Itís taken a couple of months, but the honourable member for Baghdad has finally put his money where his big fat Saddam-kissing mouth is:

The controversial anti-war MP George Galloway yesterday issued high court libel proceedings against the Daily Telegraph over a claim that he was in the pay of Saddam Hussein.

Should be fun.

It is fair to say that he would not have had too much trouble raising the cash for the court action.

"I did not have financial intercourse with that dictator - Saddam Hussein." George Galloway.

If only the British government had the will to send him the way of the infamous "Lord Haw Haw" (hanged for high treason, 1946)!

So Tim, if the court finds Galloway didn't do it, will you retract the "Saddam-kissing" bit?
