    So going by some of the comments here we should be polite and respectful if a foreign ruler passes away...despite their human rights record. What a load of tosh...we are brown nosing to somebody who did little to progress the rights of his citizens, who beheaded more people than you can shake a stick at and whose rule of law is as draconian as you can get. All this because of oil and arms...the UK government may be acting in the best interests of the country but it is displaying a complete lack of moral integrity !

    The respect and support shown by the government and people of Britain is a show of a civilized nation that has stood by the principle of bringing unity within the international community.
    King Abdullah was loved by his people. He was very close to us and he wanted to bring a positive change in this country in defiance of the many forces that worked against his will.
    Thank you for your condolences and for using your right to vote so responsibly.

    It is a symbol of sympathy and Saudi Arabia is a very important country. I believe UK should maintain a strong relationship with Saudis.

    I proudly respect lowering the flag and find it so touching and genuine.. It is paying a respect to a country. If a ruler in any other country passed away Saudis or any country should pay its respect. The fact of situations occurring in one country should be respected and understand that it is their belief whether we agree or not. Find peace and stop being hipicrit.. There is consequences all around the world with every countries rules and regulation. If ones disrespected it they would get punished for it. We judge as a perspective but not think how corrupt it is by taking opinion and leading to chaios. Then let's all be rulers.. Aren't we all at home! How do u know if someone else is judging you and ur actions toward ur lifestyle or the way u talk to ur parents or kids.. Nothing impresses anyone now a days. Have love and respect there are bigger issues going around these days and disrespecting a country and paying consequences isn't the main one.
    Women are rapped in africa kids too. You've got sentence deaths in the usa. Pollution and toxicication world wide.. But above all we do pay our respects! Thank you United Kingdom !

    Craven and disgraceful! An extreme form of Islam, Wahabism, spread and financed by Saudi money has poisoned and radicalised Muslims all over the world. Most 9/11 perpetrators were Saudis, Osama bin Laden is Saudi, Saudi money financed ISIL. The Saudi Royal family should be put on trial, not honoured.No more need to be said.
