Well never saw that happening, in fact never even knew Bradford had a by-election.

Bit of a kick in the balls for Labour going from a safe majority to losing by 10,000.  Galloway couldn't even garner more than 7000 votes as a Glasgow list candidate in the 2011 Election and has now gone to Bradford and won 18,000 votes! If Labour are losing by-elections like this it's not looking promising for them going forward:

 

George Galloway Respect 18,341 55.9 +52.8

Imran Hussain Labour 8,201 25.0 -20.3

Jackie Whiteley Conservative 2,746 8.4 -22.7

Jeanette Sunderland Liberal Democrat 1,505 4.6 -7.1

Sonja McNally UKIP 1,085 3.3 +1.3

Dawud Islam Green 481 1.5 -0.8

Neil Craig Democratic Nationalists 341 1.0 -0.1

Howling Laud Hope Monster Raving Loony 111 0.3 N/A

Labour were condescending as fuck to the local asians, while George suluted their indefatiguability.

Bradford is full of mass immigration and Gorgeous George always targets Asian voters

 

Only 37% of the constituency is Asian and the rest predominantly white. He picked up 28% of the possible vote and there was 3 Asian candiates - lets be honest most of his votes came from disasatified white working class voters who feel no affinity with the Ed 'I just bought a sausage roll' Milliband.
