Just when most of us thought that Mother Agnes (Mère Agnès-Mariam de la Croix( had disappeared from the political scene, George Galloway appears determined to resurrect her.

George Galloway interviews Mother Agnes

Mother Agnes Mariam of the Cross and George Galloway.
From Galloway’s Twitter line, Posted on December 2, 2013 by fatherdave

It is wonderful to see two dear and respected friends join forces for the sake of justice and peace.

This interview is part of George’s innovative new program, screening through “Russia Today” – “SPUTNIK… Orbiting the World with George Galloway”.

You can see the full episode (no.3) here.

Or indeed here, with the bonus of seeing John Wight, of the Socialist Unity Blog of Andrew Newman (Labour Party PPC),



In defending Mother Agnes, John Wight and Galloway thus join the ‘9/11’ denial site Voltaire Net, and its founder, Thierry Meyssan – who currently lives in Damscus, Syria. 

We have already Blogged on Mother Agnes and those interested can find here why we find this massacre-denying supporter of the Syrian regime beyond the pale.

  1. Oh, does Iran not offer much of an “audience”, or have they become pro-imperialist with their possible deal with the USA? It was only a matter of time before he got put on Russia Today, a home of one-sided anti-western conspiracy theories and strange (for ‘serious journalism’) interview partners. Will Rees/German etc. be following him?

    So Galloway is plugging Mother Assad. Let him.

  2. It says a lot though for Galloway that even Russia Today is complelled to screen a disclaimer before each episode of his programme. Are they just being cautious re. Ofcom? Or does RT have a problem with the concepts of “liberty, democracy” etc. that for some reason unbekown to me appear in the end trailer?

    Next time around Lee Jasper’s Galloway’s guest.

    RT’s sister radio station, the Voice of Russia have just sacked their German service editor, while she was on holiday (classy), and most of their Berlin staff, after they took that “journalism” thing a bit too seriously and covered rather large and lively protests at the Russian Embassy in Berlin (opposite the VoR office) against the Putin Clause 28 in a manner that displeased their bosses at the former Radio Moscow.

    Incidentally: does Red Ken go in for this kind of thing, does he have any shows on strange television stations? And is Galloway still hectoring the elite of Beirut (they who dare to walk out in disgust) on that television station run by one of the Assad family?

  3. At least they gave Galloway an appropriately named show. He is a space cadet, after all.

    Not George Sabra

  4. That first counterfire link includes a mention of one of their events:
    “London: Everything you ever wanted to know about socialism but were afraid to”

    I’m not sure that is the correct title.

  5. Thanks for the info about Meysann. Funny how so many of these supposed dissidents end seeking refuge in authoritarian countries. I wonder where he’ll go if Assad does not succeed in holding on to power.
