George Galloway, a pro-Arab member of the British Parliament, was ousted by fellow contestants from the "celebrity" version of Channel 4's Big Brother Wednesday. His appearance on the program had raised a political outcry, with detractors charging that by spending time in the Big Brother house, he was neglecting his lawmaking duties. Galloway had responded that the show would provide him with a large audience for his controversial views. "I don't normally lose elections, and this was a big one," Galloway told Channel 4 afterwards. Earlier in the day, the London Sun published photos of Galloway meeting Saddam Hussein's son Uday in 1991 and allegedly telling him, "We are with you 'til the end."
