Whatever Galloway's motives are they are definitely complex.
I used to think Saddam was giving him money but if he did surely there would be lots of proof, and I thought he would go out of the limelight so no-one could get him.
However with Saddam now having NO power and obviously no money he has went MORE high-profile. Even though his political views are the opposite of mine, I strongly bellieve he does actually believe them strongly. That doesn't make them valid, but it does change things. He has always been hard-left.
In his younger days he walked side-by-side with IRA members, for that I have always despised him.
He's smart alright and obviously used front men and the charity to disguise the money.
Yr right he is hard left, but loves money, so far no-one has caught his fingers in the till and he is known to have had some very nasty people around him, when he was an MP in Glasgow. But he may have gone too far this time, by playing on a world stage, local thuggery is no match, against what he is facing now.
I thought todays hearing was a set up and he walked straight into it.
