Blogger Sunny Hundal on Raif Badawi in Saudi Arabia

21 January 2015 Last updated at 11:30 GMT

Blogger Raif Badawi has been sentenced to 10 years in prison and 1,000 lashes for criticising Saudi Arabian clerics on his internet blog.

British blogger Sunny Hundal said this case, and others like it, mean the UK should stop "hugging" the Saudi regime.

In a personal film, he said it was time for the UK to cut these ties and "treat the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia with the contempt it deserves".

He debates this film with Conservative George Eustice and Labour's Sadiq Khan on Wednesday's Daily Politics with the full programme on iPlayer for 30 days.
