George Galloway, the anti-war Labour backbencher, received money from Saddam Hussein’s regime for his campaigns, taking a slice of oil earnings worth at least £375,000 a year, according to Iraqi intelligence documents found by The Daily Telegraph in Baghdad. Story here

The slogan “No war – for oil” seems to come to mind. But if this is proven to be true – and it has to be said there is an awful lot of detail in the Telegraph report but Galloway has denied the allegations – then explusion from the Labour Party is likely to be the least of Galloway’s problems. You also have to wonder what else is going to turn up in recently discovered Iraqi intelligence dossiers.

There are a series of links next to the main Telegraph report with copies of the documents plus Galloway’s response.

update: Galloway says he will sue the Telegraph
