CHERYL GIBBS: Not a great film, but I still balled my eyes out

Have your say

Funny how Western leaders shed no tears for the people of the Middle East when a variety of despots held them down while supplying the West with oil.

Such leaders now blabber on about the sanctity of human life after being involved in the deaths of hundreds of thousands in Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine and, increasingly, Pakistan.

Meanwhile, our PM takes a tatty, repulsive coterie of arms dealers and other assorted rabble on his Rake’s Progress of the area.

After all, potential customers need guns, gas, personnel carriers and helicopters to maintain their lucrative positions that keep our banks well supplied with cash.
