Defections Begin

The East London Advertiser reports the decision of the longest-serving councillor in Tower Hamlets to abandon Respect for Labour after just five months membership of Galloway’s organisation:

A Respect spokesman commenting on the high-level defection called Councillor Muhammad Ghulam Mortuza “a rat” and the Labour Party a “a sinking ship”.

I wonder if he knows what a Freudian slip is.
