I realize that a certain degree of 'realpolitik' and self-interest has to apply in our dealings with other countries, but I refuse to be complicit in my government's acceptance of Saudi Arabia's vengeful, mediaeval legal system, its treatment of women and foreign domestic workers, who are treated like slaves (see the recent case of the young Indian woman who had her hand cut off for rejecting the advances of her employer), and its imposition of the extreme Wahabi form of Islam on the entire population. Well done to Gove for withdrawing the 6m bid to 'advise' the Saudis on the running of their prisons; the less we have to do with them the better, and if that means fewer contracts for lethal weaponry with which to attack their enemies, then so be it.
