Galloway to the Gallows I

Galloway to the Gallows

I remember hearing George Galloway bellow away when I attended the February 15th anti-war protest in Hyde Park (merely as an observer, of course). He said something about how he would rather be eating cheese and reading Sartre on the banks of the Seine than eating popcorn with the born-again, Bible-belting, fundamentalist Crawford crew. Well, it certainly appears that the seemingly perma-tanned George would have ample funds to wile away the hours poring through The Stranger or The Rebel in a sunny cafe in the 7th while munching on Camembert and Brie given that he is alleged to have been on Saddam's payroll to the tune of 375,000 pounds/annum (over $560,000).

When the Guardian is running copy like this you wonder if the game might just be up for Mr. Galloway (currently writing a book on Iraq in Portugal!)

Here's the original scoop from the Daily Telegraph. I trust most Labourites want to get rid of Mr. Galloway in a hurry--save the left wing of the Party. Yet his libel action might delay such moves for his expulsion. Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, Geoff Hoon and Jack Straw's approval ratings are bouncing up post war in Iraq.

UPDATE: A handy Galloway guide in the Guardian. And too, the view from right of center tabloid land.
