Controversial British Member of Parliament George Galloway has been caught on camera grabbing a constituent by the shoulders and saying, “I don’t want your f*cking vote, so don’t give me that sh*t!”
Galloway was being covertly recorded by shop-worker Khasim Ahmed who said to him, “My whole family has voted for you… but to be honest I don’t think there has been any changes”.
The MP replied, “How can one MP make a change?”
Ahmed said, “Some people are saying, ‘Where’s Galloway, where’s Galloway gone, can’t see Galloway nowhere’. Galloway people try linking [meeting] you Galloway but they can’t find you. But when it comes back to the election you come back”.
Galloway began telling the man how he was reachable on Twitter and Facebook, but the MP quickly lost his temper, grabbing Ahmed by the shoulders and saying, “Listen, I’m not even standing in the f*cking elections. I don’t want your f*cking vote, so don’t give me that sh*t!”
Mr Galloway’s spokesman said the MP’s language had been “rather extreme and regrettable”. He said: “He regrets losing his temper in the face of extreme provocation.”
Galloway is best remembered for saluting Saddam Hussain’s “strength” and “indefatigability”. He is a staunch socialist who supported Chavez, and openly takes money from the Iranian government-run Press TV channel. He is notorious for his anti-Israel rhetoric, and indeed for his testimony before the U.S. Senate.
