No surprise, of course. Galloway strongly implied his affection for Stalin in a 2002 interview with The Guardian:
“I am on the anti-imperialist left.” The Stalinist left? “I wouldn’t define it that way because of the pejoratives loaded around it; that would be making a rod for your own back. If you are asking did I support the Soviet Union, yes I did. Yes, I did support the Soviet Union, and I think the disappearance of the Soviet Union is the biggest catastrophe of my life.”
The only difference, it seems, is that Galloway no longer fears the pejoratives.
