UK Govt sides with Saudi Monarch in row over execution of activist

So, it seems that the UK government has sided with the Saudis, in accepting that a peaceful cleric who was put to death earlier this year was, in fact, a terrorist.

Philip Hammond, UK Secretary, seems to have aligned with the saudi governments claims that Al-Nimr, who it seems never called for violent action, but only peaceful opposition to the saudi regime, was a 'convicted terrorist'.


Considering this incident threatened to plunge the two biggest powers in the region, along with all their allies (which is the whole region) into a full-scale war, im shocked and the timidity of the UK Govt's response. When did the UK Govt become such a load of cowards? Not only do we not condemn what the despicable saudi regime did, we go so far as to support the bastards. Do they buy so many bullets and bombs from the UK that the UK cant dare to tell them they disagree?
