Reply I am very much ashamed of the UK and specially Mr David Cameron for selling arms to the Saudis. We should aim to stop Wars and not encourage it. What a bunch of hypocrites we have in the UK. Shame on these politicians who encourage this. Reply yes we need to name and shame those we can access who blithely see arms sales as business as usual Reply What about UK selling arms to Israel aswell?
