While this is all very interesting, it seems to This Writer that we all know another MP who appears to enjoy a favourable – and reciprocal – relationship with the Saudis.
Here he is now:
Conservative MP Rehman Chishti is calling for British troops to provide air cover to Saudi ground forces should they enter Syria. Meanwhile, according to parliamentary records, the MP for Gillingham and Rainham is being paid £2,000 a month as an adviser for the Riyadh-based King Faisal Centre for Research and Islamic Studies.
As Middle East Monitor reports, the institution’s Chairman is the ex-chief of Saudi Arabia’s intelligence services, Prince Turki Bin Al-Faisal. He served as intelligence chief from 1977-2001 and was known to bankroll jihadist groups in Afghanistan.
