Pride's Purge

(not satire – it’s the UK today!)

In the light of Saudi Arabia’s decision to publicly flog a blogger a thousand times for being too liberal, here’s an interesting extract from a recent document* by the UK’s National Offender Management Service (my highlights):

MoJ Saudi 1

How exactly, I wonder, is the UK prison service going to help with the training of the Saudi Prison Service?

Teach them how to flog and behead people in public?

And without any apparent trace of irony – two paragraphs below the one describing how the UK is going to help the Saudis out with their floggings and beheadings – we find this one:

MoJ Saudi 2

.

Perhaps when the Ministry of Justice talks about the “depth and adaptability of the UK legal system” – it’s referring to the “depth and adaptability of the UK legal system” to now sell itself off to the highest bidder?
