Hi,
I did not know that Big Brother had started..... Ill may probably watch a few of the programs at the beginning, to see how the house looks but will be in no danger of getting addicted to the show.......touch wood.

George Galloway? Is this a joke? The fact he's a serving MP not withstanding, he'll merely showboat the entire time. He'll blame Bush, Blair and the Israelis for everything within 24 hours, and be generally insufferable.

His constituents were pretty dim to elect him in the first place, wonder how they feel now he's "representing" their views and opinion in, uh, the Big Brother house?

Thumbs up to George Galloway though; I can hear it now ..... 'I DO NOT HAVE OIL FIRED HEATING'!!!!!

As for Michael Barrymore, apparently, police have said they'll arrest him if he even dares to mention the floating corpse in his pool! UK TV at it's best - NOT!

I think it'll be the C4 executives, rather than the police, that would get pissed off if anything were said. It would open them up to all sorts of litigation. The police would have charged Barrymore, if they could. The fact they haven't tells you all you need to know about any evidence against him.

What has he done for his constituents? in Bethnal Green and Bow? In fact, what has he EVER done for his constituents? When he's not off swanning around in Pakistan launching controversial newspapers, or meeting with Saddam Hussein - a man who even I as a pretty left-wing liberal think is a mass murderer - he's not exactly helping his constituents!

He uses his oratory skills, and exploits vunerable constituencies to express his own opinions, which seldom match with theirs. He didn't attend a constituency meeting for an entire year during 1989/1990!

The idea that he 'fights' for the people who elected his is nonsense. He ruined Dundee City Council by raising rates to from 12p in the pound to 45p in the pound. He abused the important tradition of twinning cities, and twinned the city with Nablus, after raising the Palestinian flag over the town hall. The residents of Dundee at the time one would think would have been happier with reducing poverty and unemployment.

He was elected on an anti-war platform, but he didn't even attend the Report Stage of the Terrorism bill in November 2005! This despite his party urging him to attend. Given the government won with a majority of one, the one man show in Cork he put on that night shows just how little he cares about the people who elected him.

The best, and most enlightening Galloway quote (from the Granuiad), is this.

"I am on the anti-imperialist 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. If there was a Soviet Union today, we would not be having this conversation about plunging into a new war in the Middle East, and the US would not be rampaging around the globe."

His views have got more extreme, if anything in recent years.

Remember his ideas on Pakistan? 'Democracy is a means, not an end in itself'?

So while his enthusiasm and oratory skill may be a benefit to British politics, his views aren't accepted by the general population. He gets elected on propaganda, and exploits racial tension for his own selfish ends. His views are extreme. He seldom helps his constituents, as shown by this - he could spend up to a month away from the people he vowed to help.

Given that the Labour Party won the election, it's clear his views are not widespread. Just how much of the population voted for an anti-war party? I was against the war on Iraq, but the election showed pretty clearly that the general population do not consider it an important issue.

Is it maybe his disdain of democracy you agree with? What about his support of the Soviets? Pakistani military coups? Support of Saddam Hussein?

he's worked wonders for me I can tell you. How many of the people that were at the stop the war protests were teenagers? George is exactly what British politics needs. And he speaks out for the younger population. With all the people watching this who are of that age that will be against the war. I would hope they would all form around him. He has gone in there to rally people around him and around his cause. Rather than all the speak your weight machines in parliament he his an m.p that the real population can relate to.

If you want to know. I admire his bollocks, his indefatigability, his skills talent and charisma. That he takes no shite from anyone. His ability to wade through the shite spun by other politicians. His individuality. All of which have been emphasized by seeing him on TV, going to his speaking tour and having the honor of meeting him in person, reading his books. And no doubt again even more by seeing him on big brother.

Truly great man. And I have decided to add an homage to him in my profile  Smile

Garry2880, yeah some people consider him a 'great man' (not least himself), but then so did many about Oswald Mosely.

What a guy, what a party, Islamic crackpots and the remains of the old, extreme, far left (the Trots have suddenly forgotten their atheism).

Unseating a good MP, who actually believes in Civil Rights, the American half of her family lived it.
Not like the posing, perma-tanned, jump on any bandwagon Galloway.
All done in a campaign with lots of anti-semitism.
What a guy.

Galloway however panders to bathist, highly brutal regimes, supported the USSR which killed many times more the Hitler or Mao managed, in purely political crimes, (not counting fighting Germany), which enslaved, with force, half of Europe for over 40 years.
Wow, isn't George the 'peoples man'?

I'd pay to see Galloway make a pro USSR speech in Poland or any former Warsaw Pact nation, he never would though, values his skin too much and only really preaches to the converted, gullible, resentful and foolish.

Called for attacks on British troops too, never mind the US (and yes, we enjoyed his performances in the US, because both sides there almost deserved each other and they are not used to invective), but still, he should be done for treason.

It will end in tears in the East End, everywhere he has gone he has disappointed, alienated, let down his constituency.

A sordid, brain dead, pandering, cheap, low rent show like BB, is actually the perfect place for him.

Feel better does not come into it, want to answer my points or anyone else's, about this most discredited politician by any chance?
Something beyond slogans, or crude invective?
Something that Galloway hates doing too as it happens.

I just find it shocking that such a transparent, ego-manic, a supporter of some of the scum of the Earth dictators, (Galloway's hatred of Western democracy does not stop him occasionally turning up to Parliament and getting that wage), has any kind of following.

In truth however, Respect, (the BNP of the far left/Islamic militants), is his ego vehicle, nothing more.
Very small, a fluke of the times, but what will happen first?
Will Galloway get bored with Respect first, or will they, as some are probably doing now, get sick of his showboating before then?
They've been duped by him, not the first to do so either.

For people whose worldview is informed by stuff like BB and little else, Galloway is the perfect choice.

hardly. That twat killroy silk also started/joined UKIP around the same time as respect formed. Galloway, or some tanned tit that goes around the streets asking Muslim people when they are going home. Which one now holds the record for the most events that he has spoken at. I cant remember the exact number he said but his appearance at the Aberdeen music hall was about his 1,200th speaking engagement? Pulling crowds nearing their thousands each time people paying their hard earned money to hear someone who has the bollocks to tell the world what he thinks, what i think what his audiences think. name 1 other politician in west minister who could get that kind of response from the general public? We had Americans, Muslims, old, young, middle age all attending his speech, all those people not only in Aberdeen but in the thousands of locations that he has spoken at they were all ''converted, gullible, resentful and foolish.'' you think David Davis would get about 970 odd people to pay £10 each to listen to him for 2 hours? Who can speak for 30-40 minutes on end in detail to any question fired at him in random from the audience, any other politician would be scared shitless at the prospect of a full auditorium being able to ask them any question.

It would be easy actually, 'George, you seem to hate democracy when it does not follow your politics, you hang around rather a lot with dictators, what are you doing in Parliament?'
'George, what is an old style Socialist doing going around money grubbing, boasting about his wealth, not turning up for a chance to help defeat Blair in Parliament, being too busy coining it in and ego pandering'.

Of course he'd do what he always does, throw insults and clear off.

The more I think about it, the more I think the comparison to Mosley is spot on, if from the opposite extreme of the political spectrum.
Both made it very uncomfortable to be Jewish in East London when they were around.
Both were bandwagon leaping demagogues, driven by ego.

You've implied your in the media Gary2880?
So, why not use your communication skills to defend Galloway's liking of the despotic USSR? (While sitting pretty in the West?)

His kissing of Saddam's arse (of a man who killed more Muslims in the last few decades than anyone else, by a mile).
Don't see him supporting the unfortunates in Sudan, explain that?
(Clue; he cannot blame the UK and US for it).

go and ask him then. Put your money where your mouth is and see how quickly he 'clears off'. To suggest Galloway does not stand his ground is one of the most ridiculous things I have seen posted. need i remind you that he stood his ground for so long at the G8 he was picked up by police and dragged off for what he belives in? for someone that you claim is just out to boost his ego he sure as hell puts a lot of effort into it. And you say that Blair argues with passion? he wouldnt know passion if it came up and bit him in the arse. George is the one that jumps on the band wagon?

Well, you seem easily impressed, seem to stop your critical faculties beyond crude slogan's, prefer faux 'passion' despite the highly suspect, often contradictory mouth it comes from.

At least Blair was, at the G8, trying to do something for the 3rd world, the real world is more complex and difficult than on planet Galloway, obsessed as he is with ego.
What did Galloway do for the 3rd World, oh yes, screwed up the charity 'War On Want' when he was involved with it.

If you feel he is soooo great, like, he's so passionate man, defend his support for dictators.
Fancy ever living in the USSR, Saddam's Iraq?
Hey, neither was he.

You can't defend him can you? Spoil the simplistic Galloway line too much?
Might expose what a total fraud he is?

Respect - an antidote for thinking, extreme left wingers and religious fanatics preferred, high levels of gullibility for anyone else.

I have defended him enough. And explained why he has my respect and how he is my role model. More than I will ever respect the jackal and the jackass. If that is not good enough for you. Just tough really isn't it.

Galloway hated Saddam. And in turn as we all know Saddam hated Galloway. Galloway was in Iraq trying to avoid a war, a hard concept to grasp for people that are on blairs side I understand. I suggest you read 'Mr Galloway goes to Washington' not easy to trace but possible through some Amazon outlets.

I'm sure he will defend his stance that Fidel Castro is his hero in his up coming book about Fidel. Maybe you should read that to find your answers about his support for communist leaders?

If you believe blairs passion is real and galloways is 'faux'...it is just a shame that so many people have fallen for blairs bull. A man who stands by the side of the road waiting for the next band wagon to jump on.

I will finish as I started. George Galloway is a Great man. He is my hero and you despise him and me after some of your insulting sweeping inaccurate statements. This argument will go no where fast neither of us will be backing down any time soon. And if you go to one of his tours you may be able to give him a run for his money who knows, but he has seen off plenty of people in the past, no doubt will in the future. I am going to call it a night,. I have little more energy to waste on the matter.

Gary2880, the problem is you keep on calling Galloway a great man, yet ignore important points about him.

As GDB has said, he's supported the USSR, a regime that killed millions - more than Hitler. He support Saddam, someone who killed more Muslims than the US and UK ever have. He pretty much destroyed Dundee City Council, and instead of bothering to clean up domestic issues, he twined the city with Nablus. He funded a newspaper in Pakistan that support the military coup - an went on to say that democracy isn't an ends, it's a means - consequently implying that military revolution over democracy is acceptable. His anti-semetism is only tolerated because he spins his points into vaguely acceptable rhetoric.

Do you agree with any of those points? We're not asking you to defend Galloway, we're asking if you agree with the far-left and pretty vile ideas he has. Surely you should, given how great you think he is.

I don't feel the need to defend Galloway. These are the points by which I admire him as I have stated earlier. There is no other politician that even comes close to pandering for my needs like Galloway does.

If you want to know. I admire his bollocks, his indefatigability, his skills talent and charisma. That he takes no shite from anyone. His ability to wade through the shite spun by other politicians. His individuality. All of which have been emphasized by seeing him on TV, going to his speaking tour and having the honor of meeting him in person, reading his books. And no doubt again even more by seeing him on big brother.

we do not have to agree with every single thing our hero's do. But as such most of the time from what I have heard him say I like what I hear through the medium stated above. His views on Palestine, the monarchy, parliament. The common person. I've told you, Galloway did'nt like Saddam and vice versa, but because of all the crap that is spun all you see now is Galloway saying to Saddam 'I admire your indefatigability' no rhyme nor reason as to why he was there. sorry if my replys aren't as 'rar bollocks to the lot of you' as usual, but my cold is taking its toll, my apology's..

im not going to even attempt to defend as you say the points made above. he has 2 books out and has a speaking tour the information is out there. (he has 2 out and i have 3 work that out  boggled  ) i have given my reasons as to why he is my hero. so there we go. can we get off the round-a-bout now.

I didn't ask you to defend him, I asked you whether you agree with him. Answer the question.
