Fact or Fiction?

"The gap between rich and poor in Britain today is wider that it was when Charles Dickens was chronicling Victorian England. That's a fact."
George Galloway, Question Time, 31 March 2005


Channel Four's election bullshit detector FactCheck.com finds that Galloway has no evidence to back up this statement.

This is just one example. There are more cases of Galloway being 'economical with the truth' right here on Respect Watch.

Take everything this man says with a big pinch of salt.
