Galloway Beirut

Milk-licking MP George Galloway is going to Beirut for TalkSport, sadly he isn't staying, but you have to feel for the people of Beirut. They've suffered enough.

The loudmouth 'Celebrity Big Brother MP will be making "history this weekend as he holds what is believed to be the first ever radio phone-in live from a war zone".

Errr, well last I heard there was no fighting in Beirut, so really live from somewhere where there was recently some bombing, but that really doesn't sound as catchy nor suit the razzamatazz of the Galloway bandwagon.

The anti-war, friend of many an Arab dictator, who famously said to Saddam Hussein during the first Gulf War: "Sir: I salute your courage, your strength, your indefatigability" and added "hatta al-nasr, hatta al-nasr, hatta al-Quds", which is Arabic for "until victory, until victory, until Jerusalem".

The station is calling him "the most controversial exponent of Middle East politics". Recently there was also talk that he was trying to persuade some sheik to buy the Daily Express so he could expound to us daily.

What that boils down to, of course, is Galloway, who is famously anti-Israeli, saying that "in most people's eyes Israel is a terrorist state" while referring to terror group Hizbollah as a Lebanese national resistance.

He's just the kind of man I would send, one more foghorn in a region where there are already too many foghorns blaring indiscriminately.

I'm going to say it, why oh why do TalkSport employ him? Who wants to hear him lecture listeners with his warped view of the world.

Be sure to tune your dials elsewhere on Saturday and Sunday night.

Gordon, please keep your nose out of politics, which you clearly know little about. Why do you keep laying into Galloway with these cheap shots? Quite honestly, with stuff like 'friend of many an Arab dictator', I hope he sues you.

Want to slag off a politician? Try Mr Blair, a man with the blood of thousands on his hands. Or is that a little too real for you?

Stick to the Love Island piffle.

He is a friend of many Arab dictator - Sadddam, Bashir Assad?

Why should I slag off Blair? He is a three time elected British prime minister who has stands up for democracy and unlike Respect lovers everywhere backed the only truly democratic state in the Middle East Israel.
