George Galloway ousted from UK parliament

Not only did the UK Conservative party win pretty well in this year's parliamentary election, the most definite good news is that one of the worst members of the House of Commons lost his seat there:
As David Cameron's Conservative party seals its victory in Thursday's UK general elections, two radically anti-Israeli MPs infamous for a long past of comments edging on anti-Semitism have lost their posts.

In Bradford West, MP George Galloway failed in his re-election bid, with Labor's Naseem Shah thrashing him soundly in the polls. Shah won 19,977 votes, whereas Galloway's Respect party fielded a mere 8,557, and George Grant of the Conservative party came third with 6,160.

After winning, Shah said Galloway's election campaign had "demeaned democracy," and she told him "you have been sent on your way."

Adding insult to injury, Galloway was also reported to police for retweeting his own party's exit polls before the voting ended. A screen capture proved he had made the tweet, even after he deleted it. The action is illegal according to section 66 of the Representation of the People's Act; police are currently reviewing the matter.

But the radical MP apparently was not to be deterred, announcing his intentions to run for the post of London Mayor.

Another anti-Israeli MP lost his post as well, with David Ward of the Liberal Democrat party falling in Bradford East.
Good they're gone, but it'll be bad if Galloway gets to run for mayor of London.
