I could be wrong, but I had the distinct impression that Galloway's speech 
to the committee was delivered on the spot and without notes, although it 
is obvious that this is material that he knows like the back of his hand. I 
state this on the basis that his eyes never looked downwards at a paper. If 
this is the case, then this is a skill that radicals have to learn. Very, 
very impressive.
