Default Qatar is buying the UK?

Apparently Qatar is thinking about investing 'heavily' in UK infrastructure. This rallied the pound. Good eh?

Default Re: Qatar is buying the UK?

Having spent 2 years in Qatar, I'd have to say that Qatar's understanding of the concept of infrastructure is limited at best.

I would question, who are they buying it from??

Because very little of it is British owned.
