A Foreign Office diplomat explained; ‘Bombing impoverished countries is not just for Christmas – we’ll be doing it all year round. Just think of us as Saudi Arabia’s ‘little helper’. And Human Rights Watch best not peek on Christmas Eve, just in case they spy Santa dropping BL-755 cluster bombs from his sleigh.’
