Britain is now the second biggest arms dealer in the world, official

government figures show – with most of the weapons fuelling deadly

Since 2010 Britain has also sold arms to 39 of the 51 countries ranked

“not free” on the Freedom House “Freedom in the world” report, and 22

of the 30 countries on the UK Government’s own human rights watch list.

A full two-thirds of UK weapons over this period were sold to Middle

Eastern countries, where instability has fed into increased risk of terror

threats to Britain and across the West.
