George Galloway’s new television talk show ‘The Real Deal’ kicked off on Monday promising hard no-holds barred debates and discussions.

Launched on Channel 187 on the Sky platform (Raj TV), the talk show will have Galloway live on air between 6pm and 7pm from Monday to Thursday, fearlessly expressing his opinions on news and current affairs, taking viewers’ calls as well as talking to studio guests.

Invited on to the first show was former Pakistani High Commissioner in Britain Wajid Shamsul Hasan.

Hasan condemned the recent violent suppression of anti-government demonstrations in Karachi which left 42 dead.

He also quashed rumours that former Pakistan Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, who had been forcibly exiled, had “cut a deal” with President Pervez Musharraf.

He said that Musharraf was on his “last legs” and revealed that Bhutto was hoping to return as leader with the possibility of striking a deal with Pakistan Muslim League (N) leader Nawaz Sharif.

The Tuesday show saw Galloway joined by Lebanese journalist Simon Asaf to discuss the Lebanese crisis.

Galloway also tabled a motion in the British Parliament this week calling for an immediate ceasefire around the Palestinian refugee camp of Nahr al-Bared in northern Lebanon. He warned that similar to last summer, Lebanon was in danger of being used by those who sought to further divide and weaken the Arab world.
