It takes an achingly long time for the British to see a lickspittle of mass murderers for what he is. For years, you jump up and down shouting ‘look at what he’s done!’ All but a handful ignore you. But he’s a character, the rest cry. He’s not like those poll-driven, focus-group–tested on-message politicians, who speak in soundbites. He is passionate about his beliefs.
George Galloway’s firm through which he channelled pay from Iranian TV has been wound up owing £100,000 in tax, The Telegraph can disclose.
Miranda Media Ltd was compulsorily liquidated after HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) took it to court over a debt of £100,284.76.
Mr Galloway, who says the debt “is nothing like that”, set up second firm Molucca Media as action loomed. It has assets of £150,000.
A west London Muslim extremist who travelled to the Middle East on an aid convoy organised by George Galloway has been named as a member of Jihadi John’s gang of masked executioners.
Allexanda Kotey, a Queens Park Rangers fan who grew up just two miles away from Islamic State murderer Mohammed Emwazi, was confirmed by security services as one of four guards responsible for beheading up to 27 hostages.
Muslim convert Kotey was a volunteer aboard the “Viva Palestine” convoy to Gaza organised by Mr Galloway in 2009.
George Galloway has won permission to sue Google over a speech posted online by a loyalist campaigner in Belfast.
In 2014, YouTube footage was broadcast of a loyalist protest, in which Willie Frazer suggested the former Respect MP supported terrorism.
Protests outside the Ulster Hall, where Mr Galloway was speaking, centred on his reference, that year, to Bradford being an Israeli-free area.
Mr Galloway said the loyalist’s remarks constituted a “hate speech”.
On Wednesday, a High Court judge dismissed an attempt to stop Mr Galloway serving libel and harassment proceedings on Google, which owns YouTube, at its US headquarters.
He said: “Accusing an elected politician of being a supporter of terrorism and of the people who are ‘beheading American citizens’ is going to alarm anyone so accused and to cause him distress.”
Respect has dwindled, his mayoral campaign has failed to catch fire, and several groups of investigators are circling…
George Galloway has said he will use his position to rally support for the Palestinian cause if he succeeds in his campaign to become mayor of London.
The Respect Party leader said he would not call for the city to be an “Israel-free zone” as he did in Bradford when he was an MP there.
Controversial former MP George Galloway is to seek election as the next mayor of London.
The Respect Party leader, who has threatened a legal challenge over his general election defeat, declared his bid on Twitter.
Mr Galloway posted a picture of himself sitting on an unmade bed with his young son and the slogan “Dad, you’ve got to do this. I’ve got your back!”.
“I’m standing for Mayor of London 2016,” he added.
He told BBC London 94.9 he would merge the Met Police and the City of London Police if he became mayor.
On 7 May, Mr Galloway lost the Bradford West Commons seat he took from Labour, his former party, in a 2012 by-election.
‘Ebola’ package sent to George Galloway’s office
“Whoever sent it claimed to have been a medic in West Africa who had taken the handkerchief from an Ebola victim, and basically it said it would perish all who open it.”
Supporters of Israel have 3 times assaulted me in 4 months. Now via a Tel Aviv based law firm they are trying to smear me. Confused much?

Former British Parliament member George Galloway, who is known for his virulently anti-Israel views, claimed on Wednesday that he has been repeatedly assaulted by Israel supporters in recent months.
“Supporters of Israel have 3 times assaulted me in 4 months,” he alleged in a Twitter post. “Now via a Tel Aviv based law firm they are trying to smear me. Confused much?”
Galloway said he blames “Tel Aviv lawyers” for an ongoing police investigation into his use of parliamentary funds, a probe that began after his former parliamentary assistant Aisha Ali Khan reported him to the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority (IPSA) earlier this year…
This p.o.s. apparently has over 240K followers. I note from a recent tweet that he has a son called ‘Toren Mustaqim’

George Galloway has said that he has begun legal proceedings to overturn the election result in Bradford West, after he lost by more than 11,000 votes to the Labour candidate, Naz Shah.
Labour called the former Respect MP “pathetic” after he said he was hoping to get Shah debarred as an MP. Galloway accused her of lying about him on Urdu television and of falsely claiming to have been forced into marriage at 15.
Galloway also claims to have uncovered “widespread malpractice” in the battle for Bradford West, including postal voting fraud.
He lost by 11,000 votes…

George Galloway could face an investigation by the Commons expenses watchdog after his former parliamentary secretary claimed that he wasted public money on personal chores.
Aisha Ali-Khan has lodged an official complaint alleging she spent more time on Mr Galloway’s personal errands than she did on parliamentary duties when she worked for the Bradford West MP.
Ms Ali-Khan said she was asked to carry out a list of non-parliamentary tasks during her six months working for Mr Galloway in 2012, including shopping for his underwear and planning his wedding…
As the hustings event became increasingly ill-tempered, Galloway challenged (Naz Shah). Having obtained a copy of the nikah, or Islamic marriage certificate, from Pakistan, Galloway claimed that Shah had not been 15 at the time, as she claimed, but was in fact 16, and that because Shah’s mother was present the marriage cannot have been forced. Labour says that it has a copy of her original certificate that proves she was a minor and have accused Galloway of breaking election rules.
This is the second time in a week that a would-be member of parliament has involved the police after someone on Twitter expressed disapproval. Surprised by this? Don’t be. Britain now has a range of unbelievably capricious “hate speech” and “public order” laws that effectively give anyone who feels offended the power to shut down his critics.
Good old George, the scumbag tried and failed to intimidate an opponent.
