Default Violence in Dubai...Your Thoughts please.

Hi Again.

Last night after the football i was talking to a friend of a friend and was telling him of our plans to move over to Dubai.

He told me that his mums sister lived in Dubai but had to move away last year due to the violence in the country, Shootings, Beatings, muggings theft

not sure really where she lived but just thought I would ask if anyone had heard of any similar stories. Obviously its not the sort of thing you want to hear.

Cheers
Tom

I doubt I have lived in a safer place (apart from the risk from idiot drivers)

It'd be interesting to find out where she has been living then...Darfur perhaps...

I agree with you that there should be more violence and that it should be vertically integrated.

There should be child beatings - for no reason -(particularly on my children) and trans gender slapping, duel by driving, pan racial panning, pub brawls, aircraft carrier battles and nuclear war. Dubai always does it better. We should have slogans on the airplanes and options for canibalism or just vegetarian outcomes. There should be a no smoking section on the battlefield.

Does that answer your request for info?

Don't give up the day job when applying to be the Professor of English is my advice. I accept that literacy is not compulsory so perhaps I am just being discriminatory.

Two issues with that.

1. You are telling me there is internet in Derbyshire?

2. You are telling me there is work in Derbyshire.

Jeez, the world has changed.

The "guy"? I thought it was your mum's sister.........

Mind you, if your auntie had balls she'd be your uncle - or whatever the expression is.........

And Old Lob is back - the second best piece of news I've heard tonight......

How's the Juxtaposition Tavern?

Yes I agree with your friend's friend, there is simply too much violence here in Dubai...every day we hear about robberies, beatings, rapes, car-jacking and worse. If I were you, I would go to Durban instead, much safer...
