The mother of all fuckwits

Don't you just hate George Galloway? Wouldn't you love to smack him repeatedly round the head with a nine iron? I would. Abhorrent turd of a man. It wouldn't surprise me in the least if he was rubbing his hands with glee after the suicide bombs in London: all the more grist to his little mill. Here's "Gorgeous George" quoted today, on Syrian television:
Two of your beautiful daughters are in the hands of foreigners - Jerusalem and Baghdad. The foreigners are doing to your daughters as they will. The daughters are crying for help and the Arab world is silent. And some of them are collaborating with the rape of these two beautiful Arab daughters.
Well, actually, Baghdad is in the hands of an elected Iraqi government now, whether you like it or not. And let's face it, you don't like it, do you George? Because you no doubt miss your old genocidal chum Saddam Hussein. Bless his cotton socks.

Here's another gem:
It can be said, truly said, that the Iraqi resistance is not just defending Iraq. They are defending all the Arabs and they are defending all the people of the world against American hegemony.
No. The "resistance" is a distinct sect of jihadists who do not represent general opinion at all. Poll after poll after poll shows majority support for a democratic government in Iraq. There's also a sizeable democratic movement in Iran: are they part of America's hegemonic assualt too?

Meanwhile, going back to your reference to Jerusalem: are you saying that Israel has no claim to the city? That the Jews are "foreigners" in that land? I can only summise that this is exactly what you mean. So on top of being a supporter of tyrants, a sympathiser of Islamofascist murderers and an unprincipled, race-baiting thug in elections, you're also an anti-Semite?

Anyone fancy coming along to this so we can fling excrement at him?

Galloway reminds me of Enoch Powell in a way... Of course, Powell was undoubtedly of greater intelligence than Galloway (and most people)... though both are easy to define by one speech and harder to define the more you hear of them.

I don't like Galloway, but he has got balls. So did Powell. Both have made poplulist speeches and distinctly unpopulist speeches (Powell on immingration in the 60s, but a big opponent of nuclear weapons in the 80s).

Mavericks confuse and, to an extent, frighten people, because they can't be put in the old 'soft/hard left, right etc ' box.

He's still a c*nt, though.

Irrespective of whether one agrees with the man or not it seems clear that he has an deep interest in all things Middle Eastern, an interest that appears almost to be a life consuming obsession. In this light how does this give him time to be a good constituency MP. I would have thought that addressing all the problems in his consituency would fill his diary.
Of course other M.Ps have similar outside interests, but we just do not hear about them. Perhaps M.P.s should concentrate more on what we pay them to do, or else we may as go back to the old system where sitting in parliament was just a pass time of the rich.

The Enoch Powell comparison is a good one. Yes, GG has got balls. But unfortunately for us he talks nothing but balls everytime he opens his mouth.

Personally I think he should be deported under the proposed extremist's law. Either that or make a new law to kick narcissistic Stalinists out of the country.

"This is an opportunity for audiences to meet the real me – not the fictional character invented by the media."

I've yet to come across anybody in the media who could portray him as a bigger prick. And as you point out he can't even claim to be MP for baghdad Central anymore either.

Please, sling some mud at him from me and all the other people working for social change in this particular "beautiful daughter": Its not like he even bothers to open his eyes when he visits this region- instead he's far too busy perfecting his Arabic accent and sticking his head up the arse of every tyrant's he meets. Which is just as well, as I guess he wouldn't cope if he came to Jerusalem and saw - gasp- Jews and Arabs cooperating on important issues, trying to build bridges instead of blow them up- Promoting productivity clearly doesn't bode well for him or his re-election prospects.

Do sane people (outside of Syria) actually pay attention to anything he spouts? That is my question...

Thankfully, no, I don't think they do. He's a marginalised politician representing an irrelevant party. He has no credibility in parliament or any of the media (other than the Morning Star or whatever communist shitrag he scribbles for).

ph said...

He won a parlimentary election even with the big guns of the British government ranged against him, so obviously the elctorate (outside Syria) do take notice of him.

Citizen Sane said...

Right. But do you think he would have had the same success if he'd stood in, say, Henley-on-Thames? Of course not. There are probably 2 or 3 areas in the whole country where GG could have scraped through and Bethnal Green was one of them. He did his homework and milked his popularity with Muslims and just about won the seat. Hardly a vindication, and there's no way he'll hold it next time.

ph said...

I agree he did play upon the fact that we live in a country that is becoming culturally ghetto-ised, but he did not create those ghettos, he could thank his opponents for that.

Anonymous said...

I am getting a bit fed up with everyone else but Muslims etc being blamed for ghetto-ising parts of the UK. Everyone has their part to play. There are people who have lived in this country for a number of years without even learning basic English.

Muslim and living in this country? Fine. But accept that this is a western, liberal democracy which will never, ever become anything even close to an Islamic state. That means forced marriages, violence against those former Muslims who reject Islam, and other practices are completely unacceptable.

Multi cultralism has been shown to be the facade that it is, and it is predomiantly the left which msut take the blame.

I'm sorry to disrupt this 'Tory boy' love-in but I feel I must rally to the defence of 'gorgeous George.' It appears to me this is just another case of a right-wing dominated media demonising any dissenting voices on the left. Much of the reporting of Galloway is prejudiced & selective to say the least. His crime: Opportunism? Perhaps. Narcissism? Certainly. Is that really enough to warrant such vitriol from the mass media in this country. Afterall those are two qualities it cannot be said are lacking in any other MP. GG is merely another in a long list which includes Arthur Scargill, Derek Hatton & Ken Livingston. Case in point, you refer to Galloway as a 'Stalinist'. Maybe in the eyes of your average Telegraph reader, but I see very little of the 'tanky'in the wee Glaswegian. Instead I see an old-school Labour man disillusioned by the hijacking of his party at the hands of Islington dwelling, Chardonnay supping Blarites. Like Livingston before him, I applaud Galloway for being a thorn in the side of Blair & 'New Labour' - long may it continue. My highlight of the last election was George's defeat of that Blarite flunkey Oona King in Bethnal Green. Citizen Sane you need some perspective, Galloway represents no threat to the Murdock driven status quo or your comfortable Neo-Liberal, suburban existence. So why the MaCarthyism? Calm down or you'll crease your copy of the Daily Mail.

'Turgenev', may I suggest you read Nick Cohen's article from Sunday's Observer here - it addresses your well written, but nevertheless tired old argument - 'it's the old left against everyone else' isn't it - yeah, right:

And we wonder why Bush won a second term....

... oh, and I love how you describe it as a 'Tory Boy love in' - simply because it doesn't fir your rigid agenda. See above.

Citizen Sane said...

I don't know whether to laugh or cry. Mostly I get accused of being too "liberal" on this blog. Even been called a "communist" a couple of times. Usually by people who sling political epithets without really understanding what they mean.

'Tory boy' love in? Telegraph? Daily Mail? Sorry, not here.

Ironic you should mention the Mail though, as I understand GG writes for their Sunday paper. I guess this is how the "right wing dominated media demonises dissenting voices on the left": by paying them handsomely for a weekly column. According to the Register of Members' Interests, he gets paid £85-£90k per year for this. No doubt he gives it all to charity, principled socialist that he is. More likely he spends it on fine wines and cigars. George Galloway, man of the people.

So what is it you like most about GG anyway? His love of the former totalitarian USSR? His obsequious fawning over despots in the Middle East? His unprincipled race baiting? Or perhaps you just like his lovely moustache?

PH said...

Turgenev, you say "right-wing dominated media", but I am not sure that the British media is dominated so. Of the 4 quality papers 2 are certainly of the left, one is of the right and the other is probably in the middle. So if the papers provide a balance I suppose you must be thinking of that bastion of right wingery - the BBC!!

Ammie said...

The most irritating thing is, he's my local MP. Yet he lives in flipping Glasgow, spends all of his time jetting off around the world and the UK being a twat. What's that all about? What about my local MP? He's just in it for the attention, he fancies himself as a future revolutionary leader, it's never going to happen.

Nice blog by the way!

"Like Livingston before him, I applaud Galloway for being a thorn in the side of Blair & 'New Labour' - long may it continue."

Turgenev, the 'my enemy's enemy is my friend' stance is such a tired old position. Let it go. Perhaps you might have liked to have experienced life under Saddam Hussein? Maybe then you'd know what a real dictator is like. Maybe then you'd know why people like Galloway are deserving of our contempt.

mmm..you lot really fear him, don't you?
the very fact you talk about him is a victory for him.
