Who is George Galloway?

George Galloway is a British politician, broadcaster, and writer. Since late March 2012 he has been the Respect Party Member of Parliament for Bradford West.

After first coming to prominence in Scottish politics, he became General Secretary of the London based charity War on Want in 1983, remaining in the post until 1987. Galloway was first elected in that year's general election as a Labour Party MP representing Glasgow Hillhead. From 1997, Galloway represented its successor constituency Glasgow Kelvin, and remained as the MP for the seat until 2005. In October 2003, Galloway was expelled from Labour having been found guilty of four charges of bringing the party into disrepute.

He became a leading member of the Respect Party in 2004, and was elected as the MP for Bethnal Green and Bow at the general election the following year. After unsuccessfully contesting the seat of Poplar and Limehouse in 2010, he returned as a Westminster MP following the Bradford West by-election in March 2012.
