George Galloway says he trusts Vladimir Putin more than Keir Starmer

George Galloway told Piers Morgan that he trusts Vladimir Putin more than Sir Keir Starmer.

The MP for Rochdale was challenged on his comments during an appearance on the presenter’s Uncensored show on Talk TV broadcast on Wednesday, 26 June.

Explaining his view, Mr Galloway said it was because he “doesn’t trust, automatically, any politician.”

Mr Morgan took issue with Mr Galloway’s comments, remarking: “You seem to have brought into Putin’s whole justification, as [Nigel] Farage has, ‘He was provoked. He had no option’.

“[Putin] will attack where he smells weakness.”
