Galloway loses seat in British vote
A colourful left-wing politician nicknamed "Gorgeous George" Galloway suffered a disaster in Britain's election as he lost his seat on Friday and was reported to police for breaking election rules.
A firebrand campaigner known for his championing of pro-Palestinian issues and criticism of Western military interventions in the Middle East, Galloway lost his seat to a candidate of the centre-left Labour party.
A stony-faced Galloway glowered from under a trilby hat as Labour rival Naz Shah won by 19,977 votes to his 8,557 in the northern English constituency of Bradford West.
