High Court says Tories can keep selling arms for Saudi Arabia to KILL innocent people

Thousands of civilians have died as a result of air strikes in the Yemen war [Image: EPA].

It’s good to know your judiciary has a solid immoral centre, isn’t it?

The judges said “closed material”, which had not been made public for national security reasons, “provides valuable additional support for the conclusion that the decisions taken by the secretary of state not to suspend or cancel arms sales to Saudi Arabia were rational”.

Do we believe them?

One wonders what this “closed material” was.

This Writer is much more inclined to agree with Rachael here:

Here’s the story, as the BBC reported it:

UK government arms sales to Saudi Arabia are lawful, the High Court has ruled, after seeing secret evidence.

The court rejected campaigners’ claims ministers were acting illegally by not suspending weapon sales to the kingdom, which is fighting a war in Yemen.

The UN claims strikes on Houthi rebels caused thousands of civilian deaths.

The government said defence exports would continue to be reviewed but the Campaign Against the Arms Trade said an appeal against the ruling was planned.

    I’m sure Boris is having a good laugh. This must be one of the most amoral governments ever, and now the judiciary back them up?

    The Cons reflect the dark globalist destabilising agenda …… with the added bonus of some much needed dosh for their arms manufacturers. As always with the Cons just follow the money. Also good to know that true honest justice has long gone and is now a thing of the past when judges were honest and true, not government puppets. The justice system in the UK can no longer be trusted with its scales that are now out of balance. Shame on the Cons and shame on the bent justice system….we are officially a police state.
