George Galloway says he is not impressed with Kezia Dugdale

George Galloway has hit out at Labour once again, saying Kezia Dugdale lacks the stature and credibility to lead the Scottish wing of the party.

Galloway has announced he is returning to the political fray by standing in the Manchester Gorton by-election. He will do so as an independent candidate, saying Labour is in such a mess he is glad to be free of the party.

Speaking on his talkRADIO show before his candidacy was announced, our presenter ripped into Ms Dugdale during a conservation about Scottish politics and the independence referendum.

He said: “What I see and hear and read [about Dugdale], I’m not impressed.

“Actually what Labour in Scotland needs is a leader, somebody that is demonstrably a leader. People can rally behind them, people can look at [them] and say 'that person could run Scotland.'

“The local elections coming up in May may break the back of the Scottish Labour Party."
