George Galloway is the only successful Respect candidate. Two
others, where they came second are given below. This was the
party that was going to reflect the millions against the war and
break the mould of British politics, don't forget. Also the CPB
results.

At the moment, with 16 seats to declare, the overall result is:

Labour 344 (-47); Conservative 197 (+33; Liberal-Democrat 62
(+11)

Blair is reshuffling his Cabinet right now.  Michael Howard will
stand down as Tory Leader, as soon as they decide how and when to
choose his successor.

I'll post a BBC review of the fascist vote in a moment.
