    Blair and Reid on a mission to grab £40 billion Saudi arms deal

    The Guardian today reports that Blair and Reid have been trying to persuade the Saudis to buy £40 billion worth of arms from Britain:

    Defence, diplomatic and legal sources say negotiations are stalling because the Saudis are demanding three favours. These are that Britain should expel two anti-Saudi dissidents, Saad al-Faqih and Mohammed al-Masari; that British Airways should resume flights to Riyadh, currently cancelled through terrorism fears; and that a corruption investigation implicating the Saudi ruling family and BAE should be dropped. Crown prince Sultan's son-in-law, Prince Turki bin Nasr, is at the centre of a "slush fund" investigation by the Serious Fraud Office.
    No doubt Blair & Co will give in to these demands. See all recent "A Logical Voice" posts
