  1. Very wise.

    But the previous news item notes the call to avoid a "rush to judgement" on the issues concerning David Blunkett.

    In retrospect did not the confused nature of events in Iraq and the dynamics of the media create strong pressures for a rush to judgement about George Galloway?

    This is not a question for the government alone or for the media alone.

    In the case of George Galloway, while he may not always have been his own best lobbyist is it not possible that the way his case was handled in the Labour Party was influenced by the prejudices created by a rush to judgement, that the recent verdict has now established definitely occurred?
