Having been removed from the Labour Party in 2003 due to his stance on the Iraq war, Galloway has a vendetta against the party, calling out Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer in his latest by-election victory in Rochdale.

Galloway seemed confident in this, suggesting that his backing of 15,000 supporters in the area would be enough to trump Raynor’s backing of just 4000.

Following the conversation, Galloway insisted that “I would not myself have voted for Hamas – I am an Arafat man and have been since the 1970s – but the people picked Hamas,” warning that the UK should not mess with foreign affairs.

The Prime Minister admitted that Anderson’s comments were “wrong” but refrained from labelling them “Islamophobic” like many former Tory MPs and current Labour politicians have already.
