Default Qatari Emir buys Greek islands

the emir of Qatar, Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, has opted to splash out €8.5m (£7.35m) on six idyllic isles in the Ionian sea
But the Gulf royal does not appear in any mood to create tourist resorts on the retreats. Instead, said Kassianos, his aim is to build palaces for the exclusive pleasure of his 24 children and three wives.

So how long before he starts buying Scottish Isles; there is the slight problem of the weather

$8.5m? Personally that sounds like a bargain to me.

Wonder whether he'll get planning permission for the palaces?

Actually, of course he will, he'll just pay the bribe needed.
