Scotsman.com News - Politics - Merc causes Galloway launch to stall
: "GEORGE Galloway’s attack on the government’s 'obliteration' of home-grown car manufacturers backfired yesterday when he was forced to admit he drove a Mercedes.
At the launch of his anti-war party Respect’s election campaign, Mr Galloway decried 'the destruction of British manufacturing' and the demise of MG Rover.
Asked by The Scotsman why he drove a Mercedes if he felt so passionately about MG Rover and the potential axing of 6,000 jobs at Longbridge, Mr Galloway replied: 'I drive a Mercedes because there is no Rover equivalent for the tasks my Mercedes has to perform. I wish there was.'
Mr Galloway, who was expelled from the Labour Party, drives an S-class model with cream leather interior. He had left a cigar in the parked car’s ashtray while he wooed the media in London yesterday."
