Uncle George on the wireless

Listening as I was to George Galloway's "Mother of all Talk Shows" on TalkSport last night (loyal fan that I am) two things struck me.

The first was that he clearly and definitively denounced 9/11 and 7/7 conspiracy theories, and in particular singled out the "4000 Jews didn't go to work on 9/11" conspiracy rumour as the racist lie that it is. Jolly good. Shame it was first broadcast on Al-Manar, TV station of Hizbollah, led by Hassan Nasrallah, the chap who George "glorified" in a speech on a recent demonstration. Perhaps that'll get mentioned in next week's show...

The second was that he kept name-checking Harry's Place, which rather suggests that not only does he read it, but that they're getting to him. Perchance those Eustonite bloggers are more effective than some of us had thought?

Galloway strangely claimed that he "has no money".
Has he lost his bank statements again?

It's a real struggle on an MP's salary, book royalties and speaking tour revenues these days, I'll have you know. Especially with all those Havanas to buy. George really isn't much better off than someone on JSA at the end of the week...
