Respect, Bradford West by-election

"Gorgeous" George Galloway has won a massive victory in the Bradford West by-election. The Respect party leader overturned a 5,000 Labour majority to take the seat with a 10,000 margin. This blog can only salute his indefatigability.

But what does this tell us about the state of mainstream politics?

Nothing, of course. Galloway's USP is sucking up to muslims. All this result tells us is that muslims now rule in Bradford West and have put their own man in parliament. In the future voting will be increasingly along ethnic lines and less about ideology as such.

Islam is not an ethnicity.

The OED defines ethnicity as a racial, cultural or religious group, however I do appreciate that Islam is basically a religion.
