Cameron is 100% wrong! Bahrain is worse than Syria. In Syria the resistance, some of whom are know terrorists and most are Soldiers for Hire, are supported through the back door by Britain, the US and Turkey. In Bahrain, the Saudis have sent in their army to help the dictatorship remain in power with widespread human rights violations and torture and nothing said by Britain nor any its allies, a sad state of affairs and rampant disregard for the principals which the West is defending in Syria. Mr Cameron is correct, Bahrain is not Syria, as far as human suffering goes it is worse!

I have to differ with the "Foreign Affairs Commitee"..
Bahrain has a nice shinning F1 Race Track. A boycott would
upset the money cart. The race must go on!
What about Exasperation and aggravation of the citizens of Bahrain.. Nada Amigo, that can wait, after the race.Once we
are safely home, then we will see what we can do.
Certainly before the next race!

Given that Force India was almost caught up in the violence when they tried to get from the track to their hotel and then decided to miss some of the practice out of safety fears the calls for a boycott are entirely understandable.
