£400 is a considerable sum for most people in the Yookay. You live in the Gulf too long - you become like the people in the Ritz Hotel. The tunbrils will be arriving soon !

Plenty of folks on BE offered to help out at the time though, free digs, transport, the works.

That's around a 1/3rd of the average monthly wage if you go by the figures released by the ONS, for full time employed. And about a months worth of effort from a part time employed..you know, for added perspective, whilst we wait for the tunbrils to arrive.

It only took 8 months, this bored alone offered them flights and accommodation.

Poor buggers dead and buried, I personally don't think we'll ever find out what happened to him.

It's less than a bottle of Belvedere in Mahiki Beach when you are smashed and everyone leaves you the bill as its your CC behind the bar

Fluffy, they don't "affect" your family though, they are cyber words. Ignore them. I admit that people spouting off about the cost of tickets is a bit off and just adds to the perception that the ME is full of rich tossers.

This isn't expatflange, we don't sugarcoat everything, cyber hug you and tell you its all okay.

We don't know what happened to Timmy. Suffice to say if team timmy came to Dubai expecting that some facetime with the local plod is going to bring answers, then I think you will be let down.

There is a whole big bad desert out there, whatever happened, whoever he pissed off, whatever...he aint coming back. Sorry and I wish and hope I'm wrong.

Have you ever got in a car and driven out to Hatta, RAK, over to Kalba..lots and lots of barren empty desert...
