    Easter is only around the corner, on a Friday as always, this could be quite a good time.
    Should we be even speaking to these people? I see Obama is due to visit Saudi in a week or two.

    Interesting programme, certainly worth watching but not for those easily shocked, upset or have little knowledge about those nice Saudi people and their religious police.

    A spokeswoman said: "It is not good enough to merely criticise other countries from the sidelines.

    "Only by working with Saudi Arabia are we able to bring about the changes we would like to see in the country."

    strange how they never said that about a) the third reich, or b) the soviet union

    e2a: i wonder what the changes they would like to see in fact are, because from where i am it looks like they want to see 47 executed in one day

    Lord Rothermere and the Daily Mail certainly never wanted to help the Third Reich to become more moderate. He just wanted us to be more like them; and challenge those who: "exaggerated to give the impression that Nazi rule was a blood-thirsty tyranny."

    We must be careful with these people, we wantctheirccash for our guns and of course, their oil. The sooner we use more renewables and less oil the better.

    Well they're doing a marvellous job so far. In fact, since I started typing this sentence, Saudi Arabia has hardly executed anyone.

    Ramadan finishes on 5th July ( next Tuesday ). I suspect the executions will begin in Saudi and Indonesia soon after :mad::hmm:

    We must not do anything to upset the nice people of Saudi; we want thier oil and money for our arms, not forgetting someone to question our terrorist suspects.

    Boris Johnson's remarks about Saudi Arabia 'not the government's view'

    Whilst it it is nice to see Johnson criticising the Saudis I am finding it difficult to believe that he will have done it purely for altruistic purposes. More likely he sees it in some way as a means of positioning himself as an alternative to May.

    No surprises there, thanks the the nasty, capitalist, Tory party :(
    Could we send mother Theresa and Amber Rudd over their to live. 6 months should be enough to help them change their minds.

    No shit Sherlock

    Saudi Arabia has 'clear link' to UK extremism, report says - BBC News

    Though I am not much liking the source for this rather obvious news. The Henry Jackson Society could in it's own way be considered be considered extreme but I suppose it's respectable extremism so that's ok then.

    I hear those awfully nice people in Saudi are hoping to put another crowd of people to the sword, including someone who is disabled and in a wheelchair and someone who is a juvenile. Ed millibland has written to mother Theresa to request her intervention...that will do the trick no doubt :facepalm:

    You can certainly tell the strength of a nation by the way it murders people for possibly daring to question it :mad:
