Nevertheless, an invasion of Libya might might yet receive support from Mr. Galloway, who loudly announced his hostility to the Ghaddafi regime. Here is what he said on his Respect blog....
Although I have never met Colonel Gaddafi or any of his Soprano-style family, it's amazing the number of people who think I have. Once a Celtic fan described me as the "Tripoli Shamrock" at a time when I had never actually set foot in Libya.
Last week at a breakfast in Dubai, an Englishman munching his halal sausages said: "Your mate's getting a hard time in Libya isn't he?" - though YouTube is groaning with films of me denouncing Gaddafi over many years.
On my radio show last Friday, a caller - who supports me - phoned in to ask if I was embarrassed to have been pictured shaking hands with the madman. Even on air, when I told him I had appeared in no such photo, he couldn't quite believe it. Of course he could have been getting his Arab dictators mixed up - or worse - confused me with Tony Blair.
I did a quick search on youtube for Galloway and Ghaddafi. Three years ago he did loudly denounce the Libyan dictator.
