May knows but will never be honest enough to admit that Brexit, far from being an opportunity for Britain to reap the harvest of international deals that folk are queuing up to make, is likely to be an economic disaster.
So she’s willing to toady up to any slimy foreign potentate willing to spend billions in the UK. No matter how nefarious the deeds, and the Yemeni war conducted by Saudi Arabia is fairly nefarious.
But Oor Theresa can turn a blind eye, because what do a few thousand lives lost abroad matter so long as the British arms industry can make a profit and pay their taxes to support May?
May shares responsibility for the human rights disaster in Yemen. She’s guilty as fuck.
