Maverick British MP George Galloway has come under fire after reportedly claiming that a rape allegation against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange had no basis because having sex with a woman when she is asleep is not rape.
Mr Galloway's comments were made in a weekly online video broadcast presented by the MP for Bradford West in northern England.
