One face that was noticeably absent from the crucial vote on the Benefits Uprating Bill, was that of George Galloway. It seems Galloway had more important things to do: like prepare for Bradford City’s match against Aston Villa in the Capital One Cup (The League Cup). It’s good that Bradford City beat Villa, but Galloway’s priorities are, shall we say, all wrong?
For someone who describes himself as a socialist, Galloway is a remarkably selfish and self-obsessed man. He couldn’t even be bothered to speak on behalf of his constituents, many of whom will be affected by the Con Dem’s government’s decision to cap benefit rises by 1% over 3 years. I wonder how his constituents feel about his absence from the Commons on such an important day?
I realize that I’ve cut Galloway a little too much slack in the past. No more. I’m watching you, Gorgeous. The Cat is putting you on notice.
