FORMER Respect MP George Galloway thanked the people of London’s East End for their support, then told them: “I’m not going away.”

Mr Galloway spoke to the East London Advertiser after his defeat to Labour’s Jim Fitzpatrick at Poplar & Limehouse in last week’s General Election.

He revealed his plans to go to Hollywood, his thoughts on the election campaign and his gratitude to East Enders.

Mr Galloway said: “I will never forget the people of Tower Hamlets and always be grateful to them for what they did for me.

“It was the people of the borough that picked me up and gave me another chance.

“They gave me the opportunity to speak for them for five years and I never stopped.”
