Default How very dare they!

Oily old Ssssssssteve Forbes has got up the nose of prickly egomaniac "Prince" Wally:

Surely if there is a god he'll fix it so that both parties can lose this one?

That's outrageous. I'd have pegged you at at least 7,021,587,163rd or maybe even 7,021,587,163nd. Amateurs!

Perhaps after the £200 poker and football winnings last night I may be there now. And they didn't take into account my current assets, I upgraded my Blackberry Bold to Iphone5.

"..Kingdom added that it had found inconsistencies in Forbes's reporting, including "a completely unsupported and biased allegation based on rumours that stock manipulation 'is the national sport' in Saudi Arabia because 'there are no casinos'".

Theres only one thing wrong with that statement and its naming KSA - It is a GCC wide issue !

You can tell Waleed lives in a tax-free jurisdiction - when the Sunday Times publishes its annual Rich List back home, a lot of people complain that their wealth is OVERstated, and in some cases, they even object if they are even IN it in the first place..........

Just how shallow and insecure do you have to be to send a press pack with your image photoshopped onto magazine covers. Wonder if he realises he's now a laughing stock

Waleed is wearing a turtle neck, ergo he lost all credibility.

I have wondered how outsiders can get a genuine sense of the sheer wealth of the superrich Arab, especially ones in the tin-pot royal circles in the Gulf states. Much of their wealth is secret and their ownership of assets is usually surrounded in mystery. Even if you can demonstrably measure a sheikh's fortune in dollar terms it doesn't accurately reflect the buying power in everything from material assets to politics, and they have far more influence within their spheres than a standard American or European billionaire does.

I am usually more amazed by the fact a lot of them have no liquid cash to pay for things as they are in debt upto their Gutra
