    An 80 minute interview Hariri gave to a tv station he owns didn't do anything to dispel the idea that he has been acting under his own will.

    Although its still a bit early for me to be proclaiming this sort of thing, it's increasingly looking like the Saudi strategy for Lebanon turned to shit straight away and they aren't going to get what they wanted. It's been a disaster in terms of international relations and their image, and the fact that even their allies in Lebanon couldn't stomach this approach adds to the sense that they've fucked it. Hariri is in Paris now and says he will be back in Lebanon on Wednesday so I guess we will see what happens then - political crisis certainly not over but I think the initial fears of war have receded significantly.

    So obviously overstretching and miscalculating on multiple fronts can't have done the crown princes reputation any good recently.

    Me thinks it a lot of hot air What is Vision 2030? What everyone should know about Saudi 'reforms'

    “The doubling of executions under the new Crown Prince reveals that, beneath his glossy public image, Mohammed bin Salman is one of the most brutal leaders in the Kingdom’s recent history. Protesters, including some who were children at the time, have had the death penalty confirmed despite allegations of torture and forced confessions. When she meets the Crown Prince, Theresa May should urge him to commute the sentences of all child protesters facing execution.”

    May has responded by emphasising to HRH Prince Mohammed that all child protestors facing execution should be allowed to commute where possible, and that if Corbyn were to win the next election then he would protest that all children should be executed. HRH Prince Mohammed nodded sagely.
