Annoying DESO and the Telegraph at the same time. by Chris

Its not everyday that you get to annoy the the government agency that promotes arms exports (DESO) and The Daily Telegraph at the same time. Today was DESO's annual 'symposium' (nothing as dull as a conference for them!) which we naturally picketed. Over the past year the organisation that I work for - Fellowship of Reconciliation - has been running a campaign to have DESO closed down and we, along with CAAT have collected over 10,000 signatures on a petition. So today was also a good day to hand it in to The Treasury where the continued existence of DESO is being questioned as part of the Comprehensive Spending Review. Did the Telegraph not like that!.
