George Galloway: 'People who believe the Iraq war was a disaster are treated like lunatics'

George Galloway has claimed that the media is still treating people who believe the Iraq war was a disaster as "lunatics."

The talkRADIO presenter said: "For decades we were treated as mad, or bad, or both, if we questioned orthodoxies that are now utterly bankrupted, like the Iraq war for example.

"I was treated by the mainstream media on both sides of the Atlantic as some kind of lunatic, or some kind of criminal, for raising questions to which now there’s not any even argument."

However he believes that now "everyone accepts that the invasion and occupation of Iraq was a complete and cataclysmic disaster."

Despite this, "the same people that treated me as mad or bad, are still sitting in their chairs and still subjecting...people like Jeremy Corbyn, to the same kind of treatment that they subjected me to when I turned out to be absolutely right."
