|Anti-war MP George Galloway was today facing allegations that a children’s leukaemia charity he set up was used to secretly transfer millions of barrels of Iraqi oil.|
|A US Senate committee said it had uncovered fresh evidence which suggested the former Labour MP received vouchers for millions of barrels of oil from Saddam Hussein.|
|The recently re-elected MP today furiously denied the accusations, describing the committee members as “lickspittle Repubicans” who he claimed were acting for President George Bush.|
|Chairman Norm Coleman also said the committee found evidence suggesting the Mariam Appeal, which Mr Galloway set up to help a four-year-old Iraqi girl suffering from leukaemia, was used to hide the transfer of 3 million barrels of oil.|
|The inquiry into the UN’s oil-for-food programme also heard claims that Mr Galloway and former French interior minister Charles Pasqua accepted oil allocations under the scheme.|
What will it take to lay to rest the idea that the “Old Europeans” have any credibility or legitimacy in what they say about our actions in Iraq? George Galloway is still in Parliament, for crying out loud. And if John Kerry were president today, he’d be having earnest discussions (in French, of course) with the likes of Charles Pasqua.
In the Arab world little girls are abused by their fathers and husbands, while George Galloway is busy abusing them from our end. It would be better for him if he were cast into the sea with a millstone around his neck.
