Oil of Uday

I’m sure there’s a perfectly reasonable explanation….

A US Senate report says two senior politicians from the UK and France were granted potentially lucrative oil allocations by Saddam Hussein’s Iraq.

It says British MP George Galloway and former French minister Charles Pasqua were given the right to buy oil under the UN’s oil-for-food scheme…

I thought George Galloway’s repsonse to these accusations:

“I have never traded in a barrel of oil,”

was interesting, given the allegation is that he was merely given the opportunity to do so.

Did any of our readers receive similar invitations? I’m anxious to know whether I ought to feel unlucky at having missed out.
