George Galloway: 'Time for Britain to Say Goodbye to European Union'

George Galloway: "Time for Britain to Say Goodbye to European Union"
On today's episode of Loud & Clear, host Brian Becker is joined by legendary British parliamentarian and London mayoral candidate George Galloway to talk about why he favors Britain's exit from The European Union.

Galloway argues that the EU is now an anti-democratic project of finance capitalism pursuing a policy of neo-liberalism that attacks the living standards of working class people while tying Europe's foreign policy to Washington's imperial designs. A referendum in Britain is likely in June 2016 that will voters the chance to answer the question: should Britain stay or leave the EU?

In the second segment, Becker is joined by author and professor Ghada Talhami to discuss why Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has called a French proposal for peace talks with Palestinian leaders "baffling." Talhami dissects Israel's political and military orientation, French motives for this new initiative and the orientation of the Obama Administration.

Finally, Becker is joined by Daniel McAdams, the executive director of the Ron Paul Institute for Peace & Prosperity, to discuss what's behind the political turmoil in Ukraine nearly two years after the coup that overthrew Viktor Yanukovych. Ukraine's new government is in turmoil as politicians and oligarchs turn on each other. With the fighting picking up again in the eastern part of the country and the International Monetary Fund holding billions in funds meant for Ukraine, is Ukraine imploding?
