Boris Johnson’s £14k free trip to Saudi Arabia two weeks before Jamal Khashoggi murder

Boris Johnson went on a £14k all-expenses-paid trip to Saudi Arabia just days before they killed journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

The three day excursion was paid for directly by the troubled Kingdom’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

He flew into Jeddah on September 19 ten days before Khashoggi was killed by Saudi agents on October 2.

Mr Johnson told the Common’s anti-sleaze register that the lavish trip was for “meetings with regional figures to promote education for women and girls”.

    I’m unsure if Boris is stupid or if it’s a clown act to get away with telling Tory lies, as on the same show everybody made a fuss because he said Germany never used chemical weapons in wars in his bid to arm extremists in Syria against Assad, like how the whistle blower David Shayler told how Tories were funding Al Qaeda against Gaddafi, he said an even bigger lie on the same TV show that the media didn’t care about, because he said there wasn’t a vote on the 2nd war against Iraq, when more Tories voted yes to it than other Parties. He either doesn’t know what the party he belongs to does, or it’s an experiment to see if all most people really remember about politics is last Tory propaganda headline they read.
