The use of Reason and reasonable argumentation, the reclaiming of the idea of Progress and the struggle against dogma. In this post-modern world, reinventing Enlightenment is of the utmost importance.

George in da house

The Right Honourable George Galloway is the firebrand member of Parliament from the anti-Iraq war coalition party Respect. George is a former Labour MP who defected from the party in protest for its warmongering in the Middle East. He is one of the most competent spokespersons for the antiwar movement in Britain.

This respected and important political figure, after being elected to the House of Commons, decided to join another house, the House of Celebrity Big Brother. Alongside the pornographer Jodie Marsh, the pierced-up Dennis Rodman and the past mistress of coach Sven Goran-Ericsson, George smokes remorsefully his Cuban cigars. No doubt George thought the Big Brother house was a perfect platform to play havoc on Labour’s Iraq adventure, but he has been thoroughly censored. The Producer of Big Brother has excused the program by saying that broadcasting rules in Britain determine that any political statement must be accompanied by a counter argument. Because no one in the house cares a sod about politics, or George for that matter, there is no debate.

Can anyone play the system? Can the system be used against itself? George thought he could use the ultimate reality TV show against the ultimate crimes of reality, and he is being proven wrong. Gorgeous George that’s not the way!

Galloway should have more sense than to go into that sort of experience. Public forums only
work if you have the right audience. Unfortunately the audience of BB is not likely to be the one George would appreciate.

Is he brave or just dim? That's what bites me...

Brave, but I feel he has miscalculated the consequences.
