The Galloway Quiz

I can’t resist posting David Aaronovitch’s quiz from the Guardian today. If any Harry’s Place reader fails to get full marks then you are in detention with a copy of ‘I’m Not the Only One’ for every night this week:

1 Who said recently, “The Iraqi resistance isn’t just defending Iraq. It is defending Syria, Lebanon and Iran and all Arab states.” Was it:

a) The leader of Syria

b) The leader of Lebanon

c) The leader of Iran

d) George Galloway

2 Who wrote of Saddam Hussein: “He is likely to have been the leader in history who came closest to creating a truly Iraqi national identity, and he developed Iraq and the living, health, social and education standards of his own people.” Was it:

a) Saddam Hussein, in his autobiography

b) Uday Hussein, in his autobiography

c) Qusay Hussein, in his autobiography

d) George Galloway, in his autobiography.

3 Who used these words to Saddam Hussein, when meeting with him in the 1990s: “I want you to know that we are with you hatta al-nasr, hatta al-nasr, hatta al-Quds. [until victory, until victory, until Jerusalem].” Was it:

a) An obsequious Jordanian

b) A terrified Kurd

c) A sensible Iraqi

d) A tanned Scot

4 Odd one out. According to his lawyer, Saddam Hussein recently requested that his personal regards be sent to three people. Which of these was NOT one of the three? Was it:

a) US lawyer, Ramsey Clark

b) Former PM of Malaysia Mahathir Mohammed

c) British MP, George Galloway

d) Socialite Tara Palmer-Tomkinson.

5 And finally, who once averred that: “In fact I am not a homosexual, never have been and actually have never met an Arab homosexual.” Was this man:

a) Lawrence Durrell

b) Lawrence of Arabia

c) Sir Richard Burton

d) George Galloway

Fairly simple, really. The answer – of course – is d in all cases.

Galloway’s quiz from last week which prompted the above is here. Oddly for Galloway, three of the five questions he chose were about himself.
