Nothing George Galloway says or does should surprise anyone any longer. Even so, his latest musings on the situation in Ukraine – delivered on the Iranian propaganda channel Press TV – are quite something. Even by his lofty standards they may represent a new low. Just watch him go:

Galloway excels even himself here. It’s the tortuous creativity that really does it. If it weren’t so typical and so typically revolting you’d almost be impressed by it.

Is it too much to ask that the other parties agree next year to field but a single candidate against Galloway? As for the people of Bradford West, well, the best that can be said is that electing Galloway once might be a misfortune, doing so twice would be very much worse than careless. This is one seat the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats should agree to cede to Labour.
