    In support of the Saudis, I see several Arab nations have sent Iran to Coventry.

    Just seems an explanation of why they did it not a justification to me.

    Or, alternatively HMG former Saudi expert has just said a sizeable portion of SA is now dangerously close to "in for a penny, in for a pound"

    Last night I looked and failed to find any.

    Also: are the English-speaking media being squeamish about how the 47 were executed?

    Lovely. We are financially up against it and we want to unite our people and our allies and maybe even evoke another war which will be great for the cause and putting oil prices back up. THINKS! Lets execute someone we don't like to stir things up a bit.
    Aren't they doing enough as it is what with Yemen and Syria? sighs.

    Friday is execution day, so we'll see if last week was a one-off or the beginning of a new policy

    Corrupt politicians, excusing the inexcusable in the pursuit of profit since time immemorial.

    Saudi arms sales are in breach of international law, Britain is told

    Nevertheless I fully expect the government to prevaricate and generally drag their feet as much as possible over this.

    background article from September last year

    London's arms fair is privileging countries with the worst human rights records

    A Foreign Office minister has urged Saudi Arabia to make more of its human rights successes

    So the government have set up an enquiry to look into arms sales UK arms sales to Saudi Arabia face inquiry and high court legal action

    "The high court case brought by the Campaign Against Arms Trade (CAAT) calls for the government to suspend all current export licences and refuse all new licences to Saudi Arabia where it is possible the weapons could be used in Yemen, while the business secretary, Sajid Javid, reviews whether the sales are legal." :facepalm:

    Good on CAAT, cant see much coming of it mind Campaign Against Arms Trade
