Bradford Brewery versus Galloway

To paraphrase George Orwell in another context: I’m not much of a drinker, but in this instance I do not have to ask myself which side I am on.
@BradfordBrewery well then, I shall return to this matter after the election. You have been most unwise

I beg to differ

Israeli Defence Minister just announced Israel will join the US-Saudi attack on Yemen. You couldn't make this up…
— George Galloway (@georgegalloway) March 26, 2015

Yes, you could, George. In fact you just did.

Update: I finally understand what Twitter is good for.

Where the burden lies

Now that George Galloway is having something of a meltdown over accusations of antisemtism, I want to make some observations which I’ve made before.
Criticism, even the most scathing criticism, of the Israeli government or its actions is not by itself antisemitic.
But according to Hannah Rosenthal, the US State Department’s Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat [...]

More male Republican politicians say stupid things about rape

Even after the 2012 fiascoes in Missouri and Indiana, it seems some male Republican politicians still haven’t learned to keep their mouths shut on the subject of rape. When they do open their mouths about it, there’s a good chance something stupid and/or offensive will emerge.

A West Virginia lawmaker has apologized for saying that while [...]

Galloway on Question Time

When it was first announced that George Galloway would be on the panel when Question Time was broadcast from Finchley, Gene suggested that he should be forced to share a platform with Eylon Aslan-Levy (the Israeli he’d refused to debate at Oxford).    In the event,  Jonathan Freedland was selected to offer some (liberal) Zionist balance.
