    One of the largest exporters to Iraq too, that's how we knew they had WMD, we checked the receipts
    The court heard Darren Upton had written a letter to Judge Sally Cahill QC saying he wasn’t “a typical inmate of prison”.

    But the judge said: “That simply demonstrates your arrogance continues. You are typical. Inmates of prison are people who are dishonest. You are a thoroughly dishonestly man motivated by your own selfish greed.”

    I'll take you down
    to that bright city mile
    there to powder your sweet face
    and paint on a smile,
    that will show all of the pleasures and none of the pain,
    when you join my explosion
    and play with my games.

    WarChild dance the days, and dance the nights away.

    No unconditional surrender; no armistice day ---
    each night I'll die in my contentment
    and lie in your grave.
    While you bring me water and I give you wine
    let me dance in your tea-cup and you shall swim in mine.

    WarChild dance the days, and dance the nights away.

    Open your windows
    and I'll walk through your doors.
    Let me live in your country
    let me sleep by your shores.

    WarChild dance the days, and dance the nights away

    UK would not have received that contract without bribes.

    I don't think UK has got any good weapons made for export anyway, Eurofighter is lost cause.

    Take the Eurofighter out of the equation and that'll leave one box of expired fireworks we managed to palm off to a bunch of terrorists somewhere.

    Still, we've got to stock up the enemy before we can have a go without looking like total bullies.
