FORMER East End politician George Galloway could soon be rivalling Andrew Lloyd Webber - by penning a musical.
The ex Bethnal Green and Bow Respect MP said that amongst the projects he's working on is a musical about his musical heroine Dusty Springfield.
Mr Galloway was unsuccessful in his campaign to win the new parliamentary seat of Poplar and Limehouse after pledging to only stand in the neighbouring seat for just one term.
Since then he has been working on a number of projects and continued his extensive tour of speaking engagements.

Writing in his Daily Record column Mr Galloway reminisced about his musical influences. He said: "The star who shines brighter than all the rest on this trip down memory lane is Dusty Springfield - as fresh today as a spring field should be. And, as it happens, one of the many projects on which I'm working - with Scots writer Ron McKay - is a stage Musical, eponymously entitled Dusty."
He is also planning another trip to Hollywood to discuss a film project and said film director Oliver Stone is interested in it.
