George Galloway

Has anyone just seen the Galloway interview on ITN, I thought he was awful. He came across IMHO as an arrogant liar. He wouldn't answer any question at all. What a waste of rations. I wonder how few votes he'll get on the day?

It is hard to think of a better example of an arrsehole than mister galloway. Except when David Bowie didnt let me on stage to help him along with '5 Years'. Now that would be a good song to have when these twa*s get back in power.

Well, what about that professional Arab winning? He has got rid of a B Liar babe who would seem to have had a lot going for her. Foreign sounding name, black, female, Socialist. What more? Maybe a bit of a dark side as a bean flicker, a minor disability and a liking for whale singing would have helped. Instead they get someone who has split the Muslim vote and reduced their power. And this is democracy?

Well, from the line up on stage at the end, it looked like he was the only native Brit there. Can't blame him for finding a niche in which to park his bum. Whether he's a good constituency MP is what'll matter there as he won't have any effect on national issues.

I've seen, here and elsewhere, the accusation against this character that he's 'racist'. Looking at his website (http://www.respectcoalition.org/), it's quite clear that he's both extreme left-wing and barking, but I can't find anything which would deserve him the 'racist' label anywhere. Blatant exploitation of the races and cultures of his constituents is obvious, but that's a different thing. Here's his stance on 'International' issues, from that site:

Conference notes:

• That the defeat of the US led occupation of Iraq is critical if the global economic and political offensive begun by the US state and its allies at the time of the first Gulf War is to be defeated.
• That the resistance in Iraq is engaged in a battle to liberate the country. That resistance is composed of elements which are Islamic, nationalist and socialist. It is a national liberation movement.
• That the anti-war movement has a crucial role to play in forcing the imperialist governments to leave Iraq.
• That while 71 percent of the British people want a date to be set for the withdrawal of troops from Iraq only 14 percent of delegates to the Labour Party conference voted for such a resolution.
• The Labour government, the Liberal Democrats and the Conservative Party all support the continued military occupation of Iraq.
• That Islamophobia is central to the ideology of war in this era.
• That attacks on civil liberties are the inevitable domestic counterpart of the "war on terror".
• That much older questions of self-determination, for instance for Palestinians, Kurds and Kashmiris, are now bound up with the struggle against the new imperialism.

Conference believes:

• The British and US led occupation of Iraq should end and that the troops should be brought home immediately.
• That the Iraqi resistance deserves the support of the international anti-war movement.
• In national self-determination for oppressed peoples, specifically for Iraqis, Palestinians, Kurds and Kashmiris.
Scary stuff, especially if you're a constituent and serving. I can't find, either, any coherent Defence policy other than:

It supports the policies .... for an increase in public services that meet the needs of lesbians, gay men bisexuals and transgendered people, rather than money wasted on war.
I suppose the scariest thing is that he won the vote, with 15,800 tallies.

It reads like the worst example of 1980's Student Union "Dave Spartism" you could think of.

People actually voted for this shite???
Words fail me
