well lets look at it case by case.
if we don't supply the Saudis with arms, do you really believe no one else will.(rhetorical question, won't bother with a question mark).
british economy would get poorer, less money for good works.
would you rather have the royal family arseholes, or the radical islam arseholes in charge?
that's the only realistic option at this point. THeres not a great deal of incentive for us to destabilise the oppressor, change one gang of head choppers for another.
you might want there to be a different situation, but the only people who can change the rules of this game are the Saudi people themselves.
its not like South Africa - there will be no overnight resolution.
this is a situation we have to live with.
if the Saudis wanted strawberries - we'd try to sell them that.
at the moment , they want arms. we are a trading nation.
its not what we want - its how it is.
