Absorber: Britain’s self-sufficiency in energy is the best time to move away from the Saudi government. Due to declining oil prices due to declining demand as well as increased production, the use of hydro, wind and solar energy is expanding sharply, and the end of the fossil fuel era is near. Renewable energy will account for 30 percent of global electricity demand this year.

Under these circumstances, Britain set a new record in recent days, spending 18 days without the use of coal-fired power plants, and on April 20, set a new record in solar energy. Saudi-British relations are based on two factors: oil and Saudi Arabia’s willingness to buy weapons, and thousands of job opportunities in the UK depend on the same arms sales.

Many of these weapons were used in the Yemeni war, and in June last year, a British court ruled in favour of these arms stores.

Now, if we put aside oil and weapons, what will force Britain to continue its relations with Saudi Arabia, which is accused of suppressing and abusing human rights? What is often said to justify this relationship is Saudi Arabia’s intelligence cooperation with Western countries in the fight against terrorism, but this is a two-way street because the Saudi government faces its Sunni extremists and cannot satisfy its young people who want more open societies.

To attract. Saudi Arabia’s huge investment in British business is another pretext for relations with Riyadh, but the assassination of critical Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who is said to have been ordered by the Saudi Crown Prince, is a compelling reason to end the relationship.

Reducing demand for oil means that the Saudis are no longer that former power. Other oil sheikhs have neither time nor money.
