Now that he finds himself without a day job, maybe it is time for Galloway to focus his energies on what he does best.

This is what we have degenerated British political debate into. A festival of unsubstantiated mudslinging and disrespectful campaigning. I would say it is like watching teenagers, but teenagers have evidently proven far more effective.

Netanyahu was not making a case against any deal with Iran. He was making a case for a tougher deal with stronger and clearer conditions that does not leave Iran within touching distance of a nuclear weapon.
