Galloway by-election win rattles Sunak; he’ll crack down harder on protest against him

Sunak’s speech: look at that face. He knows the game’s up.

Rishi Sunak has responded to George Galloway’s pro-Palestine by-election win in Rochdale with a speech attacking the new MP himself – and also peaceful protest.

His comments outside Downing Street were pre-publicised, meaning some of us were able to speculate on what he would say…

… and that was very close to the fact of it:

While he did not announce new laws against protest, Sunak did encourage police to act more strongly during events – attracting heavy criticism:

The speech has provoked strident responses from both pro-Palestine protesters and the Workers’ Party of Britain, whose MP George Galloway now is:

Sunak was really saying he would do everything he could to silence Galloway and stop the protests against the genocide that Israel is carrying out in Gaza.

If you are as disgusted by this revolting display as This Writer, you have two options. The first is to join peaceful protests and bear witness to attempts at suppression by police, acting as Sunak’s political puppets as described in his speech.

The other is to vote for parties other than either the Conservatives or Labour. Remember:

Sunak and Starmer – and the parties they lead – are as bad as each other. Rochdale has shown the way and it is for those of us in other constituencies to follow.

    Everything about Sunak’s far right speech was wrong.
    Last time the Police were encouraged to be more heavy handed they brutalised (mainly) young women on a peaceful vigil following the bloody murder of Sarah Everard by a serving policeman.
    Sunak’s (and Starmer’s) subservience to the fascist Netanyahu and his unblinking supporters, including Biden, over a flawed and corrupt definition of anti-Semitism is shameful and shows his moral and political corruption.
    Love him or hate him, Galloway was elected by a huge majority in a fair election in an official UK election, clearly Sunak is not the democrat that he claims to be.
    The UK is a train wreck, everything has failed but mostly Sunak, the Tories and Government.

    RE: That picture of keef in the tweet near the bottom of the article….

    “Working towards a two state solution”

    Yet there’s a union flag and an israeli flag… And NO Palestinian flag, so this “two state solution” obviously doesn’t involve the Palestinians.
