OK, a bit of fanciful speculation: the Jocks get independence within three years, Labour in England collapses into unelectable chaos and starts thrashing around for a strong man to bring some hope. Red Ed exits stage left. Blair is approached but prefers to stick with the semi-billionaire lifestyle to which Cherie has long been accustomed, Miliband Snr huffily rejects a 'second-best' offer and Balls is increasingly seen as deranged. Mandelson is quietly dying of Aids. Cyclops offers to make a comeback in a safe English or Welsh seat and is laughed out of court. Who else to turn to? Galloway, still a maverick, electrifies the misty-eyed Left in the Commons whenever he moves into orator mode, and is eventually begged by a desperate Labour to ditch Respect and the worst of his Muslim rantings, come back into the fold and lead the Brethren to sunlit Marxist uplands. After all, stranger things have happened (I think) ...The man o' independent mind,
He looks an' laughs at a' that.

With traditional labour voters and the grey vote (of which they are plenty) being sick of seeing their families struggle, any old labour - not your shiney suited 'Professional Politician' type cnut - is in with a chance.
......and Broon doesn't look too bad a bet from where I'm sitting tbh.
Just saying like.

The first time someone showed that video of him praising Saddam that would be Labour's election chances gone. He might be able to con a few Muslims in one constituency at a time, he wouldn't have a hope with the whole country.

His bizarre participation and behaviour in Celebrity Big Brother hardly signifies him as a serious or mature potential leader of the nation.
Finally, he is now unelectable in the wider community because he has identified himself so strongly with the Muslim community. It is my own belief that he is a convert to Islam. He has steadfastly and aggressively refused to be drawn on the point. However, he has been married on four occasions, three of which were to Muslim women and according to Muslim religious rite. This would never... repeat never... be allowed as 'halal' or permissible unless he had first renounced Kufr by formally declaring and accepting the first pillar of Islam, the Shahada ("There is no God but Allah, and Mohammad is his prophet").
The only thing that is in doubt is whether he meant it or not.

Fanciful stuff from Democritus, but unlikely to happen. I reckon the safe money for the next Labour leader should be on Mrs Balls (nee Cooper) who has even started the grooming process if her recent appearances are anything to go by. Mind you, would you vote for someone who shares a bed with the Balls creature?The memories of a man in his old age, are the deeds of a man in his prime.
