    Angry Detained In Dubai

    example of an Arab State's harsh punitive regime!

    ... y'know when I was a kid, there was a rhyme we used to chant, viz:-

    "Sticks & "stones may break my bones
    But ... ... names will never harm me".

    Sadly, that's ^ fast
    becoming a thing of the past even here in - thanks, need I say, to politically correct thinking on the part of modern governments which frown upon free speech by [ordinarily] law-abiding citizens.

    Firstly, Dubai/UAE is a very good CUSTOMER of the UK... and that is probably the only reason why this and so many of the Arab/Gulf OIL States, and their medieval practices are tolerated at all by civilised countries.

    So, despite what the FCO may be stating publicly, I can't see them doing much to upset the UAE rulers, by defending this rather (IMO) stupid woman.
