George Galloway celebrates ‘Blackburn triumph’ on Twitter after winning Bradford West by-election

George Galloway appears to have become a little confused after celebrating his recent by-election victory in Bradford when he took to Twitter to laud his “Blackburn triumph”.

Residents of Blackburn will be forgiven for being a little perplexed, as Mr Galloway had in fact won a seat in Bradford West, a Yorkshire city 40 miles away.
Mr Galloway, who ran under the Respect Party banner, led his campaign on the purportedly deep understanding he had of the constituency and its needs.
However, he seemed to have suffered a brief memory lapse when he tweeted at 08.30 this morning: “Welcome to the 6000 new followers. I will try to live up to your expectations. Shattered but happy after the Blackburn triumph.”
He then quickly corrected the mistake, tweeting just minutes later: “Bradford is home for me now.”
He then suggested to his 63,000 followers that his account had been hacked, tweeting: “Nice try. Password now changed.”
