Krishnan Guru-Murthy interviews George Galloway and the man who campaigned to have him banned from Canada, Meir Weinsten. Watch the discussion.

Respect MP George Galloway vows to fight what he calls the "idiotic ruling" that has banned him from Canada on national security grounds.

Mr Galloway was due to give a speech to Toronto's Stop the War Coalition later this month.

But after an open letter of protest from Canada's Jewish Defence League, he has been declared "inadmissible" under the country's immigration act, which is designed to protect Canadians from anyone who funds, supports, or engages in terrorism.
