There's nothing funny about human rights

Well, maybe... maybe not! I suppose it depends which humans' rights we're talking about.

Bangladeshi guest workers in Saudi Arabia?  And the fact that our BFFs in Riyadh spent billions on a fleet of Canadian-made armoured taxis to chauffeur them around... well, I thought it was funny at the time.

Especially funny that this armoured car deal was allowed to pass virtually without comment at the time.

What's not so funny is that it takes an election a year and a half later for the public to notice.
