That man is playing a dangerous game. Eventually he will suffer the consequences of his maverick actions. I'm convinced voting fraud won him the election and I hope they find enough evidence to remove him from parliament.
What a ridiculous accusation!!! If you knew anything about the election in Bethnal Green and Bow, you would know that New Labour did not make one complaint. RESPECT, on the other hand, did make complaints. New Labour sent out postal vote registration forms with Oona King asking people to send them back to her. AMICUS asked people to register for a postal vote, with the forms ending up in a New Labour HQ in Newcastle! Dodgy stuff, and it is nothing to do with RESPECT.
George Galloway is a tw*t! This is an absurd idea. Imagine the racial tension which will span from this. It will cause more problems than it solves. Now if they offered to hang George Galloway from a council building Id be well in favour.
If you are going to make incredibly stupid comments, then please attaempt to explain them. How on earth would it cause racial tensions? He twinned Dundee with Nablus about 20 years ago and that seems fine.
to take such a polarised position
One side has a country, one side doesn't. One side has the best education, health and water systems, one side doesn't. One side has ample land space and resources One side contains the most overcrowded city on earth. One side has high living standards, one side has abject poverty. One side has an army, one side doesn't. It's a pretty uneven situation wouldn't you think nulab?
It seems to be deliberately confrontational. It could affect community relations between Jewish and Muslim areas of London and could cause conflict.
Not all Jews are zionists. Many will be proud to see a Palestinian flag flying. And it will only affect Tower Hamlets.
I don't see it reasonable to fly their flag and take sides on a sensitive conflict which has left so many innocent people injured or killed on both sides.
RESPECT is a political party, we need to take sides with many issues. Why do you act as if both sides are as bad as each other when one is a world power with fantastic resources and an army that kills three times more Palestinians than desperate, poor Palestinians kill Israelis?
But I would find the Palestinian flag on a London council building offensive.
But not the Israeli flag? How impartial.
I've already said that both sides need to compromise.
What have the Palestinians got left to give? 18% of the 100% they used to live in. And that 18% is studded with Jewish settlements, Jewish only roads, and checkpoints.
To anyone who agrees with his plan:
Please give me one possible benefit of it. "Raising awareness" doesn't count. You really think many people living in Tower Hamlets don't know what Palestine and Israel are?
It shows RESPECT's solidarity with the people of Palestine and can improve understanding between Palestinians and locals in Tower Hamlets.
