United front on Saudis needed

Published 08/01/2016

The main reason why David Cameron is silent about the human rights violations of Saudi Arabia is there might be serious economic consequences for us if he spoke out. Our Government could work with America, France and other allies who sell arms to Saudi Arabia and take a united, stand on human rights - probably with little fear of retribution.
