I'm currently waiting to hear from all six candidates in my constituency about a topic that much of the media have ignored during the election campaign - the government's subservience to the arms industry.
The Tory Shadow Defence Secretary, Liam Fox, has today attacked Nick Clegg's criticism of the Trident nuclear weapons system, insisting that Trident renewal is necessary because the country faces “real threats”.

The High Court has been asked not to grant approval for a Serious Fraud Office (SFO) settlement with the arms company BAE Systems. Campaigners want a judicial review of the SFO's decision to drop investigations into the company.
The Student Christian Movement (SCM) has welcomed the involvement of Christian students in a national day of action aimed at ending universities’ links with arms companies. They said "Jesus would oppose the arms trade”.
Students across the UK will stage a day of action today aimed at “kicking the arms trade off campus”. The last year has seen demonstrations and occupations in protest at universities’ links to arms companies.
