Thank goodness for you and you're all-knowing mind.
I know you don't like me, Scamp, but for the sake of appearances try not to be so childish about it.

Hey, we all have to call out bullshit when we see it. You can't act like some sort of great mind and authority whilst using phrases like 'Wuhan lab bat flu'.

My advice would be to pick. Either be funny, annoying (devilishly good looking) and rarely taken seriously like me or try and be sensible, informed and reasonable.

No humour allowed, even if the former head of MI6 claimed it and both EU and US have criticised the Chinese for being deliberately vague and obstructing the search for the origin of the virus.

It's a question a lot of us have, be it for Saudi, Qatar or elsewhere. I'm not sure what restrictions are in place on entry to Kuwait, Bahrain, UAE or Oman. A sensible guess might suggest another 2-3 months based on the rate of progress. Unless you have the appropriate wasta to get admitted any time sooner.

Things opening up for Dubai. Maybe a sign of what other places in the region might do. Maybe not.

Hang on a minute, a few months ago you were saying you wanted to leave and get a repatriation flight......

What's your situation re salary? We've got one guy who is stuck in the US. They paid him until his vacation allowance was used and then stopped paying him, but I believe he can still come back without any problems reentry wise.

1st October 2020 appears to be the current plan although I've never heard of a Saudi project respecting the plan
