SPECULATION was growing this morning that the result of the election could mark the end of the Respect party in Tower Hamlets.

As the ballot papers were still being verified, party activists were predicting that both George Galloway and Abjol Miah had missed out on the Westminster hot seats.

One Tory insider told the Advertiser he thought the loss for the Respect party could mark the end of the party in the borough.

While party activists were predicting Rushanara Ali would regain the Labour seat that was lost to Mr Galloway in the last election.
