Galloway against transvestites

George Galloway does not seem to have consulted anyone before announcing he will stand for London Mayor. Galloway says, “Labour, I understand, is contemplating selecting a transvestite comedian, Eddie Izzard, which would also be an interesting contest. Real Labour versus a transvestite.”

George Galloway implies that transvestites cannot be socialists. I don't know where he is getting that from but such a use of backward prejudice is at variance with all the principles of Socialism.

A candidate to represent all Londoners would reject any marginalisation of any part of the community. People may vote for Galloway out of despair at the failure of all the mainstream parties but our old friend "none of the above" may win this election if there is no credible working class alternative.
