British Respect Party MP George Galloway has announced plan to fight Boris Johnson in his bid to become the next mayor of London.
Galloway told the state-run Russian TV, Russia Today that he has appointed a team of experts to examine possibilities about him running for the Mayor of London at the next election.
Speaking to RT presenter Max Keiser, Galloway said: “I have a committee which is seriously looking at the prospect of [me] running for Mayor of London at the next election.
“Iâ„¢d like to fight Boris Johnson, and I think David Cameron probably wishes Iâ„¢d be fighting Boris Johnson because if Iâ„¢m not, Boris Johnson is back in Parliament fighting him.”
The 58-year-old, who was expelled from the Labour party for bringing it into disrepute, hinted at the financial policies he would takes as London Mayor.
Galloway said: “We accept that finance is an important part of London’s economy.
“We will execute a regime of justice and fairness and democratic penetration of their [the bankers] workings, because there is no point in having an economy unless it works for the people.”
Galloway was elected as Bradford West MP during last year’s by-election.
