Water Privatisation (Scotland) (14 Dec 1992)

George Galloway: I note the mirth on the Conservative Bench. I say "Bench" rather than "Benches" because I think that the public, when they read the report of our debate, should understand that behind the Minister and his lackey are rolling acres of green leather: not a single Scottish Conservative has turned up to defend the Government on this vital issue. My hon. Friend the Member for Dundee, East (Mr....

Water Privatisation (Scotland) (14 Dec 1992)

George Galloway: I am not suggesting that any hon. Member is lying in the House, but, collectively, the Conservative party in Scotland lied its way through the general election by omission, by refusing to acknowledge its plans to privatise Scottish water. It is impossible to withdraw that contention, for I feel it in my bones. It is an allegation, not specifically about the conduct of any hon. Member but...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Local Government (16 Dec 1992)

George Galloway: Is the Secretary of State unaware how repugnant it will seem to people at home watching our proceedings that question 2 at Scottish Question Time should be from the buffoon of Basildon about Scottish independence? Question 3, which the Secretary of State is now answering, impugns the integrity of people who are not here to answer for themselves and was asked by a man—

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Local Government (16 Dec 1992)

George Galloway: Never mind my black shirt. Question 3 was asked by a man who brought a prostitute into this building and caused her to have a parliamentary pass. That he should be the man casting aspersions on the characters of other people, and that the Secretary of State should associate himself with that, is a revolting spectacle.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Fisheries Conservation (16 Dec 1992)

George Galloway: On a point of order, Madam Speaker.

Points of Order (16 Dec 1992)

George Galloway: On a point of order, Madam Speaker. You must be aware that Scottish Question Time today was the site of, and the vehicle for, a concerted abuse of the Order Paper. Four out of the first 10 Scottish questions had been tabled by English Conservative Members. Several other English Conservative Members had, unusually, come into the Chamber to ask supplementary questions. I know that you are...

Prayers: Textile Industry (17 Dec 1992)

George Galloway: In that case, I will move it again. I spy strangers.

Prayers: Terrorism (Media Coverage) (17 Dec 1992)

George Galloway: The Royal hospital for sick children, Yorkhill, is the jewel in the crown of the Greater Glasgow health board. Its service to the public over many decades has been peerless. It is famous throughout the world. Like the Royal hospital for sick children in Edinburgh, it receives large sums of charitably given money—money given in expectation that that hospital would remain a public hospital. I...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Arab-Israel Dispute (13 Jan 1993)

George Galloway: Does not the Minister understand the dynamics that lie behind the process that has led hundreds of thousands of Palestinians under occupation and in exile to look towards the Islamic extremists of Hamas? Do the Government understand that the failure of the secular nationalist leadership of the Palestinian people to obtain any significant concession has led to that radicalisation and...

Kuwait Border (Iraqi Violations) (13 Jan 1993)

George Galloway: rose—

Kuwait Border (Iraqi Violations) (13 Jan 1993)

George Galloway: Notwithstanding the consensus that exists across the Front Benches, I must say—like my hon. Friend the Member for Linlithgow (Mr. Dalyell)—that, whatever bloody act has been planned, it will not be done in my name, in the name of many people in this country or in the name of many members of the coalition that fought the Gulf war only a couple of years ago. Does not the Minister understand...

Iraq (Military Action) (13 Jan 1993)

George Galloway: The Secretary of State should be aware that the action taken tonight is worse than a crime—it is a blunder. It is a blunder because, when the fog of war clears tomorrow, we shall find that the people who have been not "spanked", as my hon. Friend the Member for Walsall, South (Mr. George) had it, but torn limb from limb and incinerated under the bombs—smart or otherwise—will be people...

The Gulf and RAF (21 Jan 1993)

George Galloway: They have accepted that it was.

The Gulf and RAF (21 Jan 1993)
