National Media Museum
Former Bradford West MP George Galloway will be back in the city this Monday for a special screening of his documentary ‘The Killings of Tony Blair’ at Picturehouse at the National Media Museum. To make the screening even more special for his former constituents, there’ll be a Q&A session about the making of the film, what drove him to create it and what it demonstrates about the state of politics today, led by Politics in the Pub’s own Dermot Bolton.
Thanks to Picturehouse, we’ve got two pairs of tickets to give away to friends of Politics in the Pub. To win a pair of tickets, simply comment on our Facebook thread with the question you’d like to ask George Galloway following the screening. Questions should be about the themes and topics of the film, such as Tony Blair’s time as prime minister, his decision to invade Iraq or his business dealings since leaving office. Dermot will select his two preferred questions and will contact the winners on Saturday morning. The winners will each receive two tickets for the screening on Monday 1st August at 8.30pm, and will be invited to ask their questions during the Q&A session.*
‘The Killings of Tony Blair’ is a feature-length documentary, co-written and presented by George Galloway, and combines testimony from prominent observers, ambassadors and statesmen to paint a vivid picture of Blair’s time in office and what he’s done since leaving Number 10, suggesting that his actions reveal “a messianic pursuit of personal glory and financial reward.” ‘The Killings of Tony Blair’ comes at an important, even chaotic, period in British and international politics, and is a “timely and thought-provoking exposé which denounces the corruption of the UK’s political elite,” exploring Blair’s premiership, his decision to join the American invasion of Iraq and his role as a peace envoy.
Tickets for this special showing on Monday 1st August at 20.30 can be purchased from Picturehouse at National Media Museum, online, or by calling 0871 902 5756 (calls cost 13p per minute plus your telephone company’s access charge).
*Dermot will choose the questions he thinks are most suitable and his decision is final.
