Ban the sale of weapons to countries which are not democracies
As it has emerged that we licenced British arms manufacturers to sell weapons to Libya under Colonel Ghadaffi, it's clear that his play-play paper promise to never use them for repressing his own people was a lie - and more fool our government for believing him, if indeed they did actually believe him.

it seems like there are a few campaign suggestions around this issue.... can we try and tie them all together so that they have more impact or at least all vote for each others. Unfortunately I've just started yet another one..... Suggestions as to how we word this and pull our resources together????

let's go the whole hog and just stop selling weapons.

Baroness Elizabeth Symons used to be a Foreign Office minister. She sits of Libya's National Economic Development Board. She also sits on the board of MerchantBridge investment bank, as well as the Palestinian construction firm CCC UK. Nick Clegg's wife works for other middle-eastern and African dictators through law firm DLA Piper. They all have their fingers in the pie! Ladies? These women are no more than glamourous criminals and gangster's molls, with no honour or scruples! The weapons sale that they promote through these companies are used to kill and murder the most vulnerable people, who are simply fighting for the liberty and right to participate in their own lives. These women should hang their heads in shame!
