Tess held talks inside Downing Street with Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman. Hundreds gathered outside to protest at the meeting but somehow on this occasion Tess didn’t go along with The Will Of The People.
The protesters chanted “Hands off Yemen – stop the bombing now” and “Stop the killing” as they demanded the UK halt arms sales to the Gulf state, which has been criticised over its bombing campaign in Yemen. The conflict has, so far, resulted in the deaths of at least 10,000 people.
To demonstrate further her total disregard for The Will Of The People Tess has agreed to further talks with the Saudi leader at Chequers tomorrow, with the Crown Prince also set to meet the Queen, Prince Charles and Prince William during his three-day visit.
In a rather pathetic attempt to justify her appalling decision to entertain him, No. 10 claimed Tess had raised the issue of human rights and the situation in Yemen with the Crown Prince.
A Downing Street spokesperson said: “The Prime Minister welcomed recent reforms in Saudi Arabia, including on women attending sporting events and the cinema, and being legally able to drive from June.”
They would also like us to believe; “The Prime Minister raised our deep concerns at the humanitarian situation in Yemen. The Prime Minister and Crown Prince agreed on the importance of full and unfettered humanitarian and commercial access, including through the ports, and that a political solution was ultimately the only way to end the conflict and humanitarian suffering in Yemen.”
