Go George!

Anyone who didn't see George Galloway giving evidence to the US senate, you're in for a treat. Take the phone off the hook, make yourself a nice cup of tea, put your feet up and click here on this link. Now go to the video section. Its a long piece - 47 minutes, and the first ten or so are kinda slow as the senators present their accusations, you can skip that if you like. Its a pure joy though once Galloway gets going. Even the most right-wing nutters would have to admit he really made them look like the bunch of nasty idiots they are.

What a stellar performance! Made me proud to be of Scottish ancestry.

If Galloway is indicative of the quality of politician on your side of the pond, I think we Yanks maybe ought to rethink the whole independance thing.

A brilliant demonstration of what dullards, reprobates and thieves we have in our legislature.

Glad you enjoyed it as much as I did. Sadly politicians like Galloway are as rare here as they are elsewhere. I think Kofi Annan and Nelson Mandela can be that cool sometimes but otherwise its difficult. The Dalai Lama has his moments - remember when he said that war was an outdated method of resolving international conflicts? I liked that.
