    Forget the sash, wasn’t this hypocrite on a mission to the UAE to sell war machines whilst wearing a poppy?

  3. Selling arms to countries like Saudi Arabia and UAE should only be considered if there are absolutely watertight guarantees over them not being used to commit human rights violations.

    If any such guarantees are forthcoming, they seem unlikely to be worth the paper they are written on.

    As Amnesty has already noted:

    “… in 2009 the Saudi air force used UK-supplied Tornado fighter-bombers in attacks in Yemen which killed hundreds – possibly thousands – of civilians. In one attack conducted by Saudi forces on the town of al-Nadir in November 2009, so many were killed in just one extended family that witnesses say the family ‘had to create a cemetery for themselves’.

    “More than two years ago we called for the UK government to urgently investigate Saudi Arabia’s involvement in this episode and meanwhile suspend any further arms supplies to Saudi Arabia.

    “In the past a large Saudi chequebook has apparently meant it could purchase weapons as well as silence over its own dreadful human rights record. It’s time for David Cameron to end this deeply disturbing trade-off.”

    “Good thinking, Al Cameron, now no-one can steal coat off your back.”

    I am still puzzling over Patrick Corrigan’s comments as I am having difficulty conceiving ofany weapon being employed against a human being that would not infringe his right to life and limb. Well, excluding a bolster waged in a pillow fight I suppose.
