'REBEL Labour MP George Galloway last night insisted he was innocent after it was revealed a dirty tricks scam was used to frame him for taking money from Saddam Hussein. Papers offered for sale in Baghdad were said to prove the Glasgow MP took millions of pounds for supporting the Iraqi dictator. But the documents, offered by former Republican Guard General Salah Abdel Rasool, contain obvious mistakes. A scrawl claimed to be Mr Galloway's signature on "receipts" has no similarity to his real one.'

The possibility that the documents were forged, how and by who they were forged, to frame Galloway is a real story but one doubts it will get the coverage that the original allegations received. As they say, mud sticks.
