Galloway To Stand In Oldham East Re-Run ?

The battle for the Muslim vote at the re-run election in Oldham (see my post here) is really going to be interesting, if this comment, on the story of the EDL disrupting a meeting in Oldham's Pakistani Community Centre (the English Community Centre being unavailable) is correct :

Five thugs attempted to attack a Respect open planning meeting in Oldham. They were completely repulsed, immobilized and Greater Manchester Police were alerted and moved in to arrest. None of those in the meeting were hurt.

The meeting was led by George Galloway and Yvonne Ridley. It was called to consider an electoral challenge in the forthcoming Oldham East and Saddleworth by-election. The consensus of the meeting was that a challenge will be necessary.

Hmm. Never a dull moment, is there ?

Ah, George Galloway and Yvonne Ridley.

Truly a marriage made in heaven. But please, don't have any kids.

Looking around for some other news item about the meeting, (as far as Google is concerned, that's the only one at the moment) I noticed a link to this group. I really shouldn't be surprised I suppose, but it's certainly an aspect of the EDL that I can't ever see the BBC mentioning.
