Iggle's a twat, but he's OUR twat. So that's OK.

Isn't it?

I will stand up for him here. He has some semblance of an argument on the other thread and fair play he has stood his ground against all the left footed socks thrown against him.

You are still a tosser Iggle, but you have scored some points

Business wise I am crazy busy at the moment and will be for several months to come. Working on the detailed design of the new Expo 2020 Metro section..... plus all the other ongoing projects I have.

As such, all is OK at the minute.

Kind of agree that a downturn gets rid of the arseholes that give this place a bad name though. So not all bad!

Like this one?

Father sues ¬£28k-a-year boarding school after son passes just one GCSE exam¬

A father is suing a private school for the £125,000 he paid for his son's education after the teenager left with just one GCSE.

Scott Craddock, 57, has served papers on Abbotsholme School, claiming it did not deliver on its promises with his 17-year-old son David.

The retired truck driver worked in the Middle East to pay for his son to have the best education at the independent boarding and day school in Rocester, Staffordshire.

Mr Craddock paid £28,000 each year for five years for David to go to Abbotsholme, but the teenager left last year with just a single GCSE out of eight - a grade C in science.

The son will probably be joining us in Dubai at some point. As a financial advisor

Tendering and design's been going on for some time.

Haven't heard what the actual construction status is.

Yeah, it splits of SZR and goes down past / through disco gardens and then curves round behind the Jebel of Jebel Ali, past / through DIP and into the Expo site.

It wasn't awarded that long ago. Detail design is underway and we are all entrenched in the JV office in DIP. Construction will start in the last 1/4.

If there is decent housing on the metro route, it will suck people from Sharjah, the Shj rents will drop even further, then more people will move to Shj.

It's going to be interesting, that's for sure. I'm not planning still being here in 4 years, but, you never know.

There is work on site, albeit the square root of **** all. From the Expo offices when you look out there's a touch of piling going on and a whole lot of sand blowing around.

Piling is nothing to do with the Expo. Can't blame the sand on us either.

As I said, detailed design is underway. The ground investigation will start very soon.

What's the work in the middle of the site?

I'll be up there this week to catch up with folk and don't expect to see any progress. As you say, all design work.
