Galloway Fails on Election Law

It has now been several days since Parliament was dissolved, meaning that there are no MPs currently and that the title “MP” is not in use until the next parliament begins.

There has been ample time for politicians to abide by this rule, so these basic errors should have been weeded out by now. Not, it seems, for George Galloway “MP” for Bradford West.

1.2 During the period when Parliament is dissolved before a General Election there are no Members of Parliament. Consequently you may not use that title during this period. From 5pm on the day of dissolution until you are re-elected, the facilities that the House provides for Members in Westminster during a Parliament will not be available to you.

George has been too busy arguing with his constituents on Twitter to check his own affairs were in order.
