George Galloway – The case against war with Iran

War With Iran By George Galloway (Must Watch)

George Galloway has always appeared to inspire a quite remarkable mix of emotions. But whether you admire him, loathe him or lampoon him – never, ever underestimate him. BBC News | Profile: George Galloway

In January 1994, he was shown on television apparently praising Saddam Hussein for his courage, strength and indefatigability.

Mr Galloway insisted he was lauding the people of Iraq – not their leader. Few critics were prepared to make the distinction.

Mr Galloway was expelled from the Labour Party in October 2003 in the wake of his outspoken comments on the Iraq war – comments which Labour chairman Ian McCartney said “incited foreign forces to rise up against British troops”.

Since his expulsion he has become the figurehead for the anti-war party Respect.
