Anti-war figure ousted

The week's news at a glance.

London

Tony Blair’s Labor Party has kicked out George Galloway, its most colorfully outspoken member of Parliament. The anti-war activist was suspended from the party a few months ago because of allegations that he had accepted money from the regime of Saddam Hussein. Those charges were never proved, and his expulsion this week came on different grounds. A Labor inquiry found that Galloway had urged British troops in Iraq to defy their orders and called on Iraqis to rise up against the occupying coalition forces. “This was a travesty of justice, a politically motivated kangaroo court,” Galloway said. “[Blair’s] response to the disaster of the war is to attack those who opposed the war.”
