The Rochdale by-election is about Gaza. Is that why the media aren’t covering it?

George Galloway: is he the most popular politician in Rochdale?

Did you know the Rochdale by-election is tomorrow – February 29?

It may have slipped your mind. The mainstream news media seem to have found other things to talk about after Labour’s candidate had his party membership suspended for claiming that Israel allowed the October 7, 2023, Hamas attack to happen in order to have an excuse for genocide in Gaza.

Perhaps coverage has lapsed because the front-runner seems to be the representative of the Workers’ Party, rather than Labour or the Conservatives – because his campaign has focused strongly on support for the people of Gaza, and because this has been popular with the people of the constituency.

Palestinians support George Galloway and, as you can see from the clip below, people in Rochdale do too:

He has made his position clear from day one of his campaign:

And of course he is bolstered by the fact that both Labour and the Conservative Party have supported Israel’s genocide in Gaza, that has murdered and maimed so many children like those in the clip.

Nobody should be voting for a representative of a party that supported the genocide – This Writer agrees with Tom London (below) on that, and I’m sure the people of Rochdale do too.

He certainly seems to have support on the doorstep:

And he has the support of campaigning journalists too:

If you’re in Rochdale, will he have your vote?

    It goes against the Right-Wing narrative when the “Baying Mobs” sing John Lennon’s Imagine side by side with Jewish holding placards stating “No Genocide, Not in my name”.
    The press have no appetite for situations where Peace may “break out”.
