Sir: It takes the threatened beheading and lashing of British nurses to put the human rights abuses of Saudi Arabia on the front pages. And yet this sort of thing is a weekly occurrence in that country.

Why is a country with such an appalling record of human rights abuse an ally of Britain? Isn't it time that Britain and America treated Saudi Arabia in the same way as they claim to treat other countries which practise major human rights abuses?
