george galloway a fall of the side of the main parties he founded his own respect party and secured a seats in a by election when it's been described as the most sensational victory in pretty political history. today i'm in the parliamentary office of george galloway m.p. who around three months ago one surprise election victory in his constituency of bradford west george galloway thanks very much for talking to us today now your election your victory was a surprise to many possibly not to you what does it take to break a monopoly of these three ruling parties to win an election in british politics and everest of a challenge because first of all the big parties command almost all of the media attention and the media is the medium through which most people get their political ideas and news and secondly because you usually lack of
2:32 pm
critical credibility factor people are doubtful that they would be doing other than throwing their vote away by voting for a candidate who may be closer to their cup of tea but are unlikely to win it and therefore the voters in a way taking a self-denying ordinance and the choosing of the m.p. but if you have this critical mass of. derision i mean i don't think that's too strong a war the derision felt in the country against the three mainstream parties often see if backside could have three cheeks these three parties are those three. the three mainstream parties are such that you couldn't slip a cigarette paper between them they all accept that austerity is the medicine some
2:33 pm
quibble about the dosage and the the timetable of the taking of the medicine but they all accept that the mass of the people must pay the price for the crimes and the mistakes of rich and powerful people secondly all of them support britain's role in going around the world invading other people's countries occupying them and dick spending billions in some cases hundreds of billions of hard earned money that the people have sweated for. on weapons and war. and so if you can come along and say we don't believe the ordinary people should pay the price for this crisis and we don't believe britain should be occupying other people's countries first in the ranks of those pushing for a new invasion a new occupation as mr hague is doing over syria for example at the moment we just reject that we we are paradigm is completely different and it's like in the
2:34 pm
wonderful film dead poets society when the teacher invites the children to stand on the desk and see how different everything looks once you get people standing up on those desks they can see that actually the world looks very different from that and do you think that there's a why did disconnect between politics and the electorate the people the people hold the mainstream politicians in contempt they know that the mainstream politicians hundreds. many hundreds of them almost all of them. are looting the people's pockets in parliamentary expenses which was a huge scandal. we have actually a systemic failure in britain the media is on trial the bankers are on trial the politicians have been put on trial and found guilty long ago so. who is untouched by the expenses scandal didn't claim any expenses at all. and who
2:35 pm
have has a track record of attacking the mogul billionaire mogul ownership of the media and is seen as an anti political voice in the sense of being anti the political system. bingo we won we won the jackpot and you said in the past that muslims like you because you protect them from is a lot of faith. we recently had the director of m i five say that al qaeda is using arab spring nations to recruit terrorists and potentially target britain is there a point to islamophobia therefore to people have other people justified in their fear of islam if you know like any for it is irrational exaggerated and paranoid but that's not to say the extremism does not exist of course it exists and exists in britain and it gets more and more. oxygen. as
2:36 pm
a result of the policies that the british government follows you can't make endless war against muslims and muslim countries abroad and expect to have no resonance here at home but actually we are the antidote to islamist extremism because we say to the young muslims you are right to be angry but be angry with others who are not muslims in democratic politics so that you can affect change rather than blowing yourself and other people up in these kind of terrible acts of self immolation that we saw on seven seven five years ago here almost to the day. so. the truth is al qaeda exists it was invented by the countries no most concerned about it it was invented on the principle bankrupt moral principle that my enemy's enemy is my friend the soviet union was the enemy of the west so they gave
2:37 pm
weapons and money and credibility to an islamist fanatic formation and they didn't read the novel frankenstein to the end if they had they would have known that when you make a monster it ultimately breaks free of your control so they have no one to blame but themselves for this phenomena. of islamist extremism it comes out of a swamp of hatred saun by western countries and their policies towards the muslim countries therefore the best way to solve this problem is to drain the swamp of hatred and bitterness by doing the reverse of what we did to fill it and there is a rise in islamist political parties there isn't that particularly in arab spring nations in the middle east and north africa what challenges do you think that poses for syria at the moment well a very large number of people in syria whether a majority or no i don't know are terrified of the prospects of victory for
2:38 pm
the syrian rebels because there's a substantial christian population in syria for example which has the most on a position of any christian group anywhere in the middle east. putting israel by the way. are. minority islamic sects which are substantial and minority in the state as a whole there are different ethnic groups could just people for example are terrified of the victory of a jihadist extremist islamic victory so that's undoubtedly one of the reasons why the syrian government is still holding on in the teeth of what is a thorough going and massive international conspiracy against them not because they're a dictatorship because the west likes dictatorships in the arab world saudi arabia is the grimmest dictatorship of them all and is the best friend of the west not
2:39 pm
because it's one family rule because of course all these arab dictatorships are one family rule in saudi arabia the families even given its name to the country even kim jong il didn't do that so it's not because of dislike of dictatorship no it's because the syrian regime refuses to follow western orders and has always refused to follow western orders that's why they want to bring them down they're all mixed signals they want the thermostat he seems to suggest that he will step down that he won't what do you think will happen and as far as i know he has no intention of stepping down there are people who fly kites in the western media russia's about to change its position china is about to change its position ourselves about to go on a plane this is i think largely dissent formation but undoubtedly the syrian regime has a massive problem it has democratic deficit in its country it is a dictatorship the era of dictatorship must be coming to an end in the arab world
2:40 pm
and should come to an end should have long ago come to an end but there are many dictatorships in the arab world who are not being targeted by this international conspiracy indeed are a vital. important part of the conspiracy mrs clinton declared the friends of democratic syria but within three days even she had realized the resume billeted of that moniker because its core included saudi arabia and qatar where there is no democracy of any kind whatsoever you mention these ethnic groups that are just fling for position in syria do you predict a full scale slide into civil war and if so do you think that person will be gunning to get involved well i think there already is a civil war in syria the massacres that are taking place are almost entirely demarcated by sectarian division. the.
2:41 pm
if you like the dichotomy that exists in the country it's not just between those who are with the regime or against the regime though that exists between different ethnic and confessional groups and that's a powder keg if ever you want to find one that's why i said to i said last night to a british foreign office minister what are you doing in syria have you any idea of the virtual nuclear explosion in critical area that you are helping to bring about did you learn nothing from afghanistan did you learn nothing from flying osama bin laden to afghanistan to fight the red army. this is even more dangerous because it has course front to your with with israel it's on the shores of the mediterranean so close to europe itself and
2:42 pm
it is part of if you wanted to draw out that way an arc involving iran iraq with its big shia majority. the syrian. government and the people who support and of course the. national resistance movement in lebanon hezbollah that's a very powerful arc with a lot of firepower and one of the characteristics of she is a which the foreign office minister that i talked to last night appeared oblivious to was the shiites are quite ready to fight to the death and what role do you think iran should play in bringing peace to syria well iran is a critical component in the region as a whole it's critical in iraq it could end in an afternoon the all remaining traces of western occupation of iraq in an afternoon if they give the want to do so and of course you cannot talk about the future of the region without
2:43 pm
bringing it on into it and russia and coffee alone are both correct in saying that iran is indispensable in any solution to this the only possible solution is the question on which is supported by everybody in the world except the people whose plan it ostensibly is the united nations is supporting it as the rope supports the hanging man the arab league that appointed coffee other than the first place is busily supplying weapons to the rebels to undo it but any sensible person in the world wants the plan to succeed and the plan is to buy dialogue and transition and dictatorship in syria without having to spill an ocean of blood in order to do it and destabilize the region and therefore the world i thank you very much thank you.
