George Galloway: 'I'm sick of political class parasites like Lord Adonis and Alastair Campbell'

George Galloway gave his strong view on Lord Adonis

Tuesday, January 2, 2018

George Galloway has said he is sick of political class parasites like Lord Adonis and Alastair Campbell trying to ruin the trust of British people.

Lord Adonis has resigned from his position as chairman of the Government's infrastructure commission in protest against Brexit and the Government's approach to it.

Our host began by clarifying reports that Adonis is a Labour Peer, pointing out that he had resigned the Labour whip in protest at Jeremy Corbyn.

George continued: "He never stood for Parliament he was never elected to Parliament, he was granted a grace and favour seat in Parliament and has acted as a parasite on the political class ever since."

He thinks Adonis is "effectively saying is that the Government should ignore the votes of 17.4 million people and tell them all that they have to do better next time. Maybe even a second referendum, maybe even a third referendum. As long as it takes until they vote the right way." 

He added: "I am sick of the political class parasites like him and like Alastair Campbell, another man who has never been elected to anything in his life," meddling in the Brexit process.

"They are doing their best to wreck the trust and the faith of the British people in democracy, in politics, and that’s what I cannot stand."

Papers from 1987 have also been released which show the Ulster Volunteer Force claims it was asked by MI5 to kill Irish Prime Minister Charles Haughey.

Our talkRADIO host said the story "ought to be the number one issue on the news this evening. Charles Haughey was the elected Prime Minister of Ireland and we were going to use a terrorist group to assassinate him."

He believes the "threat to murder a foreign prime minister of our closest neighbour and fellow EU member" is something "the Government simply must be forced to comment on."
