That was what I thought and hoped, having not seen it on twitter etc..

Just read that the Al Arabiya website (that the others quoted) have taken the story down cos the publishers may have mistaken it for last years attempt.

That's all good then!

I'd be worried if BE started publishing the rubarb that turns up on here as serious and informed 'news'...

I remember when the current Emir seized power from his Father who then fled to AD and stayed in the Intercon for many months.
