I don’t claim to be an expert at making political predictions. Some of my predictions have been woefully off-course. But yesterday (26 September) I made what must surely be the most precise political prediction of my life.
This week, I spoke about the arms trade at a fringe meeting at the Labour Party annual conference. I urged the Labour Party to move away from the enthusiasm for the arms trade that it has shown in the past and take a stand against the influence of arms companies within government.
Wherever you are, whatever you’re doing, however much time you’ve got, you can help to tackle the arms fair today. The most important thing you can do is simply to speak out by telling someone about the fair and why you oppose it.
