    How did you come to that conclusion? Why do certain people just spew 'troll' at every thread they come across?

    Again, you fail to refute my argument and reinforce your claims. Instead, resorting to lazy, infantile ad homs.

    So why, exactly, do you think Griffin should not be allowed on Question Time? If the BBC are measuring such parameters on offensiveness, Galloway has arguably spouted views and acted in a manner which is on the same level, if not worse than Griffin.

    Griffin and Galloway may subscribe to different ideologies, but their levels of offensiveness and extremism are negligible.
    Look, you seem adament to try to establish a claim that seeks to equate Galloway and Griffin as both "on the same level" in terms of offensiveness and extremism, on what basis you are saying this, for the life of me i have not got a clue.

    A really interesting panel!

    "David Dimbleby will be joined in Norwich by Geoff Hoon MP, Baroness Warsi, Baroness Williams, Clive James and George Galloway MP."

    Galloway will infuriate the hell out of me, which begs the question as to why he (as a political extremist) is allowed on Question Time, when Nick Griffin seemingly is not. I find Griffin's views as abhorrent as Galloway's views, but I don't like the double standards of the BBC.
    My enduring memory of Galloway is when he took apart a senator in a congressional committee. I love George as a guy, though find his views insufferable.

    Yet again, you descend on the thread with your verbose, playground insults, whilst lacking the capacity to provide any grain of substance.

    I've already refuted one individual by providing evidence, yet you seem intent on simply attacking me in a such a senseless manner. Clearly, I have insulted a person of whom you idolise, this is evident.

    At least you've pulled out of the argument (in an utterly cowardly manner, I might add), so I don't expect any further childish retorts, considering the tripe within your last sentence. Something tells me that you are as hypocritical as the BBC, however, so I am sure I will see a reply in due course.

    Why do you dusslike him so much. Atleast he stands up fpr what he believes and those whom he represents unlike a lot of other Mp's. Just watch him defend himself against the congressional committee.

    You compare the to but your argument has no substance.

    Your needless contentious and argumentative nature. This is meant to be a discussion, not an argument/attack. If someone wants to debate then they'll debate, they don't need provocation.
    That, and all your posts came on the same day, and are all of the same contentious nature.
    If your not a Troll, then ur just a bit of a ******.

    Tell that to slawaccess23, who appears to be intent on simply attacking me and not engaging in the debate. I've already provided him with numerous chances to refute my original argument, but he resorts to personal attacks. I don't see why I shouldn't be allowed to defend myself.

    Hitler stood up for what he believed, as you put it, and was an excellent orator - which appears to be your sole defense of Galloway.

    Just because you happen to be a vehement, confident public speaker doesn't mean your actions or language is any less repugnant.

    Galloway and Griffin are two very different beasts. I don't see how you can compare them. The former is a media hating anarchist who thinks he's correct on just about everything and the latter is just a vile, ignorant and un-educated pig who offers sod all to British politics.

    Sorry but that point is not going to stick. Every/most prominant politicians/leaders have stood for what they believed and are generally good orators. I like Galloway because he is not a stooge of anyone and i respect most of his views however find some a little disheartening. Although politicians are never liked by everyone and never please anyone 100% of the time. His views on Iraq soley put him apart from many other british Politicians.

    again i asked why you disslike him hopefully you can give me an answer this time.

    I just feel sorry for the celebrity guests. They have nothing intelligent to say when put on the spot....they should just get more political commentators.

    That's your opinion, I am sure another person may feel that Griffin is a 'media hating fascist' and Galloway is a 'vile, ignorant and un-educated pig who offers sod all to British politics'.

    It's not so hard really, most MP's with at least some proficiency in debate could take apart an American Senator or Congressman as they don't have the same kind of incredibly nuanced and skilled debating culture that exists in the British houses. British politics creates politicans that are very very good at debate, whereas American politics creates politicans that are great at speech writing and putting forth grand ideas but are pretty average when it comes to open unscripted debates.

    Admittedly Galloway is a little Scottish firecracker but I think his performance there was much overhyped.

    No, that's the opinion of most decent British citizens.
