Controversial comments will be on agenda as MP George Galloway addresses Muslim women's group
George Galloway will face an audience of Muslim women tomorrow to explain his controversial comments about rape and disabled people as well as his performance as MP for Bradford West.
Mr Galloway caused outrage last month with his podcast comments about the case of Wikileaks campaigner Julian Assange, who is facing rape allegations in Sweden.
The Respect MP sparked the backlash by claiming the substance of the allegations against Mr Assange amounted to no more than "bad sexual etiquette”.
And he was forced to apologise after using the offensive term "window-licker” in a heated Twitter exchange. He later said he had used the term without realising its significance after being "relentlessly taunted” by a "bigoted, sectarian Rangers supporter”.
Tomorrow’s invitation-only Bradford Circle event, organised Bradford Muslim Women’s Council, will see Mr Galloway addressing an audience of women, who are credited with helping the MP win his seat in Parliament at a by-election in March. (...)
