Pond Scum
British MP and Saddam dung fly, Georgie Galloway has had his fingers in the till. Dominic Kennedy at the UK Times - Galloway used fund for leukaemia girl to pay for Iraq trips:
GEORGE GALLOWAY has paid for frequent visits to Iraq from a fund set up to save the life of a four-year-old girl with leukaemia.

The MP flew Mariam Hamza from Iraq to a children’s hospital in Glasgow and launched a public appeal for money using her name. On House of Commons notepaper, he wrote to donors telling them that the money would all go on hospital fees for Mariam and medical care for other Iraqi children.

But the fund, which is not a charity and refuses to divulge its accounts or trustees, has so far paid for 14 trips by Mr Galloway to 15 countries, including eight visits to Iraq.
