Boris Johnson is wrong about a very great deal.
But he is right about Saudi Arabia, and about this country's poisonous relationship with what is jointly the most repressive regime in the world, equalled only by North Korea.
He deserves respect for having spoken out, even if he has spoken out of turn as Foreign Secretary.
But he would deserve far more if he resigned, and then dedicated his political life, beyond constituency duties, to campaigning on these issues.
