Keeping the sheep quiet, Saudi-style

I think someone's had a look at which way the wind's blowing, and decided he doesn't like it much.

So, he's keeping his people quiet and attached to the yoke of the State with "free" money. In case there is any doubt, he's buying off the people with $37bn of their own money, and it's going to work. Again.
"There will be extra funds for housing, studying abroad and social security, according to state television."
Generous. Goodness only knows where they'll find that.

Bet all the lady Saudis are delighted, as long as their male guardians allow them to have the money of course.
