I thought is was cheap journalism. Her comment about the Creek revealed that she hasnt even been there and seen the trading Dhows and the busy and vibrant activity of the Abra's. She had it seems only been round on the tourist bus. I really hope she didn't get paid a big fee for that article.

True - she seems to have missed that part, however she's hit the nail about one thing:

"Though in Dubai you are surrounded by the poor, who labour on every building site, clean the streets and the houses, and wait on the children, they are as invisible as the plumbing. Here, there is no subsistence; here there is only shopping."
