“There are totemic seats where a non-Labour result would be a delight: Oona King losing Bethnal Green & Bow to Respect’s George Galloway.”
John Harris, author of So Now Who Do We Vote For?

“I could never vote Labour again, not after what they have done to this country, so I certainly won’t be voting for Oona King. She didn’t listen when we said we didn’t want to go to war, and she doesn’t listen when we tell her what we need here.”
Tracey Emin, artist and Bethnal Green resident

“Labour insiders admit Oona King faces an uphill battle to prevent Respect’s George Galloway taking Bethnal Green & Bow.”
London Evening Standard

“The only person who presents a real, honest and genuinely left wing alternative is Galloway and Respect. They’re the only party that is properly explicit about this criminal war.”
Gilad Atzmon, jazz musician

“Politics is about persuasion, and Oona King seems unwilling or unable to persuade anyone that she acted correctly on the war. Perhaps that’s why she’s making herself so scarce.” online magazine
