i watched George Galloway defend himself in the US. I must say even though i dont agree with the man's policy's etc it came across he is an excellent politician and public speaker.

Very impressed smile.gif

Mmm not so sure on that myself

I do think they were a bit short sighted allowing him the chance to defend himself on capital hill. This is the highest stage is had given his anti-war speech in their effects to weaken him they have made him stronger

all i am saying is the man is a good public speaker and is a good politician. WHy would you not expect that it doesnt mean i agree with him.

For example i am pretty sure he knew if pal was trading in oil and knew that when he took his money for his election campaign

I think the guy's great! smile.gif I don't agree with everything he says, but I respect him for standing up for what he believes in, even against the US senate! ohmy.gif That did indeed take a lot of balls.....I couldn't do it. It was live on US TV as well! biggrin.gif

Someone has to stand up against the USA about the Iraq war, maybe this could be the start! smile.gif

I watched it, and wasn't overly impressed. I mean, he made some good points, and I liked how he kept turning it on them, but he's just not my cup of tea.

He actually reminds me of Nicola Sturgeon (SNP Deputy Leader or something). To me, he comes across as just playing a part, like his way of speaking is 'put on' and he's trying to hard. I might not have explained that very well, but next time you hear Nicola Sturgeon, you'll proably catch my drift biggrin.gif

I know what you mean George.
1. Its a fake accent
2. He uses too many hand movements
3. He uses too many long words... even for me and I like English
I mean who ever heard of indigafaticability before he used the word?

I do like the way he stands up for what he believes in and turns things back on the Americans! I do believe the war was wrong. The guy has guts but he's not my cup of tea (or coffee) either! lol

He has got so much character. I read his quotes from BBC News site and they were quite satisfying to read, and he has now been cleared, so he can get on with his life.

I heard the TV interview he had with Jeremy Paxman. I wasn't up that early after the election but I saw it on the BBC's site. That was entertaining as well! i don't understand why Paxman was so annnoyed with the Galloway had taken the seat from one of the few black MP's in Britain. After all, it is all about what you offer and there is no point of having an MP, who doesn't stand up for most people's views, just because she is of an ethnic minority. Isn't Galloways seat just representing the idea of Democracy?

I think the point was that people from all different parties believed Oona King was working hard for her constituency - even George Galloway made a remark to that effect after the result was announced.

Paxman's point was that Galloway had exploited racial tension in the area to take the seat from her. Apparantly a lot of people in the Muslim community there were unhappy with a female MP (from what I heard on the coverage).

I totally agree with you on all you have said George

I do however think that the man has a gift for public speaking. Dare i say it he seems very intelligent and very quick on the up take. He has taken on every major power/powerful man in the planet and has never been caught out. You could see the sub-commitee trying to make him slip up and he could see right through it.

If only he would use his powers for good tongue.gif

I respect Galloway and his leftist stance. I think it is good he is the new MP for Bethnal Green and Bow and I think the argument that he has replaced a black female is largely irrelevent.
The facial expressions of the women behind Galloway were indeed very amusing!

As much as i cant really be doing with George Galloway i have to say he did quite well in America. He didnt get threatened by the "grand" settings of the senate where many other would have. He didnt seem threatened at any point and put his case across in his usual way!
