Galloway documents faked

An American newspaper has apologised to Glasgow Labour MP George Galloway after alleging that he accepted millions of pounds from Saddam Hussein.
The Christian Science Monitor has admitted that a set of documents upon which it based its story on were "almost certainly" fake.

Mr Galloway has always strenuously denied that he took any money from the Iraqi regime.
Guess the Telegraph will get a new owner.....

If it's true then I'm rather glad to be honest, I always had him down as an MP with the guts to stand up and be counted for what he believed to be right.

Are you on f***ing drugs? The man is a parasite that deserves to be shot, not sanctified.

As I understand it the documents in question were in the hands of a US paper. The ones the Telegraph have are different.

The truth will always out, despite conspiracys in your government

Elsewhere you will have read about dirty tricks by certain Military Intelligence services.

May I start by totally denying any officially sanctioned link between my organisation and any Labour politician.  In new the climate of openness in free Iraq such underhand dealings will not be tolerated!  
how does this work in your country???

Galloway sues the Telegraph

George Galloway has issued libel proceedings against a newspaper over claims he accepted money from Saddam Hussein.
The Glasgow Labour MP is taking action against the Daily Telegraph.

The newspaper's editor, Charles Moore, said it will defend the action, standing by its allegation that Mr Galloway took a cut of oil money worth at least £375,000 a year.

The claim against Telegraph Group Ltd, the newspaper's publisher, is for damages and an injunction to refrain further publication of specific allegations or any similar defamatory allegation of or concerning Mr Galloway
Yes  I think he's a fool and a motormouth and at best misguided in the causes he supports, almost as if he wants to be deliberately contrary , but there is something quintessentially British, about the little man taking on the might of a hostile entity.

So get in there George, the Telegraph will be a bloody interesting read when you own it -lololololol

Part time Pongo,

Always enjoy seeing a member of our esteemed press (hopefully) getting its comeuppance and Galloway may appear to some as "quintessentially British, a little man taking on the might of a hostile entity."  

Still thinks he's a knob, though.

Gorgeous George may still have a problem, though. The expert who confirmed that the documents used by the Christian Science Monitor were fakes has apparently also looked at the documents used by the Telegraph, and has said that they look pretty bona fide to him. ..


Since the source for this was the Telegraph, we'll have to see - but their tone is just so smug that either a) the paper is turning into the Guardian or b) they have some additional bits of evidence that their QC will wheel out at the libel hearing...

Galloway is an MP so therefore a leach, yes he speaks out but is he,will he be premiere, no, for we all know that he is after is the limelight, like all of them, and yes you could say this is stereotyping (i am using two fingers) but if he was a "good un" there is no way he would have ended up on that unmentionable tv thing wearing those fairy tights he is obviously so fond of, so just another gobby jock going knowhere (next PM? probably)

It's safe to say PTP, that there is a lot of top cover between those who decide to publish, and those who live in castles. I also wonder who would fund any ongoing action from Galloway?

Go along with comments about him standing up to the establishment, but the media whore in him (think Rula Lenska and her pussy) is sickening.

(and Rula Lenska dropped off the teenage dream memory recall, pretty damn quick too). :)

It took 5 years to think of that reply?

I have difficulty keeping track of time thankyouverymuch, since I left the brotherhood I have been sitting on my arrse pondering all of the great questions put to man, namely - should I have another brew or just get on with re-heating the beans (and no I can not do both as my cooker only holds one hexy block at a time) This was posted today and I do not care to look at dates as it reminds me how long it has been since I left the mob.

Fcuk knows how I got hold of the post 5years late but yes it take that long nowadays for me to think of replies..........
sorry for wasting bandwidth, I do not keep up with the media as they do not report anything that does not include chav/celeb, and I get all of my current affairs from ARRSE.

Whilst I have nothing against individuals (politicians, liberated apparatchiks, citizens and so on..) standing up for their views. I cannot stand George Galloway, a repugnant cigar chomping smarmy weasel who at best is an opportunist guttersnipe. We saw evidence of this as his Respect initiative has imploded. Look no further than Big Brother to see what sort of character he is.

Well Rumpel Stiltskin, just to bring you up to date. We beat the Germans again. There was a 'cold war' with Russia for a while. Sh*t kicked off in Northern Ireland in the late 60's but that's over. We've had a woman Prime Minister. Decimal currency came in around 1971, so you'll not get a good suit for 5 Guineas. Those strange accents you hear around you are Polish not German.
