Sky News takes part in a joint investigation with The Guardian, Bellingcat and Lighthouse Reports.
Ooh! Is it into government incompetence?
UK-made anti-riot gear has been widely used in America during clashes with Black Lives Matter protesters, despite the government's claim there is "no evidence" British equipment was used, Sky News has found.
Oh, wait! Is it illegal?
There is no suggestion of wrongdoing by DMS Plastics, which manufactures the shields, which are a form of personal protection equipment, and sold them legally to a US distributor.
Well, imagine my baffled face then...
Emily Thornberry, the shadow trade secretary, says the review is not robust: "We should have done a proper review and we should have stopped it." She adds: "You're not allowed to sell riot equipment if it is being used for internal repression. So then the question is: What is internal repression?"
Why are you asking, Emily? Shouldn't you know?
"Well, internal repression is unlawfully hitting people, let's say, a cancer victim with a stick, it is attacking members of the press, it is using unlawful violence, it is using it in order to suppress legitimate, lawful demonstrations."
And suppressing legitimate lawful demonstrations is something Labour never did when in power, right..?
The Black Lives Matter protests that have taken place since the end of May have been widely peaceful.
