Have suspended arms sales to Egypt. Bit late now, one might argue, but better than nothing. The UK on the other hand has not, probably due to our sales to Egypt being worth millions of pounds, and sales to the region being worth far more.
If the Blair/Brown governments were bad, then a new adjective should be created for the current one. I hand the floor to Gerald Howarth MP:
"This government has been very clear from the outset and so have I: we are proud to support the biggest defence exports drive in decades"
