Shame of bank tie to arms trade

At a time when rioters in England are being condemned and two people have been sentenced to four years for inciting riots, we read that Britain's leading banks are funding cluster-bomb manufacturers.

Such double-standards are sickening - yet the answer is that the manufacture of cluster bombs is profitable to large corporations and the rioting is a threat to those profits.

And there is the moral touchstone in all its hideous glory.


Hillsborough, Co Down
