Last night’s Question Time. I felt duty bound to stay awake past my bedtime to keep an eye on it.
It was horrible. I could just leave it there.....
George Galloway got a taste of his own medicine, which was nice. The bully, bullied.
Fancy George not knowing that the ‘Finchley’ audience wouldn’t be stuffed with his own supporters?
Well, I suppose the artificially weighted audiences we are accustomed to on Q. T. led to a false sense of security. The unexpected absence of fellow Jew-bashers must have taken him by surprise. It certainly was a surprise to me that on this occasion the BBC hadn’t ‘bussed in’ the lefties and far lefties as usual.
A little harmless schadenfreude for once. However it wasn’t quite as enjoyable as it might have been because of the apparent collective acquiescence to a presumption of Israel’s guilt.
The comments below some of the online press reviews attest to recent findings about negative, nay, hostile, attitudes to Israel. The compliments about his eloquence are as obsequious as they are wrong-headed. That staccato, ‘defy me if you dare’ delivery is merely hectoring and bullying.
