What I do know is its been done before so it wouldnt surprise me and that the internal politics are so complicated and convoluted that again it wouldnt surprise me if it had taken months to sort out.
last time you got an inkling as they changed them all around on the council, did new rules etc and then announced it.

Rumour I've heard from a workmate's wife who is an ARN presenter is that he is being kept 'alive' on a ventilator until Ramadan as it's more auspicious to die then. 10 days off for public sector in AD but only 3 in Dubai.

I'd be more worried about putting this stuff on a public forum considering the privacy laws here.

A couple of months ago, a local at one of the stables here was telling some expats I know to not bother coming up for the next few days as a big announcement was coming.

I sometimes wonder if they do it just to have a laugh at the expat community here.

I have it on good authority that somebody important, in some important location will die at some point in the future, but don't go spreading that around, because only I am supposed to know this highly confidential information.
