Galloway Fund Raises for Potential Legal Case: “Signed copies of my #FidelCastro Handbook are now back in stock!”

 

Alliance For Unity’s use of RAF logo being looked at by Ministry of Defence

reports the right-leaning Scottish nationalist, The National.

THE branding of George Galloway’s Alliance for Unity party is being investigated by the Ministry of Defence’s copyright lawyers, The National can reveal.

A4U are a grouping of people with varying political allegiances that hope to stop pro-independence parties gaining a majority in May’s Holyrood election.

This is the response from George Galloway’s current minions.

 

This follows a contretemps a few weeks ago,

The former MP had applied for his party to be called “All for Unity”.

Former MP George Galloway has suffered another setback in his bid to get elected to Holyrood.

An application for the party he founded to be called “All for Unity” was rejected by an elections body due to incomplete paperwork.

Galloway was a long standing Labour MP in Glasgow who attracted headlines in 2006 after he pretended to be a cat on Celebrity Big Brother.

Galloway’s old friends in Counterfire,  such as John Rees, and Lindsey German (also of the Stop the War Coalition), or his bagman, Kevin Ovenden,  have yet to spill the beans on what happened during their years and years of support for the dapper Caledonian gent.

“Galloway’s support for Hezbollah and Hamas, his refusal to debate with Israeli Jews, and his declaration of Bradford as being an “Israeli-free zone” are among the issues which have led to the attitudes of the politician being thought suspect”

Or indeed on what they think about his more recent adventures.

One day, one can only hope, we will be told.

  1. It is also worth mentioning that he has managed to get off the hook over his notorious gatecrashing entry as the sole spectator at a Covid closed match between Dumfries based Scottish Championship club Queen of the South and Dundee FC, with Police Scotland reserving their ire for the home club rather than the fedora wearing one . Nonetheless Galloway has united supporters from both sdes in bitter enmity now; from Queens fans for being a pushy incomer to the area who blagged his way into a closed match, and from Dundonians who bitterly recall that it was their votes for him at for the local council back in the early 70’s that first put him on his path to political life, only for him to now seemingly disavow his roots. More on this from the Indie; https://www.independent.co.uk/sport/football/scottish/george-galloway-queen-of-the-south-tier-4-b1779659.html

  2. I have long subscribed to Marina Hyde’s rule of thumb: “If you ever find yourself on the same side as George Galloway, you’re on the wrong side.”

    But the f**ker’s against Scottish nationalism! I don’t know which way to turn!

    • To be fair, his veneration of the Union and of old style imperial togetherness goes back a long way – see this clip of him arriving at a meeting a long time since; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SISjSXsb1xU

    • Me as well, it is the only time I have even posed the question. But as David Walsh says, he is an old style British nationalist.
