GUEST,albert Did George Galloway Get A Fair Hearing (218* d) RE: Did George Galloway Get A Fair Hearing 30 Jul 07


To weelittledrummer,

My reply to you is that there was a line drawn in the sand during the run up to the invasion of Iraq.

Across the world millions marched to oppose the war.In New York for example my daughter joined a march of some 400000 .The march was attacked by the police and penned in.Here in London over a million marched to tell Bush and Blair that the war would be a disaster.With very few exceptions [Robin Cook for example ] the Labour leadership got behind the pro war crowd.

On one side you had the millions opposed to the war and on the other you had the US neocons with their dreams of directly controlling and policing the oil supplies of much of the world.

The neocons were hand in glove with Big Business interests like Halliburton and the usual motley crew of arms dealers ,right wing adventurers and of course in Britain Blairs govt of opportunists and free market chancers.
In my opinion Blair crossed that line in the sand and never recovered his moral authority in this country.Galloway has been attacked,hounded and a concerted attempt has been made to ruin him,an attempt which is ongoing as he is a standing reminder in the heart of Parliament to the war crew, of their disasterous and murderous policy in Iraq.
Albert
