Merchant of death

Our Prime Minister, the arms salesman:
David Cameron has mounted a strong defence of his decision to travel to Japan with some of Britain's leading weapons manufacturers as Downing Street seeks to exploit a multibillion-pound market after a liberalising of Tokyo's procurement rules.
As he flew to Japan overnight, the prime minister said he was "up front" about the "perfectly responsible and respectable" decision to travel with executives from six defence contractors, including BAE Systems and AgustaWestland.
Don't you feel proud?
