George Galloway on Al-Jazeera earlier this week:
You know, I don’t want to embarrass any particular Arab ruler, but once I spoke to a prince. I told him there were three British newspapers on sale for 100 million pounds – The Daily Express, The Sunday Express, and The Daily Star. Three important newspapers. “Why don’t you buy them,” I said. “You could make a foothold for a decent point of view on the Arab world, if you were to buy these newspapers.” He could have bought them, but he didn’t have the courage to buy them. He’d rather spend the money on other things.
You know, in London, there is enough money thrown onto the roulette tables of London’s casinos by Arabs, which could buy media in America and Britain, and transform the landscape. But I tell you, the good news is this: In the desert, just a few drops of water can transform the landscape. All we need is a few drops of water, because the American and British people have no faith, no trust, in their leaders. They know that the policy of their leaders is leading them to disaster.
We need to intelligently apply the resources that we have, and people can contact me, to my e-mail, through my website, georgegalloway.com. I have many ideas on how we can do this. I just don’t have any money.
The transcript is here including Galloway’s rather disturbing obession with sexual-explotation analogies.
George Galloway illustrates the nature of the ‘special relationship’.
