his charity's accounts

This is one of the things I don't understand. It is NOT his charity. It is a charity he helped set up to aid an Iraqi girl with leukemia. If - and it is a big if indeed - the charity is guilty of any wrongdoing how is that connected with George? May as well blame the poor girl herself! I have said before I am no fan of any politician so I have no axe to grind against or on behalf of Mr G. but the way these things have been reported is ludicrous.

As far as I can see the bigger issue is the 'oil vouchers' accusation but even there I cannot see any wrongdoing by Galloway. If, and again the if is huge, Saddams regime did allocate anything to Galloway then what is the problem provided that George did not take them up on their 'generous offer'. The fact he did not use any such vouchers, even if they were issued, does not seem to be in dispute by anyone.

As far as I can see the only crime he is guilty of is backing the loosing side! Good luck to him and may he long continue to be a thorn in the side of the establishment:-)
