There are only a handful of true patriots in the British political system. A smattering of voices who stand up and are counted while the population drives to work in blood oil and consumes itself silly at the expense of other parts of the world. George Galloway was smeared by the press as he stood up to a U.S. Congressional Committee regarding the invasion of Iraq. Well we all know he was right now but mainstream media isn't obliged to apologise because it does what it is told. George is no longer a voice in politics but he is a political voice and you ignore the uncomfortable truth at your own peril. More later after I've listened to them and parsed the marmalade for you. So to speak.
