Wee Willie Rennie : Cluster F****r

PMQs yesterday saw wee Willie Rennie (Libdem defence spokesperson) asking the Prime Minister:

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?

Willie should know all about cluster bomb manufacturing as a result of his association with Raytheon. He was a spin-merchant at McEwan Purvis who had the merchants of death Raytheon – the weapons manufacturer as their client. They make those indiscriminate cluster bombs. This is a picture of him taken at the weapons firm’s Scottish plant after he was elected.

Here is a picture of Willie meeting the boss of Raytheon taken from a press release drafted by his former workmates at McEwan Purvis. The F-18 pictured over Willie’s shoulder carries the very same cluster bombs. As you can see Willie is giving this death merchant a stern dressing down and urging him to support the UN/Red Cross call for a cluster bomb ban.
