Not a sausage

Two days after Easter Sunday, our ally Saudi Arabia crucified a man. 36 other men were executed.

A Lebanese journalist, Sarah Abdullah, tweeted: "Saudi Arabia dismembers a single Washington Post journalist -> the media completely loses it. Saudi Arabia mass-beheads 37 people, mostly from the repressed Shia minority, and put one of the bodies on public display -> the same media barely makes a peep.

Andrew Neil, in turn, then tweeted: "Sarah Abdullah has a point. Just looked at home pages of a few major Western news websites (US & UK). Not a sausage".

I looked at the home page of the BBC News website at the time of Andrew's tweet and guess what? Not a sausage.

That's not to say that the BBC didn't report it, because I heard them do so. But the difference in the scale of coverage remains striking. 


  1. Look at it this way: the Saudis and PC Globalists are, strange as it may seem, in bed together...well humping away actually.

    Remember the Saudis are one of the biggest contributors to the corrupt Clinton Foundation. A Saudi Huma Abedin is Hillary Clinton's closest advisor and support. Saudi and PC Globalist interests are closely intertwined through oil, media stakes, financial investments, money laundering, control of mosques in the West and other forms of corruption.

    From that point of view it would be surprising if much fuss was made.

  2. Jamal Khashoggi was one of them, that’s the difference .Same for Lyra McKee. Journalists are top of the pile.
