Pacem in Terris's Children

A self-righteous, self-deluded hypocrite, a friend of - and apologist for - tyrants, and a right-wing hack. All of them useless (though, in fairness, Galloway is by far the most disgusting). Whatever their religion.

Hmmm. It's not a completely unfair point you made there.

I thought of Pacem and Terris when I was watching Galloway and Short on Question Time last Thursday.

Given that when she was International Development Secretary, Short directed millions of pounds worth of funding to UNFPA, one could plausibly apply a similar argument to yours about Galloway about her.

That said, I think she went some way in redeeming her reputation when she appeared at Chilcott and gave that devastating account of what went on in cabinet during the approach to war. It was brilliant stuff for historians.
