George Galloway is without doubt an interesting politician.
He has something about him that makes me pay attention. He is so brash and confident that he sounds convincing. He is in the news again today because he says he has been falsely accused of lying under oath by the US Senate committee which accused him of receiving oil cash from Saddam Hussein.
Mr Galloway said: "I am ready to fly to the US today... to face such a charge (perjury) because it is simply false."
That sounds like confidence to me and I am sure he is not just wanting a trip to the States to do some early Christmas shopping!

Whether George Galloway is right or wrong does not really interest me that much. The fascination to me is why he grabs so many headlines.
Like him or loathe him - I guess he has charisma and is an excellent speaker.
