Anyone with their finger on the pulse of current affairs will have noticed there’s something quite momentous occurring in other parts of the world: people are rising up and revolting against their dictators. The response of said leaders has ranged from reasonably mild, to all out bloodshed. So it’s heartening to know that Britain is capitalising on the situation by flogging its military wares to oppressive regimes! Shortly after the Egyptian people ousted Mubarak, Cameron popped over to the Middle East with a team of arms salesmen, to promote British hardware and try to flog some more trinkets (ammunition, pepper spray, tear gas, and fire arms) to our friends in the Middle East and North Africa. But don’t worry, Britain has some tough export rules, which ensure that our weapons don’t end up in the wrong hands.
