  • This is probably one of the most ifgushtnil and thought-oprovoking articles written so far on the Bradford West by election, but I would like to make the following points. It is difficult to judge the effectiveness of an MP by merely looking at an attendance sheet for the Commons. Galloway had the largest staff of any backbench MP and an office that operated daily for his constituents. His office aside, I don’t believe he claimed expenses either while, as we know, some MPs and ministers had their snouts in the trough to such an extent some are serving time in prison. Galloway tapped in to voter apathy and turned it around and reignited interest in the democratic process. Labour, as has done so many times in the past, put forward a candidate wearing a Labour hat and just assumed people would vote for Labour. In other words they took the electorate for granted. You’ve failed to mention the war in Iraq, for which the people of this country have still not forgiven Blair, and until Labour genuinely returns to its working class roots the party will forever be blighted by the spectre of Blair. Just a few observations from a miner’s daughter who will forever remember how coal, steel and shipyard communities in my beloved north were wiped out by the greedy and corrupt politicians who sat in Parliament claiming expenses for their 100 per cent attendance. On reflection it might have been better for all of us if none of them had bothered to turn up to vote. Yours in solidarity Yvonne Ridley
