Ethical bombs

A morally vacant cockweasel. It reminds me of BAE Systems' press release last year about lead-free bullets and low emissions grenades.

Whilst MPs publicly wring their hands over the ethical dilemmas in abortion and human genetic research, these same MPs let loons like Codner casually walk the corridors of government, lobbying for the arms industry - with nary a blink.

Foreign Secretary and South Shields MP David Miliband, who has managed to avoid showing his colours at the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Bill votes, has a chance to stake out the ethical high ground at the Dublin conference.

Will he be listening to arms establishment goons like Codner, or to the 30,000 people who signed up to stop the UK using cluster bombs?
