted in civilian bloodshed and terrorist blowback. But I'm not a pacifist.
The assault suffered by George Galloway in broad daylight in a west London street recently was an attack on democracy. Though some might wish it were not the case, Mr Galloway is a Member of Parliament with a mandate to articulate the views he does on issues at home and abroad.
Darling's assertions that Salmond's claims about revenues from the North Sea are bullish are true. The last few weeks have seen a bewildering range of claims not just by the politicians but by experts who seem to have been drawn into both sides of the debate.
The inconvenient truth is that the collective punishment of the Palestinian people in Gaza is a collective endeavour in its own right - led by Israel, enforced by Egypt, endorsed by Saudi Arabia. Pity the poor Palestinians. Their territories are occupied by the Jewish state; their cause is abandoned by the Arab world.
I, for one, cannot wait for this debate to be over in September. Once, we finally get over this issue, we can finally focus on the real issues - housing, social security, schooling, the NHS, pensions etc. Only when the referendum has concluded we will turn back to these issues and deal with them as a united nation.
Human rights activists fear that in spite of its complicity in human rights abuse, Press TV may soon be back on the airwaves, broadcasting more forced confessions and propaganda at a time when President Rouhani is presiding over a bloodbath of political prisoners.
You don't have to ban George Galloway from speaking; just don't invite him, or others like him, in the first place. Our students' unions are undoubtedly a place for lively academic debate, and for students to discuss real-world issues in a safe environment. However, inviting rape deniers and apologists voids this safe environment...
No-platform policies are not a form of Orewellian censorship - they are a reasonable concept encouraging self-regulation. Rather than 'banning' individuals outright, we as students must place significant pressure on the relevant authorities to withhold the right of certain individuals to speak at certain times on campus.
It is outrageous that this man has spoken to some of history's most evil personalities - yet he refused to debate with my fellow Oxford student, Eylon Aslan-Levy, purely because of his nationality. As Galloway plans to visit other campuses across the UK, I hope to use this blog to inform my fellow students that Galloway should never be made welcome on any University campus.
Respect MP, George Galloway, has succeeded in raising over £160,000 via crowdfunding to finance a documentary on Tony Blair - The Killing Of Tony Bla...
The anti-intervention left and right have totally given up on the idea of the most powerful countries in the world being able to have any positive effect upon the world at large. In addition the anti-war movement claims to be on the side of peace, as if we occupy a world created by Disney, where the world is a simple choice between peace and war.
