George Galloway pledges 'solidarity' to Hugo Chavez
By Aleksander Boyd
27.11.05 | Sure enough, it was only a matter of time. As the good old saying goes "birds of a feather..." Green Left is reporting today "BRITAIN: Respect pledges solidarity with Venezuela" in which the following can be read:
There's been a surge of late of all sorts of 'solidarity' messages towards the Venezuelan would-be dictator. After devoting so much energy to 'bury' the FTAA, Chavez's appearance in Mar del Plata gave the world the opportunity to see where he stands: shoulder to shoulder with lusus naturae, read drug abusers and traffickers, guerrillas, terrorists, communists and the rest of the useless pariahs that happen to plague this planet.
Ergo George Galloway just couldn't help himself. His 'respect coalition' has just pledged solidarity with Chavez, coincidentally in the wake of the saucy deal to distribute discounted oil to low income families in Boston at the detriment of Venezuela's poor.
Could it be that oily George is seeking to reenact in Bethnal Green and Bow what democrat comrades managed across the pond? It seems to me that Galloway, who stands accused of having lied under oath before the US Senate, is eyeing another opportunity to profit from an oil-rich authoritarian, just as he did with the UN's Oil for Food Programme during the Saddam years.
