The people of Rochdale democratically decided that Galloway was to hold the seat for the Works Party of Britain, securing 38% of the votes and beating the Labour, Conservative and Reform UK campaigners.

Galloway, however, denied any knowledge of Nick Griffin, asserting he had never met him. He challenged Sunak to clarify these accusations during Prime Minister’s Questions, “I really don’t know what he’s talking about,” he said.

Richard Tice, leader of Reform UK, which is a rebrand of the UKIP Party, argued that the by-election result was “unfair”, suggesting, “now the polls have closed, people across the UK need to know the truth about this election campaign.”

Sunak’s Divisive Rhetoric

Although Sunak claims the Rochdale election was “divisive”, the Prime Minister’s use of words such as “extremists” for those supporting a Muslim country is considerably divisive in itself.
