    - Simon Armitage: from Tyrannosaurus Rex Versus the Corduroy Kid.

    This poem seems particularly pertinent in the week the government forced the decision to end the Serious Fraud Office investigation into allegations of corruption around the sale of military equipment by BAE Systems to Saudi Arabia. Another instance in a long line of Government arms trade corruption. Good on CAAT and The Corner House who are considering a legal action against the Attorney General.
