the pro-Hamas deputy

is what Le Monde calls George Galloway, the newly elected MP for Blackburn Bradford West.  You can read the piece here if you are francophone.  Well, they're not wrong.  Back in his Gorgeous George Groucho Club days, Private Eye used to hint strongly that GG was at least bisexual.  Well, who knows, but Le Monde goes into some detail about GG's "conversion" to the Palestinian cause.  It describes the scene, in the Labour Party offices or headquarters in Dundee, where a young Palestinian student had come in for advice or discussions.  GG professed himself "hypnotised" by the young man, according to Le Monde.  Well, just saying.

It says "député pro-palestinien" now. Have they changed the headline? Could be in response to contact from his lawyers.

Yes it does. The website headline said "pro-Hamas" and still does, but the story headline got changed

Who cares - At least he didn't give up when they threw him out.
