Anna Stavrianakis is right to raise the moral bankruptcy of selling arms to countries implicated in war crimes in Yemen. This reveals the hypocrisy of the UK and the US. It is hard to believe that they have been moved by the brutal murder of the Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi while at the same time remaining blind to those emaciated, starved, victimised, forgotten and abandoned in an impoverished country on the verge of famine. History books will be harsh on us for failing to stave off such seething injustices.
