Forewarned is forearmed and all that.

They won't boot the operator straight away - but almost all partnerships between local and western companies self implode.

yeh i realize that. Im sure they'll want us to train cheaper labor to do the job at some point and the whole thing will be completely run by emeraties.

They better pay me well or else i aint staying! ive got a comfortable life at home and it has to be something special for me to give that up!

Mirfa, as appealing as drinking from the communal toilet drain in a Bangladeshi slum

that sounds a VERY ballsy move hutch

If I were you I'd come out first and see how it goes

who is paying the school fees? That'll be a big cost

Wise up b4 you get here. I get so sick of people moving here then complaining. It's all there on the interweb if you can be @rsed to look. If you can't be @rsed then suck it up tbh...
