The Respect Party has scored another victory in Bradford winning 5 seats in Bradford Council. The leader of Bradford Council Labour Candidate Ian Greenwood has also lost his seat.
Will the 3 main political parties in the U.K. get the message? The messages are many but the main points are that the people of Bradford are against the endless wars which have cross party support in the U.K. and also that we can’t see any difference to our lives which ever of the main parties is in power. Muslims were traditionally Labour voters but the Labour party cannot count on that any more.
Muslims in Bradford have woken up to the fact that they can actually make a difference by getting out and voting, something which is controversial in itself as it is interpreted by some as wrong to be a participant in any form of goverment which is not shariah.
