Egypt,  Galloway

A Ghastly Orange Spiv Endorses British Imperialism

Well, it is the only explanation for George Galloway’s wistful prediction that, with Mubarak gone, he is to be permitted access to Egypt “in the words of [my] passport, without let or hindrance”.

Then as we all know our Dod to enjoy, he goes on to recollect meeting someone famous:

For more than 25 years, I was at the side of Benazir Bhutto, the assassinated leader of Pakistan. She went into exile after the judicial murder of her father by a westernbacked dictator. I received her at the airport and was part of her escort.

When those bullets fired in a Rawalpindi park entered her head, I was physically sick. I took to my bed for the rest of the day.

Update: Elsewhere in the Daily Record article, Gabbleway expresses satisfaction that a Pakistani anti-terrorism court has issued an arrest warrant for a former military leader of Pakistan, Pervez Musharaf in connexion to Bhutto’s assassination.

But, wait! In the comments, DaveM reminds us of Gabbleway’s thoughts on Musharaf’s seizure of power in 1999. Then, he considered Musharaf to be “an upright sort” (what, I say, time for tiffin, old chap) because “in poor third world countries like Pakistan, politics is too important to be left to petty squabbling politician. Only the armed forces can really be counted on to hold such a country together”.

It is an Israeli site, it is a mistranslation! Oh, it is Workers’ Liberty and in English. What a cockweasel.
