    Death in Docklands, continued

    Not cosy when you realise that the nice company supplying information, publications and training to the education, science and health sectors, and running the LexisNexis Total Research System used by academics and legal professionals - also plays a significant role in the arms trade. Reed Elsevier is this week providing shiny new coursebooks to keen new schoolchildren, and through its subsidiary companies Reed Exhibitions and Spearhead Exhibitions, is also providing shining new weapons of torture and destruction to the world's political-military elite at the UK Government sponsored DSEi Arms Fair. I guess that makes them a very balanced company.

    Love and prayers to those who will be on the streets of Docklands this week protesting this awesome squandering of public money, human activity and civilian lives. Or at home writing to Jan Hommen, the Chairman of Reed Elsevier.
