"Thank you for the sound clip...

Not just a sound clip. The link I gave lets you see a full video of the whole appearance, streamed via Real Audio or Windows Media Player. I don't know how long it'll be there, but it's worth seeing the whole thing rather than just the snippets.

An impressive performance. Bravura is the word. And yes, of course it was a performance, but then that's the business he's in, performing in public - it's just that he does it better than most.

Like greg, I probably wouldn't buy a car from him. But I'd be even more sure not to try selling him a dodgy motor.

One point Galloway made which I felt deserved more attention, when he pointed out that the charity had accepted money even from the Saudi Royal Family, since it was seen as more important to get money than to worry too much about where it came from.

And that bit where the Democrat senator tried to make out that when politricians in America get money from suspect sources they always make a point of paying it back. I somehow think that's a rather over optimistic view of what actually goes on.
