The Null Device
MP in Saddam's service?
Documents have allegedly emerged in the ruins of Iraqi government buildings proving that
a left-wing British parliamentarian was on Saddam Hussein's payroll
The documents suggest that Labour MP George Galloway, an outspoken critic of the war best known for vehemently denouncing Tony Blair as a "war criminal", was receiving £375,000 a year from Baghdad for his services. Apparently, this princely sum was still not enough for Galloway, who was asking for more.
Galloway has denied the allegations and is planning to sue the Daily Telegraph
for libel. Blair is confident that the papers are genuine; Galloway's supporters claim they're part of a smear campaign, and cite the case of forged papers "proving" Iraqi uranium purchases, now discredited.
I wonder whether the usual liberal-bashers will run these allegations, citing them as proof that the anti-war movement were Saddam's dupes.
