Jonathan Aitken, a former defence procurement minister, has been charged with perjury and other offences, following a libel case involving allegations connected with arms sales to Saudi Arabia. British-made armoured cars have been involved in internal repression on the streets of Indonesia—another important arms customer. George Bernard Shaw’s Major Barbara is being staged again.
