The best George Galloway’s party can hope to achieve is taking seats from other unionists. They’re more likely to hand them to separatists.
He has a good eye for political openings, and Labour’s woes might have created a space for an avowedly left-wing, pro-UK figure.
Also: Galloway shakes up Holyrood battle with new unionist alliance; DUP wracked by major rebellion over Stormont reform; and more.
The May Government set a time-bomb under the Union when it agreed to the mass devolution of ex-EU powers. Ministers must think again.
