Subject: BS: Did George Galloway Get A Fair Hearing
From: GUEST,albert
Date: 23 Jul 07 - 06:26 PM

It seems to me that George Galloway got a fairer hearing in the republican controlled US Senate than he did in Parliament this evening.
There was the sad and mad sight of hardened pro war war MPs pretending to be hurt because Galloway had the cheek to name and shame them. Well done Galloway. It is a fact that the only figures being punished in this country over Iraq are those who opposed the war [Galloway,David Kelly,assorted whistleblowers and army refusniks etc]
However, the other victims are the hundreds of thousands of dead,maimed and traumatised Iraqis. We don't know their names or their lives but their blood is everywhere.

By the Bye, has he apologised to that reporter yet, you know the one that told the truth about him, who GG defamed under the protection of House Rules? He should have done that as that was what he was ordered to do, by the House Committee that investigated the matter.

Galloway was wrong on Big Brother but was correct about the invasion of Iraq.
The result has been a catastrophe in that country.
Not only was he correct about the invasion and war in that country but he was hounded out of the Labour Party and now [temporarily ] out of Parliament.
As one who has seen him outside a Labour Party conference giving an anti war speech in torrential rain and standing on an old box while the mass ranks of the pro war party sat in comfort inside I can only disagree with Guest Sinky and Terribus above!

Eanjay is quite right to mention the dead ,maimed and traumatised UK and US who are also the victims of the invasion and war in Iraq.
These are overwhelmingly from working class families in both countries and the military has been busy in poor and rundown areas recruiting new soldiers to go and fight..of course they don't talk about the horrific scenes the recruits are likely to encounter or the terrible prospects they face of having limbs blown off or being psychologically wrecked by the experience of war.And of course as Michael Moore pointed out in one of his films , the ruling class have kept its own sons and daughters well away from the killing zones of Iraq.
However,the organisation started by Rose Gentle,mother of Gordon Gentle a soldier killed in Iraq ensured that when Blair left Downing St the last sight he saw as he left by limo were the military families of dead and injured soldiers calling for the troops to be brought home and demanding that Blair face prosecution for war crimes.

well he was fairly safe predicting it would be a tragedy. Obviously some people were going to get killed - that's what happens in wars. And for them and their family, its a tragedy.

I don't see or hear any great insight into the situation.

He's an opportunist. I think Big Brother was a good career move. I'd not really heard of him til then. I haven't heard very much since. Perhaps he ought to try for Countdown or They Think its All Over - something with a bit of substance - if it wouldn't be too much of a stretch.

I remember that interview with Donald Trelford, when Saddam hanged that young reporter Trelford had working for him on The Observer.

He was a real piece of work Saddam; it was never going to end well for him. It would have so easy to look civilised and decent in those circumstances, and acted that way.

He was nasty and too dumb to see he was vulnerable. Did Bush even know who Saddam was? Bush had to be seen to do something after 9/11 - Saddam was a beetle he could squash - there weren't going to be too many mourners.

I don't pretend to have any special insight, but George Galloway.... I can't believe that you're seriously proposing him as anything but a Big Brother Contestant.

The loony left would have us support the "freedom fighters"

I nicked this from David Thompson

"During the campus convulsions of the late 1960s, when rebellion against any authority was considered obedience to every virtue, the film 'To Die in Madrid', a documentary about the Spanish Civil War, was shown at a small liberal arts college famous for, and vain about, its dedication to all things progressive. When the film's narrator intoned, 'The rebels advanced on Madrid,' the students, who adored rebels and were innocent of information, cheered. Antioch College in Yellow Springs, Ohio, had been so busy turning undergraduates into vessels of liberalism and apostles of social improvement that it had not found time for the tiresome task of teaching them tedious facts, such as that the rebels in Spain were Franco's fascists…"

You're not still trying to justify the war Shakey? there's only you and Teribus left now that Blair and his cabinet have "jumped ship"

Don't try to say that I support I.F. Teribus will tell you I have been "ranting on about it" for years.

Someday you are going to have to accept that the attack on Iraq was the most stupid and dangerous action in half a century.
I say hundreds of thousands of lives lost for "fuck all", if you disagree with my opinion or my language please tell me why we are there, losing young lives daily. What are we achieving? other than assisting in the formation of a radical Islamic Republic.

I'm not saying you're a fascist, just a supporter of totalitarian ideas.

Blair won three elections for the Labour party, one after Iraq.

The "hundreds of thousands" of lives lost have been mostly muslims by the hand of muslims. They exploded a bomb in a crowd of football fans today.

There will be no new caliphate, enough people are awake even if you're not. Iran will fall and the murderous homophobic, mysogonist clerics will run into the caves where they belong.

This man understands


Just look at the gang that strove to prevent the United Nations from enforcing its library of resolutions on Saddam Hussein. Where are they now? Gerhard Schroeder, ex-chancellor of Germany, has gone straight to work for a Russian oil-and-gas consortium. Vladimir Putin, master of such consortia and their manipulation, is undisguised in his thirst to re-establish a one-party state. Jacques Chirac, who only avoided prosecution for corruption by getting himself immunized by re-election (and who had Saddam's sons as his personal guests while in office, and built Saddam Hussein a nuclear reactor while knowing what he wanted it for), is now undergoing some unpleasant interviews with the Paris police. So is his cynical understudy Dominique de Villepin, once the glamour-boy of the "European" school of diplomacy without force. What a crew! Galloway is the most sordid of this group because he managed to be a pimp for, as well as a prostitute of, one of the foulest dictatorships of modern times. But the taint of collusion and corruption extends much further than his pathetic figure, and one day, slowly but surely, we shall find out the whole disgusting thing.

"GG is a dangerous bastard" says anon Guest.

Yes ,I suppose there is a lot of truth in that.I would add the word brave too.
Remember he was thrown out of the Labour Part for opposing the war in the most outspoken way and for calling on British troops to disobey illegal orders which in the light of Abu Ghraib,the beating to death in British military captivity of the Basra receptionist and the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Iraqi civilians in the mess that is Iraq was a timely reminder.
He has been a leading figure in the Stop The War Coalition which mobilised over a million to try to block the invasion and is a constant reminder that Blair dragged this country into war against the wishes of its citizens.
GG also helped form the anti war Respect Coalition and overturned a massive Labour majority to win his seat.This was the first time in decades that Labour has been beaten by an explicitly left wing opponent.
Yes GG is a threat to New Labour ,a standing reproach to those gutless cowards who led this country to war and who are now trying to cover their pro war tracks. As GG said "they were like a shiver in search of a spine to run up."

I read quite well, and from what I have read, I have formed the purely selfish view that Islamic Fundamentalism is much more of a danger to us than Saddam ever was.

So why did we assist the fundamentalists by making war on Iraq?

George was right all along, despite being villified by the so called Labour Party   they chose to follow Blair because they thought he would make and keep them electible, but in the end they had to push him "over the side" when the public became sickened.

"Blair went when he wanted to,"

For Christ sake!! he had to be dragged from office. he wanted to "serve" a full third term. He still clung to the forlorn hope that something would "turn up" in Iraq to stop the bloodbath becoming his legacy.   Some Hopes!! the British public, with the exception of a couple of pea-brains on Mudcat, now see Blair and his cowardly supporters as the hypocritical scum that they really are

Blairs real "legacy" is to be seen as the man who initialised the break-up of the UK. Anti-Blair sentiment in Scotland has led to the first Scottish Nationalist administration, and further SNP support in the next General Election will see Labour lose their Scottish "heartland".....Well done Mr Blair.......Ake

I suspect its a sensual thing. When Galloway starts talking - its like a stranger of the wrong sex putting their hand on my knee in a darkened cinema.

If you respond to someone, fair enough. I don't like these people who pretend that to be left of the tories requires some huge volte face - eschewing the American alliance, tax breaks for glue sniffers and feminist comedians, and the dismantling of the armed forces. But they've been too bloody successful at keeping the tories in power in the past.

God knows, I understand those who see these people as the great white hope. I was brought up by Quakers, was taken to speeches by Philip Noel Baker when I was a kid, and we took Peace News.

Neither of us are idiots. Just different things float our boat.

I've lived pretty much as low as this society allows an intelligent person without a heroin problem. Since my wife got disabled I subsisted for most of my working life on half an income, and anything else I could scrape together. New Labour may seem as bad as the tories to you, but its not - if you're on the bottom rung of society.

You have to live that to understand that. Just like when I say I'm not keen on the Cecil Sharp version of folk music, with its ghastly middle class agenda. I've just seen too much talent rejected and too much mediocrity applauded.

I think Galloway is a cabaret act for middle class lefties. You like him, I don't.

Neither of us are idiots - we just don't agree.

The game is heavily weighted in favour of the powerful and it take enormous self-belief to stand ones ground. George Galloway has put his career on the line more times than I can remember.
He's a rebel and always will be while the Labour Party has grown fat and lasy, slimy and slippery.

George Galloway has put his career on the line more times than I can remember.

  • When he supported murdering the British PM
  • When he took money from Saddam
  • When he allied himself with the clerical fascists
  • When he excuses Stalin

You can probably supply more examples ake, it's your world.
You don't have to worry about the state of the labour party, it's a democratic organisation, being a failed revolutionary (Freedom for Tooting), you will never understand it.

I understand it's difficult when what you've believed in all your life is shown to be corrupt and is defeated; here's some advice, Join the greens and get back to nature or get a hobby. Politics is obviously not your strong point is it dear boy.

Crazyhorse,
I think you are wrong on most counts here
1 GG did not ,and has not supported the murder of the Prime Minister.Don't believe everything the yellow press says about him and be warned he has never lost a libel case!

2 He has never taken money from Saddam.
Are you confusing him with a certain Mrs Thatcher which extended to Saddam over a billion in war credits.He got the British made arms but never paid for them.The arms companies were then paid by the poor long suffering British taxpayer.

3 He has not allied himself with clerical fascists .In fact he has been physically assaulted by them [and incidentally by orange order thugs .However,GG does not subscribe to the belief being pushed by the yellow press that all muslims are fascists,terrorists oreven fundamentalist.

4 GG ,of course was a Labour Party member for some 30 years and would have looked back to democratic socialists like Nye Bevan for inspiration.If he admired Stalin it would have been because his Red Army tore the guts out of the Nazi War machine to paraphrase Winston Churchill.

Decent people denounce ALL bombers, not forgetting those brave men in their flying machines who murder the innocent in countless numbers, remember no one was counting the Iraqi civilian dead.
Their is no doubt that this murderous invasion of Iraq has been a disaster for the world, and Galloway is letting those Brit poodles know that.

GG is a disgrace to humanity. As I said above, judge him by the company he keeps. One of his biggest supporters, a blog which he references from his site, recently (last week) said:

Where is an Iraqi insurgent when you need him? Where's three or four suicide bombers? I don't mean to glorify terrorism, I simply think the Iraqis should kill these pricks

He was talking about Irish soldiers.

A "Brit"

Poor George Galloway.. is now to be condemned because an unnamed source who is said to be a supporter of GG has apparently written on an unnamed blog some horrible remarks .
Can't you do better than that?? Name that source and let us take a good look at it!

GUEST,crazyhorse,

I followed your link to the Independent which mentions that GG allegedly said what you posted.

Having never heard of GQ Magazine, I took a shufty at their page.




http://www.gq-
magazine.co.uk/?zed


Apparently its a soft porn rag for 'Gentlemen?'


Unfortunately, neither the Independent nor GQ name the interviewer so causing a difficulty to further research this matter.

Since GG has been smeared by the press previously, notably the Telegraph, we've no way of verifying wether his statement has been taken out of context.

Here's the passage from the Independent:

In an interview with GQ magazine, the reporter asked him: "Would the assassination of, say, Tony Blair by a suicide bomber - if there were no other casualties - be justified as revenge for the war on Iraq?"

Mr Galloway replied: "Yes, it would be morally justified. I am not calling for it - but if it happened it would be of a wholly different moral order to the events of 7/7. It would be entirely logical and explicable. And morally equivalent to ordering the deaths of thousands of innocent people in Iraq - as Blair did."

***********************

Read carefully, plenty of opportunity there to twist his words to mean something different to his intention

Scuse my ignorance, I thought there had always been Irishmen in the Brit army. Irish guards, Royal Irish Rifles... that sort of thing.

Ah, but we all know Vin Garbut' homage to Irish soldiers who served in the British army in WW2 "Howard Green" which was my father's wartime regiment! [The Green Howards ].

So, Albert is a member of Respect.

Which side do you come from Albert, the totalitarian left or the clerical fascists, wrt funding you're either a liar or a fool.

What's Respects policy on gays Albert, let's hazard a guess, the biggest donator is an islamist so maybe, well maybe you'd rather not talk about it.

Respect, BNP two sides of the same coin.

Mr Happy, if GG wants to give interviews to soft-porn mags that's his business isn't it.

Look, I understand peoples opposition to the war in Iraq but for goodness sake just because someone agrees with you on that point do not make the mistake in thinking that they believe in other things that you may hold dear.

Respect is tied to MAB which in turn is affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood; these are lunatic people who glorify death and violence.

Of course they'll blame most things on Isreal, but the last thing these people want is a solution in Palestine, ask yourselves who gains with the mess there it's neither, Isreal nor the locals is it.
