George Galloway and The Senate Update

As expected George Galloway went before the Senate committee and instead of being the apologetic, respectful, differential witness, he was an English politician. Senate committees appear to be unused to public debate and discussion, instead the senators concentrate on getting sound bites and those called to testify are in awe of the gravity of their surrounds. English politicians on the other hand engage in verbal debates and points scoring on a daily basis. It really was a bit of an unfair fight and Mr Galloway walked away as "the new Michael Moore" and with a lucrative lecture tour beckoning.
