Taken where Tom Cruise was sat....

It is pretty amazing

Gerald Donovan has created some stunning Dubai shots, but this one is really world class.

I suppose that Arabs and people from Essex will think this is awesome. Personally you would have to PAY me to go there !

Correct, there is no debate / argument over one man's taste.

But you're definitely wrong.

Such an odd comment.

Parochial, judgmental and egotistical at the same time.

I wouldn't pay you to do much, certainly not teach.

Once again I stand up as the voice of Essex! I am from Essex and don't think it is that amazing.

Yes, but you also think that making sick jokes about boiling kids is funny.

Not sure Essex would appreciate you as their voice, erm then again.........................

What do you think is amazing, or should i say "Reem", false nails, gravy for a tan, looking orange?

I removed the comment. Come on you read the sun thats far worse than being orange

And just to clarify I have no idea what reem means, i do not wear false nails- never have, and i am generally a pasty shade of white and the only place gravy belongs is on a roast dinner.

And why would I share with you what I think is amazing just so you can rip me to pieces.

Ok. I'm sorry. You did remove that post, fair play. It was pretty bad though.

For my sins i do read the Sun, but i also read most daily papers, i like to know whats going on.

The Sun make you orange......

claims, and you've never made a poorly judged joke?

So does the Sun actually tell you what is going on? I thought it was just tits and Jeremy Kyle style car crash reading?

If you eat enough carrots you also turn orange.

Yes really- I didn't read this in the Sun but it also says it there so it must be true
