Spurious George

The Times Online reports a U.S. Senate Committee has concluded that British Member of Parliament George Galloway not only perjured himself in recent testimony but was also on the take in the oil-for-food scam.
GEORGE GALLOWAY faces possible criminal charges after a US Senate investigation tracked $150,000 (£85,000) in Iraqi oil money to his wife’s bank account in Jordan.

The Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations will refer the Respect Party MP for possible prosecution after concluding that he gave “false and misleading” testimony at his appearance before the panel in May.

The sub-committee claimed that, through intermediaries, Mr Galloway and the Mariam Appeal were granted eight allocations of Iraqi crude oil totalling 23 million barrels from 1999 to 2003.
Galloway's testimony was marked by his defiance of the Committee. It seems he had little to be defiant about.
Hey there, Galloway,
Spitting out venom at everyone,
Hiding graft from the light of the sun,
While telling lies to get your way.
Hey there, Galloway,
Think of how much more you could have got;
Damn those Puritans all to rot.
At least you got to make some hay.
