Oh dear. Perhaps the voters were looking for a Tory Policy before they voted for them.

You're having a laugh. The power of the British/American propaganda systems and the right-wing press couldn't prove he took a penny from Hussein, so I doubt a chimpanzee like you can. Go and kill some Iraqis like your pal Tony Blair.

AT least George Galloway opposed the war of Blair and Bush. If we listened to him thousands wouldnt have been killed through our hands.

Oh, and how can New Labour supporters explain their love relationship with Socialist Ken.

Ken hasn't been "red" for a while. Privitising the tube, betraying workers, etc etc. At least he didn't support the war though, credit to him for that. I hope he beats Boris. Paddick was acting like a fool when he said that Ken wasn't the lesser of two evils.

So which of element of the Baathist regime did you admire the most? The gassing of Kurds or the thousands of 'disappeared'?

John is doubtless a spoof, but Galloway was thrown out of the house of commons for likely knowingly having his campaigns funded by Saddam, of course. He also admitted that he wife took direct payments from Saddam.

Anyhow, these election results are worse for Labour than they were under Blair. That shows you how the media manufactored the whole Iraq thing as a 'scandal'.

Why did we allow Blair to leave?

I'd give John Doe's opinions more credence if he had the intelligence to spell properly.

What's Galloway got to do with anything? He has failed to be elected to the GLA. He's history.

This blog is about real politics.

Resisting the illegal imperialist war waged on Iraq by the criminals that you support.

"Galloway was thrown out of the house of commons for likely knowingly having his campaigns funded by Saddam"

No he wasn't. The commission cleared him of all charges. It was a politically motivated attack. Of course the Labourites and Conservatives are going to suspend him if they can, why wouldn't they? Fairness? HA! These are the people who killed a million Iraqis, they have no dignity.

George was thrown out for other reasons, and I would be careful considering how much George likes to use the law to defend his positions and name.

I dont support the former Iraq Regime. But where does our interference without UN approval end? Whos next, iran, Sauid Arabia, North korea?

John Doe appears to say that you can gas Kurds or have thousands of disappeared as long as you preach against the USA.

No, the house of commons commitee was quite clear in their findings that Galloway probably knew that Saddam was funding his campaigns. That was their finding.

He was also thrown out of the chamber for refusing to abide by the speakers rules.

Why are we debating someone of the past like Galloway? Iraq isn't even an issue in this election.

Actually, George was expelled for:

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/3205889.stm

Basically, his political comments about the war where said to have led to breaking labour rules which bans "bringing the Labour Party into disrepute by behaviour that is prejudicial or grossly detrimental to the party".

He was suspended for three weeks for the report, nincumpoop.

Please, take your ignorance else where.

Are you just tired or stupid.
