Jim McCluskey has had this letter published in the Richmond and Twickenham Times of 23 January 2015.

Sir – I find it intolerable that our MP Dr Cable persists in licensing the sale of vast amounts of arms to one of the world’s most vicious and merciless regimes, namely that of Saudi Arabia. It is further shaming these atrocious sales have been abetted by the royal family (in the form of Prince Charles) and our current political leader Mr Cameron. What sort of leadership is this?

This barbaric regime has just sentenced one of its citizens, Raif Badawi, to 10 years in jail and 1,000 lashes, 50 being inflicted every week.

Dr Cable’s arms shipments include weapons for subjugating the citizenry and keeping the vicious Saudi princes in power.

Dr Cable’s actions do not reflect the wishes of the people of Britain who oppose torture in all its forms. These shipments have got to stop.
