Ex-secretary Aisha Ali-Khan saysthere was no spy plot against theRespect MP, adding she has ‘beenthrown to the wolves’ reportsGuardian.Galloway strongly denied hackingor authorising anyone else tohack emails on his behalf, andstands by his story, saying: “Thepolice investigation will no doubtestablish the truth.”Last Sunday George Galloway alleged that he had discoveredhis secretary was working as an“agent” for a Metropolitan police
counterterrorism ofcer who was
running a “dirty tricks” campaignagainst him.It was a serious allegation. “A direct attack on not just me buton democracy,” the MP said.He complained to the police, who promised an investigation, voluntarily referring the matter tothe Independent Police ComplaintsCommission. And he wrote toTheresa May, the home secretary,demanding an inquiry, saying hehad “incontrovertible evidence”that the duo had set up fake emailaddresses to spread “rumour,disinformation and downrightlies”. Guardian reported.But Galloway’s now formersecretary, Aisha Ali-Khan, is
ghting back. She says she ismarried to Az Khan, whomGalloway correctly identied as
a detective inspector in the Met’scounter-terrorism unit, SO15.She is furious that her relationshipis being presented as somehow illicit. Suspended on full pay butnot expecting her job back, Ali-
Khan has led a complaint with
the Met, accusing Galloway of either hacking into her privateemails or ordering someone elseto do so. She believes there can be no other explanation for how he was able to quote verbatim, inhis letter to May, from emails sheand her husband had written toeach other. Galloway says he wasgiven the emails by his lawyer.Galloway has claimed that thecouple “had been sleeping in my house, and without permission, while I was abroad”. He says hediscovered this following a break-in, when Ali-Khan’s parliamentary laptop was stolen from Galloway’shome in Streatham, south London, where she lived for a few months
 while the constituency ofce was
 being set up in Bradford. Ali-Khaninsists Khan never slept in thehouse, but simply “popped in touse the loo” one night before the break-in, Ali-Khan dismisses any talk of conspiracy.

GEORGE Galloway’s Respect party looks set to contest the Croydon North by-election, the Advertiser reported.Respect believes it could emulatethe remarkable result which saw MrGalloway overturn a Labour majority to win Bradford West. Malcolm Wicks, who passed away last month,held Croydon North as a similarly safe Labour seat. But Mr Galloway thinks Respect can appeal to theconstituency’s Asian population by attacking Mr Wicks’ support of theIraq War. The news comes as itemerged Lambeth Council leaderSteve Reed has put himself forwardto be Labour’s candidate. Respecthas yet to choose its hopeful but a
party ofcial told the Advertiser it is“fairly denite” it will stand in the by-
election, which could be held as early as next month.
 A source from Mr Galloway’s ofce
told the Advertiser: “It’s true we areconsidering standing in CroydonNorth, though we don’t have acandidate as of yet. “The demographicof the area suits us and while there’s amassive Labour majority, Wicks towedthe party line on things like tuitionfees and the Iraq War so we think wecan make inroads into it. Certainly wecan wipe the Lib Dems out.”Croydon North has a Muslimpopulation of more than 10,000,though Respect believes it can winsupport in other communities too.Respect’s 2010 candidate MohammedShaikh won only 275 votes in CroydonNorth, compared to Mr Wicks’ majority 
of 16,483, but the party’s prole hassince increased signicantly.
It would not be drawn on potentialcandidates but said it had one or twopeople in mind.“The next stage will to put the proposalto our national executive and council, which can be done pretty quickly,” aspokesman said.“We will know for certain whether we will stand or not within the next ten
days, but it’s looking fairly denite.
“We’re not a huge party but there areone or two people that are certainly interested. We won’t have any 
difculty nding a candidate.”
 Val Shawcross, former Labour leaderof Croydon Council, has applied to beLabour’s candidate.She will face competition fromSelhurst’s Gerry Ryan and Lambeth’sSteve Reed, when the shortlistedcandidates are interviewed by theparty’s national executive committeetomorrow (Wednesday).Mr Reed is a vocal critic of CroydonCouncil’s handling of the UpperNorwood Library saga,It had been thought the election would be held on November 15 tocoincide with the Corby by-electionand the police crime commissioner by-elections.However, it has been pencilled infor November 29, three weeks afterLabour Party members in CroydonNorth select their candidate.
Croydon Spring? Galloway’s Respect party set to contest Croydon North by-election
Sikhs Against the EDL’ will be marching against the English Defence League(EDL) in Walthamstow, East London this Saturday 27th October. A counterdemonstration is being organised by a multi-cultural, multi-racial and multi-faithorganisation known as ‘We Are Walthamstow’. It is a broad-based network of local community groups, political organisations and trade unions. Their aim is to‘celebrate diversity and oppose racism and fascism’ and to show the EDL that they are not welcome in Walthamstow.This is the second time the EDL is coming to Walthamstow within two months. Waltham Forest Council has issued a statement against the EDL march andhas, “called on our whole community to come out”. The last time they cameto Walthamstow was at the beginning of September, when they received acomprehensive show of disapproval. The 200 EDL supporters were blocked off by more than 4000 local people. Thus the police forced them to abandon their marchafter making several arrests.But now they want to cause deliberate provocation and offence to the Muslimcommunity by returning during the holy Muslim festival of Eid. Since its formationthree years ago, they have staged more than 90 provocative demonstrations intowns and cities around the country, attempting to stir up anti-Muslim racismand hatred. Their march in September in Walsall, like many others before, endedin violence when they pelted the police with bricks and sticks and resulted in 28 of their members being arrested.Over this weekend, it has been reported that 53 supporters of the EDL werearrested on the M1 motorway. They were hiding in a removal van heading towardsLondon, apparently to be used as a trojan horse, to allegedly, target a Mosque while the police were occupied at the large TUC demonstration.It is also alleged that among those arrested were EDL leader Tommy Robinson akaStephen Yaxley Lennon and deputy leader Kevin Carroll who is also running forthe Police Commissioner’s position in Bedfordshire on behalf of the EDL’s political wing, the British Freedom Party. The British Freedom Party, is a breakaway groupfrom the BNP, but with equally fascist policies who want to ‘scrap the Equalities Act and ban all manifestations of religious and cultural separatism’.
