George Galloway has described being Bradford West’s MP as “98 per cent tedium”. In an interview with Total Politics, the Respect Party figurehead — whose Twitter account has erroneously claimed that he was MP for Blackburn — whinges:
“I like elections more than I like serving.”
Unless it’s 200 miles away in London, of course, where Galloway fancies a crack at being mayor:
“it’s the next best thing to a presidential election that you’re ever going to get in Britain.”
An office overlooking the Thames is quite the venue for entertaining foreign despots.
