George Galloway

... his daughter...and his last wife had a baby four months ago After his sensational by-election victory of last week, he might have been expected to pause for breath. Instead, three-times-married ‘Gorgeous George’ Galloway flew to Amsterdam and took a fourth bride – a woman 30 years his junior. The ceremony, in a hotel, happened less than 48 hours after the MP took the Labour stronghold of Bradford West with an astonishing 10,000-plus majority for his Respect ...

George Galloway

George Galloway’s hailing of his by-election victory as a “Bradford spring” shows the deaf ear to irony we have come to expect from one who once called Syria’s Bashar al-Assad “a breath of fresh air”. Even former allies have long enjoyed pricking the new MP’s pomposity. Notebook turned to Chris Mullin’s diaries for his account of a parliamentary visit to Vietnam in 1995, when he and Mr Galloway were both leftwing Labour MPs. Mr Galloway clearly ...

Diana Wallis

ALDE leader opposes bid by Diana Wallis but Wallis says she will continue ‘until the end'. Is Diana Wallis going to see through her candidacy for the presidency of the European Parliament? Or is she about to be bought off by the promise of a vice-presidency? Those are the questions being turned over repeatedly in the corridors and committee rooms of Brussels and Strasbourg.

British Liberal MEP Diana Wallis has announced she will stand for the presidency of the European Parliament as an independent candidate, in a bid to derail the deal struck behind closed doors by the centre-right European People's Party (EPP) and the Group of the Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats (S&D) to replace Jerzy Buzek at the end of his term in January. "I feel that there is a growing sense that whilst we talk much about democracy we seem to have a blind spot when it ...

Edward Balls

Ed Balls, the shadow chancellor, warned the "world is making the 1930s mistake" after Moody's move to put Britain on “negative” watch amid fears of contagion from the eurozone debt crisis. "Even though it is clear in Greece, in Ireland, in other countries, in Britain too (that) this austerity isn't working, the message is 'Plough on, dig a deeper hole, carry on with an austerity that is failing'," he told the BBC Radio 4 Today programme. "I fear what's happening here is that ...

The New-York-based company is prepared to offer a 3 percent pay increase with 1.25 percent of that amount awarded on a merit basis, not enough to offset U.K. inflation, said Barry Fitzpatrick, deputy general secretary for the National Union of Journalists.

Ed Miliband has said Labour is on the "right path" in supporting a cap on public sector pay rises, amid criticism from two of the party's union backers. Unite and the GMB, two of the UK's largest trade unions, say the move is a "serious mistake" and could lead the party to a general election defeat. But Labour's leader told the BBC he would "stand up for what's right" and it was "tough" if others disagreed. Mr Miliband added that the party had to face up to "economic reality". In ...
