When asked about Galloway’s view of whether Labor had become a “Zionist party” under the leadership of Sir Keir Starmer, the spokesman said, “I didn’t speak to George today, but when I see him I will get you to answer. “
When told that some voters in the Batley area had suggested yesterday that Galloway was a Muslim ‘revert’ even now, the spokesman said,” This is a matter between George and God.
“He believes in God, but his belief is a thing between him and God.”
The narrator also suggested that claims that Galloway’s campaign ended up in a Tory victory on Jan. July would result were wrong.
“We’re about to win,” said the consultant. “It’s the Labor Party that can’t win. Speak to a local Kirklees Labor councilor and they will tell you the party’s advertising return is so bad it can’t win.
Labor has yet to respond to a request for comment on the party’s campaign at headquarters.
