Galloway to sue ‘the bill’

Respect MP George Galloway is threatening to sue TV series The Bill, claiming that a corrupt politician was based on him. The action relates to programmes in which the character is accused of smuggling antiques and drugs from Iraq. He is also shown at an anti-racism concert — a real-life event held in Mr Galloway’s Bethnal Green constituency.
