Hardly surprising Bradfords around 40% Muslim pretty much the only places he can get elected are where theres a Muslim majority, he supported Pakistans dictatorship as well as defended Iran for hanging gays.
He's the sole representative for the 'Respect Party' of which he is the sole member. His majority vote has arisen because he has a bond with the Islamic community in Bradford, West Yorkshire. He'll stir up the House of Commons, for sure.
Nope. Similar to the Greens with their one seat in Brighton. He can vote whichever way he pleases on issues, but aslong as the government maintains a majority it's irrelevant.
The only problem is if there is a rebellion from Tory/Lib Dem MP's or if the coalition splits, the government may then need votes from the smaller parties to force a particularly contentious issue through.
