Saudi Arabian snub of UN Security Council seat is right

Whinge at the Evening Standard about Saudi Arabia’s bare-face cheek and pretence at being a civilised country:


Saudi Arabia is absolutely right to snub an invitation to sit on the UN Security Council because of the UN’s failure to address issues like Syria, Palestine and nuclear proliferation.

But perhaps those issues are too big and complex for a large, unwieldy organisation like the UN? Maybe it should be addressing smaller, more easily solved problems.

Like human rights in Saudi Arabia.
