    In my experience, working in electronics, it would seem the majority of the manufacturing and design work being undertaken in the UK supports the hi tech weapons trade. From a taxation point of view, these jobs pay back into the coffers of the state. I think our foreign policy, however morally bankrupt, to be at war continually keeps people in work. The UK’s investment in the latest weapons technology and the sale of proven older technologies to warring countries is big business and the UK profits from this.
