Anneliese Dodds responds to reports of intimidation by George Galloway supporters in the Batley and Spen by-election

Anneliese Dodds MP, Labour’s Party Chair, responding to reports on Channel 4 of intimidation by George Galloway supporters in the Batley and Spen by-election, said:

“These reports of intimidation by George Galloway’s supporters are unacceptable and have no place in our democracy.

“George Galloway brings division and turmoil wherever he goes – what’s happening in Batley and Spen is on him. He needs to get his house in order and call off these attacks.

“Next week the people of Batley and Spen have a chance to reject Galloway’s message of division by voting for Labour’s Kim Leadbeater, the only local candidate in this election.”
