(Thanks to Jimmy’s Corner for the heads-up)
This is an interview conducted on 6th August on Sky News by its Jerusalem bureau reporter, Anna Botting, with controversial left-wing UK MP George Galloway, most notable for his strong stance from the very beginning against the war in Iraq.
The interview is most notable for the lengthy and biased questions by the reporter, and Galloway’s eloquent and informed rebuttal of all of them in his own unique style. I have been a critic of Galloway in the past for courting unnecessary conflict, but on this occasion, I can’t fault him in any way. There is only one way to handle such a bizarre interview. Not that he hasn’t got experience, either – “you are conducting one of the most absurd interviews I have ever participated in” pretty much sums that one up.
