To continue the “throwing away my tax money” theme, today the Grauniad brings the news that, in addition to subsidising inept computer companies, I’m also funding arms deals, or at least underwriting them. Fantastic – now I have to demonstrate against myself. It seems our pals in Whitehall have made guarantees to step in and pay BAe should the the rather shaky Saudi government default, renege or otherwise fail to stump up the cash.
Super. I’m off to burn an effigy of myself in disgust at my shameless warmongering, or something.
