Galloway posted a picture of himself sitting on a bed with his young son and the slogan “Dad, you’ve got to do this. I’ve got your back!”.

It included a caption: “I’m standing for Mayor of London 2016”.

On 7 May, Galloway lost the Bradford West seat to Labour’s Naz Shah by a majority of more than 11,000 votes.
