Who's Counting?

There seems to have been a bit of a breach in the Britishness of Her Majesty's Government's Yemen policy, which has thus far combined the genocidal profiteering of the East India Company with the mean-spirited charity of the municipal workhouse. The Ministry for Wogs, Beads and Trinkets is efficientising its handout by sixty per cent, and has compensated with a liberal dose of hand-wringing from the Minister for Misnomer, James Cleverly, whose doubtless sincere heartbreak at the likely terrible consequences seems to have left him as well-fed and salaried as ever. More significantly, Her Majesty's Government has carried out no impact assessment for the likely effects of the cut; which is a little disturbing given the need to ensure that the glorious deeds of Whitehall's favourite fundamentalist head-choppers in the arms-buying House of Saud are duly and properly recorded for future customers.
