Saudi Arabia

Debate in the Lords last Monday on Saudi Arabia

Its not a subject frequently discussed, even though Saudi Arabia is an absolute hereditary dictatorship where there is no freedom of expression or assembly, no freedom of religion, harsh repression of women, widespread ill-treatment of migrant labour, arbitrary application of a particular variant of the Shari'a law, and frequent use of capital punishment.

We need to pay far greater attention to the use of Saudi oil billions to spread their pernicious ideology throughout the rest of the Islamic world.
