Iraq and Weapons of Mass Destruction (24 Sep 2002)

George Galloway: My point of order is this, Mr. Speaker. Is it not custom and practice for a Member who is attacked by another, by name, to be allowed to rise and answer the point?

Iraq and Weapons of Mass Destruction (24 Sep 2002)

George Galloway: On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. There is an extraordinary rumour sweeping the Palace that, having failed to table a substantive motion, the Government will not even have the courage to vote for the Adjournment at 10 o'clock. So afraid are they of the large number of Labour Members of Parliament who would not be with them in the Lobby. They are frightened to face—

Iraq and Weapons of Mass Destruction (24 Sep 2002)

George Galloway: It is a pity that the House was not recalled earlier and it is a bigger pity that we will not be permitted a vote on a substantive motion today. The biggest pity of all is that the dossier—the dance of the seven veils—finally came to light just a couple of hours before this debate began. Many of us would have liked the opportunity to check with our sources many of the claims that are in...

Iraq and Weapons of Mass Destruction (24 Sep 2002)

George Galloway: No. How do my friends feel having to say that Al Gore is wrong and that George W. Bush is correct? [Hon. Members: "Give way."] I do not have time to give way in a time-limited speech. My friends have to answer why they are on George W. Bush's side of the argument and not on the side of Gerhard Schroder, the leader of the German Social Democrats, our sister party in the Socialist International.

Iraq and Weapons of Mass Destruction (24 Sep 2002)

George Galloway: The second problem is even more substantial. The British people instinctively know that adding another war to the middle east where there are quite enough wars already does not seem like a sensible idea. People see the Israel that the Foreign Secretary told us had received new instructions from the Security Council last night demolishing brick by brick the solemn commitments in the Oslo...

Iraq and Weapons of Mass Destruction (24 Sep 2002)

George Galloway: The British people saw on the news this morning that nine Palestinians were killed just last night in just one city in Gaza. They see the devastation and the flames in Palestine, the unresolved conflicts in Afghanistan and the rising tide of Islamic fundamentalism and hatred against the west and they instinctively know that it is extremely unlikely that the world can be made a safer place by...

Iraq and Weapons of Mass Destruction (24 Sep 2002)

George Galloway: If Members read the Scott report, they will see just how true that is. The fact is that innocent Iraqi civilians will die in their thousands if this war goes ahead. They include the children who are even now terrified every night before they go to sleep about when the dive bombers will come. Siamese twins were born at the weekend in Baghdad. Usually when Siamese twins are born we start...

Iraq and Weapons of Mass Destruction (24 Sep 2002)

George Galloway: Where is it now?

Iraq and Weapons of Mass Destruction (24 Sep 2002)

George Galloway: Will the Foreign Secretary give way on that point?

Iraq and Weapons of Mass Destruction (24 Sep 2002)

George Galloway: Will Israel react to last night's Security Council resolution in the way that it reacted to the one after its rampage through the holy land at Easter when the UN unanimously demanded that Israel accept inspectors from the UN to check reports of mass destruction of refugees in the camp at Jenin? Israel told the inspectors to get stuffed, they got stuffed and not another word has been said...

The Middle East (16 Apr 2002)

George Galloway: In the years during which I was on the campaign trail with my right hon. Friend the Member for Manchester, Gorton (Mr. Kaufman), I used to describe him as the best Foreign Secretary that Labour never had. I think that he proved that again this evening. The real Foreign Secretary, on the other hand, sought at the outset to inject a tranquilliser into the debate. He proceeded on that basis to...

Personal Statements (7 Mar 2002)

George Galloway: With permission, Mr. Speaker, I should like to make a personal statement. In the debate in Westminster Hall yesterday, exchanges became frank to the point of being unacceptable, and I should like to apologise to the Deputy Speaker in Westminster Hall, my hon. Friend the Member for Blaydon (Mr. McWilliam), to you, Mr. Speaker, and to the House for my part in that. The issues under discussion...

Iraq (6 Mar 2002)

George Galloway: Why do you not give way on that slander?

Iraq (6 Mar 2002)

George Galloway: The Minister is a liar.

Iraq (6 Mar 2002)

George Galloway: The Minister told a lie about me.

Iraq (6 Mar 2002)

George Galloway: Why? The Minister told a blatant lie about me. What else could I do. What else can I call it? I demand that he withdraws the allegation against me.

Iraq (6 Mar 2002)

George Galloway: An allegation of dishonourable conduct has been made against me by the Minister. It is an assumption in the House that Members are honourable gentlemen and ladies. His imputation that I am a mouthpiece for a dictator is a clear imputation of dishonour. He is the one who should be withdrawing, not me.

Iraq (6 Mar 2002)

George Galloway: My hon. Friend the Member for Knowsley, North and Sefton, East (Mr. Howarth) spoke eloquently about the United Nations. For the avoidance of doubt, I must say that the Secretary-General of the United Nations has stated explicitly that there is no authority and no justification for launching a war against Iraq. Given their public statements, the majority of members of the Security Council of...

Iraq (6 Mar 2002)

George Galloway: I listened carefully to what my hon. Friend said, as I always do. I clearly recollect that he was anxious for the credibility of the United Nations to be maintained and believes that its centrality to world events is extremely important. As a member of the Labour party, how could he think otherwise? The last organisation in the world that is likely to authorise George Bush's attack on Iraq is...

Iraq (6 Mar 2002)

George Galloway: I am glad that the Minister said, "Hear, hear" to my hon. Friend's intervention because I want to ask the Minister a blunt question. If Iraq readmits the United Nations weapons inspectors, whom the British and American Governments withdrew, does he agree that war in those circumstances would be unconscionable? I invite him to rise in response to that point, or at least to deal with it in his...
