Putting UN Human Rights in the hands of Saudi Arabia is like, well...putting UN Human rights in the hands of Saudi Arabia. What can you say ? Not much. Another good reason though to set up a Democratic Union of states where elections are freely held ( for both genders and all political persuasions ) and where there is total freedom of expression. We can still go and have a laugh at the UN's collection of dictatorships whilst at the same time defending and promoting as a block proper civilised governance.
It is being said that machinations of the British Foreign Office played a major part in securing Saudi Arabia's take over of Human Rights. Nothing to be very proud of even if it boosts our sales of torture, crowd control and general wipe-out kit.
