Rarely seen and rarely heard - George Galloways's last intervention in Parliament was in January when he asked a question about Tony Blair (Prime Minister) visiting a hospital in his constituency without consulting him. A speech on Iraq at the time on Iraq has disappeared from his official website, but evidently the 52 year old and his glamorous Lebanese girlfriend Rima Husseini, 36, have been making hay whilst he is out of the sunlight - although as she is registered as his Parliamentary Secretary they must see a lot of each other - ah! the nimble fingers of a competent typist.
George already has a beautiful daughter, Lucy, 24 from his first marriage to glamorous Elaine Fyffe who has produced him two fine boucing grandchildren already.
The good news is of our hermitic revolutionary is that Rima gave birth last Sunday at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital in London at 12.20pm. to his first son - but the show must go on - by 7.15pm, the chirpy father and Bethnal Green and Bow MP was at the Hackney Empire for a Mother Of All Sundays billed as evening of pungent political commentary, debate, humour and verbal fireworks with George Galloway MP. The man who humbled the US Senate and now draws in a record audience for his radio phone-in show on TalkSport will be answering all the questions you throw at him during this special one man show - £15; £10 for students, unemployed, old age pensioners.
The Scots get a chance for this rib tickling reprise of the Archie Rice of Parliament at the Usher Hall in Edinburgh - 3rd of June 2007, and Glasgow - ROYAL CONCERT HALL (Strathclyde Suite) 10th of June 2007.

Lest anyone think that George Galloway doesn't earn his salary nor the mother of his child hers, consider this his last trenchant question in the House ;
