Galloway and the race card - again

The Guardian has a report from Bethnal Green with Labour candidate Oona King accusing Respect of anti-semitism:

"I have been told by several people that members of Respect have told them not to vote for me because I am Jewish."

She was speaking the day after attending a memorial service for Jewish war dead at which eggs and vegetables were thrown at mourners.

Respect said it would consider legal action against Ms King if she repeated such "outrageous rubbish".

I'm afraid for those of us who keep close tabs on Respect it is no surprise to read this allegation and it is no surprise that rather than investigate the claim Respect respond with bluster about legal action.

They have still to condemn the attack on Oona King and the other members of the Jewish community.

Galloway is in the gutter.
