4 years is standard. They will stay in until Ramadan 2014 then get a pardon and deported. (least that's how it worked in AD) Silly boys.

A year and a half of testicle zapping.

The zapper is the only thing that will be touching their testicles for a while...............I am sure some people would pay good money for a 'zapping' session.

Reckon they'll be out this summer.

UK will find it hard putting pressure on the visiting Sheikh Nayhan as he is soooo cool with his little fuzzy moustache. Best Sheikh by far. Cultured chap. Always smiling and schmoozing. He's a dude-and-a-half. Nation's fun uncle.

You are probably right. Just bothered to read it, They have been banged up for 10 months already so this Ramadan seems about right.

What happened to the Arse pincher? That story disappeared?

Well they aren't white English are they.

So they must be guilty.

The UAE police (as a whole) let white English get away with things, they don't understand why we diluted our gene pool by giving non-arians (if you will), British passports.

Have there been cases of White Brits being tortured (in the UAE)?

This was top story on most news bulletins while I was in the UK on Fri and Sat. Sky News wheeled in every rent-a-quote merchant from Reprieve, Amnesty and the Scunthorpe Womens' Institute............

As you say, all a bit awkward in terms of timing of official UAE state visit.
