Party Introduction

Left-wing, socialist, and populist party active in Great Britain; concentrates on an anti-war platform. Source: Wikipedia

Left-wing Respect Party was founded in London in 2004 by George Monbiot of The Guardian and Salma Yaqoob of Birmingham Stop the War Coalition, in opposition to the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.

Their name derives from the words, 'Respect, Equality, Socialism, Peace, Environmentalism, Community and Trade Unionism'.

Currently, the party's leader is George Galloway MP for Bradford West, who took the helm in March 2012.

Following the 2004 London Assembly and European Parliament elections, Respect formed an alliance with the Socialist Workers Party, and Preston SWP member Michael Lavalette won the council seat.

Commenting on the party in 2004, George Galloway said, "Respect. It's a young word. It's a black word. It's the first postmodern name for an electoral political movement; most are one or other arrangement of the words The, Something, and Party. With respect, we're different."
