Ban the bombs I helped sell!

This weeks's PMQ's were full of Fibdem screamers! Willie Rennie (Libdem defence spokesperson) did not want to be outdone by his leader, so he decided to get in on the fibbing. He asked the Prime Minister:

Willie Rennie (Dunfermline and West Fife) (LD): After the conflict ended, cluster bombs used in Lebanon by Israel had resulted in 159 casualties, including 23 deaths so far. In Geneva last week, why did the UK not support calls from the UN Secretary-General, the International Committee of the Red Cross and 27 nations for urgent action? In Oslo next year, will the Prime Minister push for a ban on those indiscriminate bombs, or does he agree with the Minister of State, Ministry of Defence, who has responsibility for the armed forces, who strongly advocates the use of such bombs?

Perhaps he should have declared an interest. Faithful readers will be aware we flagged up Wil-lie's past before and his association with Raytheon. He was a top PR man at McEwan Purvis who had the merchants of death as their client. Yes, it is the Raytheon - the weapons manufacturer. Looks like Oor'Willie is not only a political opportunist but the worst kind of hypocrite seeing as Raytheon is a proud manufacturer of, you guessed it, CLUSTER BOMBS.

You can see also see Willie meeting the Acting Director of Raytheon right here in a press release drafted by none other than McEwan Purvis! Of course he went to the factory in his capacity as a new MP. (Note the picture of the F-18 that carries the very same cluster bomb below. Also his ol'workmate's email address at the top. Willie, Willie, Willie, we couldn't even make this stuff up.)

Is there no depth-charge to which two-faced fibbers will sink?

Willie assured the Fib's that his PMQ would blow them all away

Cheers for that,what a buck tooth feckin hypocrite,mair faces than the toon clock.
another favoured son. given this was a by election seat i am surprised noone brought this up before? surely it wouldn't have gone down too well with the voters.
