It was a very interesting documentary and sums how I felt about the place and his conclusion was spot on.

The government have spoilt their people rotten to the extent that when the oil runs out and the natives will be forced to work, they will struggle.

Sorry but I cannot view You Tube from my office computer, so please explain who Frank Gardiner is and why he is returning to the Magic Kingdom.

We've* downloaded that programme but haven't watched it yet. I assume it's worth seeing?


Mentalist. Do you never read newspapers or pay attention to any world events? You never seem to have heard of anyone. Surely you must have heard of this resource everyone else uses called Google.

Quote from the Wikipedia entry:

"The Saudi Arabian government had forced Gardner to use official minders, who ran away once the firing started."
