Hague in denial over arms sales to repressive regimes.

William Hague, the UK Foreign Secretary, has once again denied that the UK arms trade policy is deeply flawed. This is despite the fact that Britain’s ministry officials was actively promoting industry arms sales to the Qaddafi only days before Britain interfered allegedly in support of the democracy movement.

As well, the government has a long history of allowing, even supporting, arms sales to the Saudi dictatorship.

Liam Fox, the discredited UK Secretary of Defence, was a strong proponent of arms sales.
