George Galloway

Data de nascimento: 16. Agosto 1954

George Galloway is a British politician, broadcaster and writer. Between 1987 and 2015, with a gap in 2010–12, he represented four constituencies as a Member of Parliament, elected as a candidate for the Labour Party and later the Respect Party.

After becoming the youngest ever Chairman of the Scottish Labour Party in 1981, he became General Secretary of the London-based charity War on Want in 1983, remaining in the post until elected as MP for Glasgow Hillhead at the 1987 general election. In 2003, Galloway was expelled from the Labour Party, having been found guilty by the party's national constitutional committee of four of the five charges of bringing the party into disrepute, including having called on Arabs to fight British troops.In 2004, he became a member of Respect–The Unity Coalition, later known as the Respect Party . Having decided not to seek re-election for the Glasgow Kelvin constituency prior to the 2005 general election, he then stood for the London constituency of Bethnal Green and Bow; defeating the sitting Labour MP, Oona King, and served for one parliamentary term.He returned to the House of Commons at the Bradford West by-election in 2012, but lost his seat at the 2015 general election. Galloway stood as a candidate in the 2016 London mayoral election, but lost to the Labour Party nominee, Sadiq Khan; finishing in seventh place with 1.4% of the vote. The Respect Party "voluntarily deregistered" itself at the Electoral Commission in August 2016. He stood for election to Parliament in 2017, in the Manchester Gorton constituency gaining 5.7% of the vote.

Early in his career, Galloway was an opponent of Saddam Hussein, but he has been accused by David Aaronovitch and Christopher Hitchens of changing his mind about the Iraqi leader when it became Western policy not to support him.Galloway testified to the United States Senate in 2005 over alleged illicit payments from the United Nations' Oil for Food Program. Galloway supports the Palestinian side in the Israeli–Palestinian conflict, opposes Zionism, and was involved in the Viva Palestina aid convoys.A long-standing associate of Jeremy Corbyn, Galloway has supported the Labour leader since his election campaign and subsequent election victory in September 2015. In the 2016 EU membership referendum, he advocated a "Leave" vote, campaigning with the cross-party, pro-Brexit organisation Grassroots Out.
