Nothing guarantees an improvement in morale quite like collective punishment!

Ask Qatar.

Interesting problem for the British Government. While it’s telling the world how much it loves Saudi, Qatar is the one with the gas that the FO has been sucking up to. Qatari nobles have been going to Sandhurst and traffic wardens have been told to ignore Qataris with no tax or insurance doing donuts in Knightsbridge (though one did give parking tickets to all their Lambos parked outside Harrods, lovely.)

It’s turning into a small scale repeat of 1914. We are pro-French! No, we are pro-German! No…oh shit.
