Need any more be said? Cameron’s refusal to condemn Saudi Arabia, while happily sending Britons to war against Daesh terrorists who do the same thing, is typical of two-faced Tory foreign policy.

David Cameron’s silence in the wake of Saudi Arabia’s execution of 47 prisoners, including a leading Shia cleric, that has sparked global outrage has been branded “utterly shameful”.

The Prime Minister has yet to comment publicly on the killings and human rights campaigners have urged him to condemn the mass killings.

The international human rights group Reprieve said the UK “must not turn a blind eye to such atrocities and must urgently appeal to the kingdom to change course”. The leading human rights campaigner Peter Tatchell said the UK Government’s stance on Saudi Arabia was “completely immoral”.

The kingdom has been widely condemned by the international community for executing scores of prisoners in Riyadh, Mecca, Medina and in the eastern and northern regions.
