James Hamilton writes to point out that you don't have to wonder whether Galloway's ranting style is reminscent of Oswald Mosley. You can hear the man himself in action. Certainly the Earls Court speech is there or thereabouts.
Elsewhere the Englishman In New York is in a rich vein of form, blogging lap-dancers, fisking Orla Guerin and the Gorgeous One. He's even contributed to a blogging book.
Galloway like Mosley ? No way !
Galloway is so full of anger and self righteousness that there was barely any need for a microphone. Moreover, his use of the lecturn as a prop to be leaned against and launched from as he delivered his tirades was eerily reminiscent of one Adolf Hitler. I can’t believe I am even comparing Galloway to the bogeyman of the 20th century, but it is no inch of an exaggeration. He delivers his bluster with such venom that he is a dead ringer for the leader of the Third Reich.
He's got some interesting ideas though. It seems that not only did America deserve 9/11, they may already be planning the next 'provocation'. Plenty of tin-foil needed at this site.
Previously Mr Galloway has suggested that there is a very real danger of the government engineering a situation where terror attacks can be manufactured and seized upon to forward the pre-planned agenda abroad and at home. On Friday Mr Galloway elaborated on these comments:
"There is a very real danger because you have elements within the state, you have theRichard Pearle 'axis of evil' snarling 'you're next' at this country or that country and yet the circumstance on the ground, the political collapse of the Bushites in the United States, the resistance in Iraq having taken such a terrible toll...is making the idea of another war simply ridiculous...and yet there are those in this Neo-Con, Zionist, Christian Fundamentalist axis that really are itching to get as much of this agenda pushed on whilst they still have the reins of power.
So you cannot discount some kind of provocation being staged by those elements who want to propel the US into an even more disastrous invasion"
Greatest opening line?
