Crown prince Mohammed bin Salman continued his arms and property shopping trip to Britain today. He met an arms broker to whom he gave an appreciative look.
Today is International Women’s Day. The Tories and associated charlatans are parrotting guff from the Saudi government about its alleged commitment to reform: A few women can now drive a car! All the helpers of the Saudi government’s marketing department know that the small changes to the country’s feudal laws are merely part of a smokescreen but they will keep repeating the PR in order to stifle and shut down debate about Saudi Arabia’s brutality. For example, Tory MP Helen Whately attended a jolly in May 2017 to Riyadh at the Saudi government’s expense as a “fact-finding” exercise. Yesterday, she opined:
The newest royal couple (Meghan and Harry) are celebrating International Women’s Day in Birmingham as part of an endless promotional tour for themselves ahead of their publicly funded wedding; simultaneously, their family members are greeting the mass murderer as an equal.
The obsequiousness of Tories, right-wing media and royals toward a brutal feudal dictator, who has an endless supply of unearned money, is a reminder that all are just gimps of financial gangsters.
