The Smoking Gun

British-made cluster bombs are being used by Saudi Arabia in Yemen.

That is now admitted by absolutely everyone.

Saudi Arabia is not poor. It is fabulously rich. Its British-made cluster bombs, in use in Yemen, are not from the 1980s.

On this country's absolutely toxic relationship with what is jointly the most repressive regime in the world, matched only by North Korea, Jeremy Corbyn has been right all along.

This needs to be brought back to the floor of the House of Commons as a matter of the utmost urgency.

The rather good Labour Chief Whip ought to publish in advance the list of MPs with leave of absence.

For anyone else, abstention this time ought to mean deselection in due season, and universal moral revulsion with immediate effect.
