MPs to ask firms to explain how UK taxes helped dictators build arsenals

What the hell was going on in the 80s and the 90s with the government flogging fighter jets and Land Rovers to people like Mugabe, even throwing in a knighthood and probably a Christmas card as well.

Warships and helicopters to Argentina - which were later used in the Falklands war - and Arms for oil with Saudi Arabia and military gear to Mubarak.

What on earth were the government of the day thinking of in authorising these sales and believing what Mugabe was saying about their end use.

And they used taxpayers money to fund all this!!! Shocking, absolutely shocking.
