and make no difference, or be pragmatic and actually improve human rights?"
I want us to have high standards when it comes to foreign policy,rather than double standards. It wasn't that long ago that William Hague was encouraging British companies to pull their money out of Sudan.
It would be difficult to come up with anyone who has a worse human rights record than Omar al-Bashir. The International Criminal Court has issued a warrant for his arrest for war crimes, yet here is our Foreign Secretary, cosying up to him in the name of Trade. William Hague should be ashamed of himself, as should David Cameron for allowing him to welcome a Trade delegation from Bashir's regime.
