In case you’re interested, you can find both video and a full transcript of George Galloway’s testimony here. (Hat tip DemiOrator.)

Also, it occurs to me on another viewing that Galloway sounds exactly like Mr. Shakes when he’s on a rant. Same steely look, too. Although decidedly less use of the words “fooking” and “coonts.”

UPDATE: Mr. Shakes, who just said (I swear), "I fooking loove Gallooway; he's sooch a fooking coont," pointed me in the direction of Galloway's comments to the loathesome Christopher Hitchens (via MaxSpeak):
Before the hearing began, the Respect MP for Bethnal Green and Bow even had some scorn left over to bestow generously upon the pro-war writer Christopher Hitchens. "You're a drink-soaked former Trotskyist popinjay," Mr Galloway informed him. "Your hands are shaking. You badly need another drink," he added later, ignoring Mr Hitchens's questions and staring intently ahead. "And you're a drink-soaked ..." Eventually Mr Hitchens gave up. "You're a real thug, aren't you?" he hissed, stalking away.
