Why David Cameron should not promote the UK arms trade

“We have no evidence that British equipment has been used in the recent unrest in Libya.”
Downing Street spokesman

Perhaps Downing Street doesn’t have any evidence, but Amnesty International does. That’s an armoured car made by NMS International (Their website appears to have been locked, but here’s the homepage cache) They’re based near Coventry. Here’s a Youtube video of how their vehicle might be used.
“We do not sell material to other countries that is likely to be used for internal repression or to fuel regional or international conflicts, and we strictly apply those criteria.”
Foreign Secretary William Hague
