Galloway's obstacles

George Galloway's campaign manager, Ron McKay, describes some of the dirty tricks, biased journalism, and outright vote fraud that Galloway had to overcome on his way to victory (not to mention some real Islamofascists who believe voting is a sin). You can see by the stupid opinions held on Galloway by otherwise smart people how easy it is for the press to seriously defame a man if they make a concerted effort to lie about him. Galloway had all the press against him, all 'educated' opinion, all the celebrities against him, and was running against a popular MP who had won the last election by 10000 votes. I now have to go out and burn all my Billy Bragg CD's.
