Is it too much to ask that the other parties agree next year to field but a single candidate against Galloway? As for the people of Bradford West, well, the best that can be said is that electing Galloway once might be a misfortune, doing so twice would be very much worse than careless. This is one seat the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats should agree to cede to Labour.
