The Saudi Arabian football team were booed by Australian supporters after they failed to properly line up for a minute's silence in honour of the victims of the London Bridge terror attacks. Saudi Arabia were preparing to play Australia in a World Cup qualifier at the Adelaide Oval when the stadium announcer called for a minute's silence to begin. The Australia team linked arms in a line on the centre circle while the Saudi Arabia team stood in random formation as the silence began.
The Football Federation of Australia were then unable to persuade Saudi Arabian officials to agree to participate in the tribute.

I forgot, is Australia so far east we call it west ? Or is this like the token inclusion of a very westernized way off in the South east nation.
Making Saudi Arabia, which has the worst human rights on record of ANY country in the world, and then VOTE them in to be in charge of WOMEN'S RIGHTS at the United Nations....well they have just given...by this simple act of defiance, a very large middle finger salute to the rest of us!
