    Galloway’s dancing partner dies

    Tariq Aziz, Iraq’s former foreign minister and deputy prime minister, who loyally provided an urbane facade to Saddam Hussein’s unspeakably brutal regime, has died in hospital at the age of 79. George Galloway once wrote of his experience on “the crowded dance floor of a North African nightclub … dancing with Tariq Aziz, the deputy prime minister of Iraq.” After Aziz was arrested, Galloway called him a “political prisoner” and said: “The obvious fact is that Mr Tariq Aziz is a more respectful man than the people who are holding him now. He is viewed with high esteem worldwide by figures like the Pope in the Vatican and other international…

    Galloway: so long, Blackburn Bradford; hello, London

    And speaking of Georges in no-hope political races: I'm standing for Mayor of London 2016. If you can help in any way, write to me at [email protected] pic.twitter.com/UDX0KMZ2VO — George Galloway (@georgegalloway) May 28, 2015 There’s something pathological about this, isn’t there? Sorry, years of sardonic posts about Galloway have left me depleted. Knock yourself out in the comments.

    Uday, Saddam, Galloway, hyenas, dogs, lions, etc.

    First there was this. Now more evidence emerges that George Galloway’s rhetorical choices have been influenced by the the late unlamented members of the Hussein al-Tikriti family. George Galloway's aphorism after his electoral defeat derives from a poem by Saddam Hussein: https://t.co/wNVMlT7akV pic.twitter.com/9IEjXsC5t4 — Tom Owolade (@owolade14) May 20, 2015

    BREAKING NEWS: #IPSA refers @GeorgeGalloway to @metpoliceuk for alleged public funds abuse:'MPS currently conducting assessment of evidence' — SuedByGalloway (@SuedByGalloway) May 19, 2015 Gene adds: After a hiatus to lose his election, Galloway and his wife Gayatri are back on Russian-propaganda outlet RT with “astute political observers” Seumas Milne and Neil Clark. I don’t have the stomach to watch and find out if he actually mentioned his own defeat.

    George Galloway and Lutfur Rahman

    This is  a guest post by Oliver Williams Tower Hamlets’ disgraced former mayor has no shortage of far-left support. To the mayor’s apologists, to accuse any Muslim of corruption, no matter the evidence, is racist. George Galloway has been among the most vocal, describing the case against the corrupt former- Mayor Lutfur Rahman as a “witch-hunt” and “an anti-democratic, anti-Islamic and racist coup”. Meanwhile, in light of his overwhelming electoral defeat by Labour’s Naz Shah – a Muslim woman of Pakistani origin – he has tweeted: “We’ve begun legal proceedings seeking to have result of the Bradford West election set aside.” According to Galloway, there has been “widespread malpractice”, particularly…

    On hyenas, lions, etc.

    “Let the lions of Iraq rise over the foreign hyenas. Victory will be achieved with help from God and our enemies will face shame and disgrace with help from God, the supporter of the believers.” –George Galloway’s friend Uday Hussein, March 20, 2003 “The hyena can dance on the lion’s grave, but it can never be a lion.” —George Galloway, May 8, 2015 To which we can only respond: And of course: (Hat tip: habibi) Update: And if you think that’s funny: We've begun legal proceedings seeking to have result of the Bfd West election set aside. I cannot therefor discuss my own election for now. — George Galloway (@georgegalloway)…

    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 — George Galloway (@georgegalloway) April 4, 2015 Galloway has a knack for this sort of thing, doesn’t he? Update: Galloway says, “I don’t go to Pubs sorry”. I have no problem with Galloway being a teetotaler, but I assume most pubs serve non-alcoholic beverages. What is he afraid of? He could order a lemonade. In a dirty glass.

    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. (The only thing I can figure out is that Galloway is extrapolating far too much from this.)
