Craig Murray Joins George Galloway’s Workers Party As Candidate


The Workers Party of Britain has selected Craig Murray, a former diplomat, to represent them in the upcoming General Election, adding a seasoned figure to their ranks.

Murray, who served as the UK’s envoy in Uzbekistan from 2002 to 2004 before facing dismissal, brings a wealth of experience to the table.

His foray into politics began in 2005 when he contested the Blackburn seat, then held by foreign secretary Jack Straw, as an independent candidate.

Now, Murray has been entrusted with representing the Workers Party of Britain in Blackburn, a constituency currently represented by George Galloway, who secured victory in the Rochdale by-election.

Despite finishing fifth out of seven candidates in 2005, garnering 5% of the total vote, Murray remains undeterred. He previously contested the July 2009 Norwich North by-election, where he finished sixth.

In the forthcoming election, Murray is set to face Labour’s Kate Hollern, who succeeded Jack Straw in Blackburn. Beyond his political endeavors, Murray’s advocacy extends to causes like supporting Wikileaks founder Julian Assange’s extradition battle with the United States.

However, his activism hasn’t been without consequences; Murray served an eight-month jail term in 2021 for contempt of court related to his commentary on the trial of former Scottish first minister Alex Salmond.

A statement on the Workers Party of Britain website said: “Murray’s very name carries the weight of credibility and conviction, renowned for his lifelong crusade against human rights abuses, obfuscation, and global injustice.

“He has fearlessly championed these sacred causes at every turn.

“During his tenure as Her Majesty’s Ambassador to Uzbekistan from 2002 to 2004, Murray courageously defied the party line to expose the Karimov regime’s grotesque crimes against humanity – braving the wrath of his Foreign Office masters.

“Such principled resistance to torture and tyranny stands as a testament to his uncompromising moral rectitude.

“His relentless pursuit of transparency in global politics and fervent advocacy for human rights epitomize the values championed by the Workers Party.

“In him, the proud traditions of ethical economics, dignified labour, and equitable distribution find their modern voice.

“Rejecting the pernicious creeds of neoliberalism that have laid waste to our national fabric, Murray offers a bold, patriotic vision of Britain’s revival through the Worker’s Party’s planned, socially conscious governance.

“The Workers Party stands shoulder to shoulder with Murray, aligning with all those brave enough to defy the chains of this oppressive parliament.

“In Murray, Blackburn discovers its champion of the working class – a stalwart advocate who will relentlessly amplify the voices of the marginalised.”
