Controversial addition to the Grassroots Out rally, George Galloway, has ripped into the “childish” and “tabloid” BBC for asking him to come into studio to discuss the European Union, but then launching a personal ‘gotcha’ attack on him demanding he defend his appearance at the event.
Mr. Galloway was invited to appear on today’s Daily Politics show on BBC2, but alleges he was misled by producers. He told interviewer Jo Coburn:
Ex-MP George Galloway on his running to be London mayor.
Recorded from RT HD, In The Now, 22 June 2015.
Not necessarily his ‘best’ moments but certainly the most interesting and entertaining.
– ‘If I’m London mayor, Max Keiser will be economic advisor’ – George Galloway (RT, June 5, 2015):
London mayoral candidate George Galloway says he would appoint radical financial commentator and RT presenter Max Keiser to be his economic advisor if he is elected to City Hall in next year’s election.
Galloway revealed the planned appointment on Twitter, adding that “Mr Banker” should take note.
Galloway, the former Respect party MP for Bradford West, will take part in the May 5, 2016, mayoral election where incumbent Boris Johnson will not be standing, as he was elected an MP for Uxbridge and South Ruislip in the UK general election. Two-time Mayor Johnson is widely expected to receive a portfolio in the Conservative Cabinet after he steps down as mayor.
Keiser, an American citizen who lives in London, said he and Galloway had been discussing the possibility for “several years,” claiming he could bring “unparalleled experience and expertise to this job.”

– Pro Israeli Jewish Terrorist Who Attacked George Galloway Is Jailed For 16 Months (Gilad Atzmon, Dec 12, 2014):
A London court has sentenced a pro-Israel British man to 16 months in jail for attacking British lawmaker and Press TV presenter George Galloway earlier this year.
Judge Aidon Marron of the Isleworth Crown Court sentenced former BBC employee Niel Masterson on Thursday for assaulting the Bradford lawmaker in August.
Marron said during the sentencing that the assault on Galloway was a completely unprovoked and sustained attack, which involved kicking and repeated heavy punching.
