Keir Hardie has little in common with Ed Miliband.

Ed Miliband Says 'Awful' George Galloway Will Not Rejoin Labour


Ed Miliband and George Galloway



Ironically of course, George Galloway has more in common with the original hopes and aspirations of the Labour Party and the Trade Union Congress, (who founded the Labour Party in 1899), than Ed Milliband and his brother, or many of the present incumbents of the Labour Party benches in the House of Commons. You need only to read some of the TUC history or research Keir Hardy to understand how and why the Labour Party came into existence.

Many Labour MP's today however, seem more concerned with protecting their positions and perceptions of their own importance, or maintaining the status quo for the benefit of the banks and speculators, or businesses and the excess of the "free markets". It was the TUC that created the Labour Party (not the other way round) perhaps they would do well to understand their roots.
