Noticeably, the EU is only suspending arms exports to Egypt and not imposing a “weapons embargo” (International, 22 August). Would we know, but for your report, the EU was exporting arms to a military dictatorship?
Doesn’t this exemplify “double standards” given the emphasis in Europe on democracy and human rights?
It is wrong to pursue democratic rights at home but not abroad, especially freedom and justice.
What would be the SNP’s view on EU membership if morality dictated conduct of foreign policy?
Recently analysts of the Yes and No campaigns despaired of a lack of a “new vision.”
Arguably a “new vision” should seek to put morality and justice first rather than power and national interests.
