Nothing to do with me, pal.

ReverendBlueJeans - 04 May 2021 10:43:19 (#2 of 80)

Well, that's gnomic.

GreenFuture - 04 May 2021 10:53:27 (#3 of 80)

I will never stop saying this about Galloway - he actively stirs race hate. I've seen him do it personally, called him out on it, then saw him do it subsequently online.

He was telling people of a south asian background that Eastern Europeans were taking their job opportunities.

Filth.

You have to be hard up for an argument if you're trying to make comic Janey Godley a champion of Scottish values.

Janey Godley describes the working class she came from as alcoholics, addicts and the homeless. " .... 'Jakey' is synonymous with alcoholic, addict, homeless, and I come from alcoholics and addicts. I'm not ashamed of my working class roots and I will always speak like this

Galloway has a more positive view of his fellow Scots. George Galloway @georgegalloway Apr 30 We are a people who made it big all over the world as artists architects engineers film and television professionals

GreenFuture - 04 May 2021 10:53:27 ( #3 of 4) He was telling people of a south asian background that Eastern Europeans were taking their job opportunities.

Standard Brexiter rhetoric to say that "cheap labour" from the EU was taking British jobs. The Brexit case is founded on xenophobia.

The 'Jakey' thing. You know, in the article.

Suddenly everything becomes clear!

GreenFuture - 04 May 2021 13:09:13 (#8 of 80)

Yes guigal, but a Galloway twist to target that resentment at south asians (when I saw it first hand, it was in a mosque ffs)

And any socialist knows that the answer to poor wages is strong workers rights, strong unions and robust minimum wage legislation. Galloway isn't a socialist. He also opposes free movement of the working class.

I'd no idea George Galloway had any credibility to crash.

George Galloway does not have any credibility to crash.

Ah well. As you were, then.

CarlosFandango - 04 May 2021 13:22:49 (#14 of 80)

As we are, even.

ReverendBlueJeans - 04 May 2021 13:23:17 (#15 of 80)

He had quite a following during Blairism but that has largely disappeared and many of those doing the following have erased it from their CVs.

SatelliteOne - 04 May 2021 13:23:19 (#16 of 80)

I'm surprised anyone gives him any credibility at all, he's long since outed himself as an utter cunt.

He's the useful idiot of the Tory press.

TheExcession - 04 May 2021 13:39:32 (#17 of 80)

"I will never stop saying this about Galloway - he actively stirs race hate."

He tried to do it in Bradford with anti-Jewish rhetoric. The Muslim and Jewish communities enjoy good relations here and thankfully his words went down like a lead balloon.

I'd missed this one where he was called out for racism for claiming to be more Scottish than Humza Yousaf because he was a 'Celt'.

The really egregious bit is where he stands wearing his resting-actor hat and calls Yousaf a 'poseur'...

More Tweetystuff, following up from the Janey Godley spat. Galloway shown to have been dopey and easily fooled. Splendid put-down by Neil Gaiman.

He had quite a following during Blairism

He was very shouty during the Gulf War, he peaked during his famous trip to Washington and managing to successfully sue the Telegraph managing to pick up £150000 in damages.
