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 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”.
Two members of the Catholic Worker movement, including a priest, have been arrested at the London arms fair. They poured red paint over an entrance sign before kneeling in prayer beneath a banner asking God to forgive arms dealers.
London’s arms fair has opened this morning to a wave of protest and criticism. Protestors have demonstrated both outside the fair and at the offices of UKTI, the government unit through which the arms fair is subsidised.
