Galloway election decision splits Respect Party conference
More controversy at todays Respect Party conference.
They have decided that George Galloway is to stand for the Respect Party in Scotland in the 2011 parliamentary elections.
I have no idea how this will play out given that there are already two left parties the Scottish Socialist Party and Solidarity who will contest the elections there.
I am pretty sure that the Scottish Green Party will pick up new seats, I can't see Galloway winning though.
The Respect Party has also voted at their conference today to join the Coalition of Resistance.
The ecosocialist group Socialist Resistance have left Respect because of the Galloway decision.
I have no idea how this will play out either.
Interesting report here from Liam.
