After Lutfur Ali and Muslim Aid, the Curse of Gilligan has landed on another IFE ally. Respect’s George Galloway is £100,000 a year poorer this week after parting company with TalkSport, the radio station where he presented The Mother Of All Talk Shows on Friday and Saturday nights.
Mr Galloway says: “After a run of more than four years the highly popular radio show – The Mother of All Talkshows – has been killed off by the TalkSport management. I believe this is a business mistake, but then I don’t run the radio station and such decisions are not mine to take….It is unlikely that the TalkSport management will change their mind and re-instate the show – but you never know.”
Mr Galloway, of course, is the man who owes, in his own words, “more than I can say, more than it would be wise for me to say” to the Islamists. Could this have played any part in his demise? Not for me to say, your honour.
