To wonder why BoJo doesn't ask for protesters to amass against other atrocities while he is at it?

I must admit, the only politician I remember calling for protests on the street has been Erdogan. I thought it was unusual for a member of the government, in parliament, to call for people to amass in protest and ask where were 'stop the war'.
I then pondered on the fact he hasn't also asked for protests against the Saudis and their many human rights abuses and their murderous campaign in Yemen. And they are armed in this endeavour by the UK. Should BoJo have also asked for protests against this arming of SA by the UK? Something could be done about that straight away and it wouldn't involve members of the public just protesting.

Not for one minute lessening the horrible atrocities being carried out in Aleppo and Syria/Iraq.

Just Boris Johnson's lack of acknowledgment of what the gov't could do to alleviate the suffering in Yemen and maybe prevent the UK trade in weapons to such an extent. It is a filthy business.

I thought it was a stunning abdication of responsibility. Proof if ever needed that he is hopelessly out of his depth. Mind you he would be out of his depth with an etchasketch, let alone one of the great offices of state.
