Unless you can afford expensive legal fees it makes sense to back down when contacted by someone in George Galloway's office demanding an apology. Given the UK's libel laws which favour crooks and charlatans like the grossly corrupt former Labour MP who has extorted millions of pounds fraudulently through the libel system* there really isn't much alternative.
I never received any angry denials from them about this post, so I presume they must agree with me.
* I am referring to Robert Maxwell, who do you think I mean?
