'Bahrain is a stalwart friend of the West. It’s the headquarters of America’s 5th Fleet. It’s a liberal and tolerant quasi-democracy.’
David Mellor, the former Tory Minister says it like it is for the Con Dem government.
The bullets used to shoot the democracy protesters are British.
The British Arms trade is profitable, the dictators support the USA, so its Ok!
At least the arms exports licences have been revoked for Bahrain but what about super repressers Saudi Arabia, armed to the teeth by Britain as they kill women for adultary and imprison members of the LGBT community.
The law on bribery was over turned to help arms exports to Saudi and I predict that if democracy comes to Bahrain, the Saudi's will invade and the US and UK will support them.
