Erm, Hillsborough? Far more to report on than that prat McKenzie, and much more important than this eejit being called something silly.

Have a word with yourself Sunny.

More of this? I’ve never seen a Tory victimised like this on this site.

Our local Baathist supporters may want to consider whether “Look, over there! A Tory!” is the best possible line they can come up with.

Besides, it has always been my prediction that George Galloway would one day join the conservative party.

Heh.

Victimised? I dunno. Some people think when you go into a public debate you’re already in the media game with them. Therefore everything anyone does to you ever from that point is fine. Apparently.

I suppose a full transcript of this meeting,rather than selected Twitter comments by one of your helpers, would be out of the question would it Sunny?

Obsession is the single most wasteful human activity, because with an obsession you keep coming back and back and back to the same question and never get an answer.

Would love to think the people of bradford west are starting to realise that electing an MP who doesn’t bother going to parliament or doing anything for his constituents – but simply uses his state wage to support his egotistical grandstanding – is a mistake.

Sadly though, even if they do, other constituencies will no doubt do the same in future.

@1 – I thought the same but realized its because they are football fans. Not really something a pretentious liberal would concern himself with

Not sure those of us who go to the game on a Saturday afternoon, and have done since well before 1989, need people pretending to speak on our behalf as they seek to defend scrum like Galloway without actually defending him.

LC has no real interest in football, but then, I suspect your interest in this instance is fatuous, which is worse.

Just what is it you want from this whole debacle, Sunny, because I am fucked if I can see it. Dragging corpses through the streets is never a welcome sight. This story must surely be dead now to most people. Galloway made a couple of remarks last week and now and the whole car crash has been played out in excruciating slow motion.

However, just to make sure, we are pulling the whole debacle through the mixer with predictable results. To what ends, Sunny? The biggest fallout to date is that a relatively minor Party, has crashed and burned, leaving many disillusioned people completely disenfranchised and in all probability outside the political process again. Make no mistake the Left have shot themselves in the foot, again, with the type of precision that a sharp shooter blush. Like watching a rerun of the Nineteen Eighties, with the various factions cutting each others throats and dividing and sub dividing to the point even Life of Brian wouldn’t bother with.

What is going to be different this time? Most people have their opinion on Galloway, one way or another. I bet many people have an opinion on what constitutes ‘rape’ one way or another as well.

Do you really expect to win hearts and minds on either subject replaying the same debate over and over. Are you really telling me that out of twenty six current stories that are deemed to be vital to the Left, Galloway is so important that he takes up two of those positions?

@11 I’d say this is a very big deal for the left, especially anyone who wants labour (or the ‘overton window’) to track to the left rather than further right. If Respect’s second coming can come crashing down after just a few short months then there’s serious questions about the politics, institutional setting and tactics of left-of-Labour formations that need to be thought over.

The first thing that comes to mind from this whole episode is ‘don’t involve George Galloway at all because the man is a complete fucking liability’.

Is George Galloway the Editor’s ex, or is there some other reason for this obsession?
