There are three possible explanations for this from Owen Jones. He’s advocating a march on Downing Street to protest against the “Saudi Tyrant.” Owen Jones makes his living writing for The Guardian, a newspaper which happily runs advertisements lauding that same “tyrant.” Thus we’ve got those three possible explanations for this:

The proof of the Guardian taking the SaudiGeld is the image above.
And thus our three explanations. Owen Jones is more than a tad hypocritical to take his salary from those he insists are tyrants. Or Owen Jones doesn’t check matters before pontificating upon them. Or, finally, Owen Jones simply doesn’t understand how the world works – money has to go into The Guardian before it can be paid out to him.
Our own estimation is that third, just not understanding the world at all. It’s certainly the best explanation for the rest of his output anyway.
