Who is really assisting the killing of the world’s Third World population? Yes, the United Kingdom:
A controversial deal with Saudi Arabia catapulted Britain to the top of the world arms export league last year, as UK firms won a record £10bn in orders from overseas, official figures show.
The figure amounts to a third of all worldwide export orders for military equipment, ministers and arms companies reported. An essentially political, government-to-government contract – the sale of 72 Eurofighter/Typhoon aircraft, for £4.4bn, to the Saudis – accounted for Britain’s number one position, the figures make clear.
