This nasty salesroom is just the tip of the iceberg as to what us UK tax payers pay for. Do people believe that any of the African of Asian countries we sell arms to actually have to pay for them? It's much like us giving Tanzania £28M in aid and demanding that they spend £28M of it on a military air traffic control system (for their 4 jets) to secure 200 jobs for 1 year on the Isle of White. Maybe they could have spent it on making lots of clean water, or planting crops - but then what would be in it for us?

We pay for this vile shit. Us.
Probably more than on our own countries health care.

This has not one thing to do with defence, only with death, aggression (be it by us or by a proxy local force) and, most important, money (the diversion of tax money to politicians best friends the arms makers).

Fantastic respect to all who see through and oppose this sick 'trade'.
