Default Missing Princess

I know they are all princesses down in Bur Dubai, but has anyone spotted a missing local gal?

This is big news in UK. Lead story on BBC news over the past few days. Recall watching the documentary few years ago. Interested to see how this plays out.

UK government will say the right things, Dubai will not comment or deny, the queen will not publicly snub because UK racing would probably collapse without him.

It will blow over and be yesterday's news in no time.

I can only assume this is "fake news" because there is nothing on the The National about this, not even when I search in their site for "Latifa".

I am not sure "Sheikh Mo is a ******" is news really. Except to people in Dubai who get their news from the local media.

Doubt it. He just has one massive stable and whilst he uses a few other stables, there are plenty of trainers doing very well without his cash. Don't forget, there's plenty of other people out there with cash to burn on pre-pedigree chum material....

Maybe not collapse then but would definitely leave a huge gap without him.

On Not Being a Princess - Craig Murray

My buddy Craig hits the nail on the head. Like me he is unlikely to be in the next Honours List.

He sugar coats his opinions heavily doesn't he?

He had years of training in The Foreign Office until he p*ssed them off by pointing out thet the Ruler of Uzbekistan was a bloodthirsty tyrant. In the same mold as Clive Ponting. We need more like him.

I'd never heard of the chap but was surprised to see where he'd been working for the FCO yet held such strong views on a topic such as this.

'...he is to marry his girlfriend Nadira Alieva, the former stripper-turned-actress for whom he swapped his wife and two children.'

'She looks after me very well when I get one of my depressions.'

I'm feeling rather depressed right now.
