Having apparently ended his long-running weekly program “The Real Deal” on Iran’s state-controlled Press TV, Bradford West MP George Galloway (along with his fourth wife Gayatri) has launched “Sputnik.” Yes, that’s really the name of his latest TV venture, a weekly program on Russia’s state-controlled RT network.
A recent show featured an excruciating interview with Keith Bennett, whom Galloway called “Britain’s foremost China and North Korea expert” and claimed that the two of them were responsible for the UK establishing diplomatic relations with North Korea.
Bennett, as is obvious from the interview, is an uncritical enthusiast for what is likely the most repressive regime on the planet. He is a member of the openly-Stalinist Communist Party of Great Britain (Marxist-Leninist) and chairman of the [North] Korea Friendship and Solidarity Campaign of Britain, which annually celebrates the founding of the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea and pays tribute to whichever Kim happens to be in power.
Galloway took the opportunity to ask Bennett about the hundreds of thousands of North Koreans incarcerated in horrific prison camps, where succeeding generations are punished for the “crimes” of their parents.
Ha ha. Just kidding.
In fact Galloway concluded the interview by suggesting that he and Bennett and his “good friend” Dennis Rodman visit Pyongyang together– where, he said, “We’ll have a whale of a time.”
Unfortunately that’s no joke.
