Britain Takes a Stand

Three enemies of the people have ruled that the next prime minister of the United Kingdom broke the law in approving some of the country's arms exports to Her Majesty's Government's favourite fundamentalist head-choppers. Both the Imperial Haystack and Jeremy C Hunt, as well as the vole-brained former Minister for Werritty and others of doubtless equivalent adequacy for public office, signed off the sale of weapons to the House of Saud without troubling to assess the risk to civilians. In its capacity as a global leader for fairness and decency, the UK has responded to the Saudi assault on Yemen by having discreet words in Riyadh, while delicately backing up these hints by licensing almost £5000 million worth of weapons sales. Indeed, so appalled was Her Majesty's Government by the recent murder of a dissenting Saudi Arabian journalist that it applied no sanctions whatever. Since Hunt and Johnson both have better things to do at the moment, the vole-brained former Minister for Werritty was duly dispatched to announce that a similar attitude of entrepreneurial stoicism will, with the aid of the indulgent British taxpayer, be adopted in the present case.

    Yay! Britain stands with our Mango Menace and his Head Fluffalupgus in ensuring that the most important things are preserved: arms sales. Praise be the Name of the Profit!

    One simply marvels at the decency of it all. I'm only surprised we don't hear more from the NRA urging the right of Britons to defend their rented castles.
