    Those arabs have double standards, that lady in Dubai will be held for about 12 months after on glass of wine on an Dubai owned plane Emirates.
    When I was in Dubai several times in the 70s and 80s,in the top Hotel, The Flamingo Room, a night club on the top floor was full of arab sheiks, they fly over the border in helicopters and then they drink whisky from the bottle, light cigars from the candles with 1000 diram notes with a white girl sat on their knee.
    I will never ever fly on any arab plane again or go to any arab, or moo slem country again.

    On the world cruise we are going on in January I am getting off in Singapore as the ship then goes into the Gulf States and then through Suez and home. I do not want ever to pay for a trip through those places. Bad enough being paid to go there.

    Hi John
    We are flying Business Class to Miami in January, with British Airways, for the Two of us it cost 720. OR 360 EACH. that was by using my Airmiles, that I saved up by flying B.A.mostly, and also every time I use my B.A. credit card I also accumulate Airmiles on everything I buy, Groceries, Petrol etc. I still have 57,000 Airmiles in my B.A. Account.
    When we get off in Singapore in April, I will have enough to get a cheap Business Class ticket to Manchester with the Airmiles..
    In the B.,A. Group for Airmiles is around Ten Companies, including Qatar, American , Alaska, Iberia, Quantas and so on, Airmiles soon mount up and cuts the cost of flying or Up Grades to better class seats.

    The duplicity of citizens from Arabic nations never ceases to amaze me when you see them in western countries. Doing 2nd mates in shields the college was full of Persian students who never turned up for lectures, instead they could be found nightly drinking and dancing in the Chelsea Cat, or as it was better known as the Persian Pussy. There were a number of Shields girls who married them thinking that when they got to Arabia they would be leading a life of rich luxury, how wrong were they. My pal almost got expelled from college when one of them allowed a heavy fire door to slam shut on my pals hand instead of just holding it for a couple of seconds until my pal and I could get hold of it and stop it from closing, so we got hold of him a gave him a going over. He reported us to the head of the college but did not know our names or could identify us, so we just pleaded ignorance. Later on visiting Playboy clubs in Manchester and London, they were full of them drinking spirits and flashing huge amounts of cash around and I have seen them losing thousands in the casinos there.

    A good friend of mine (now dead) did a lot of business with the Arab nations, the amount of backhanders that he had to give was unbelievable. Then you get the clowns, screaming underhand business methods and demanding investigations into UK companies for bribery and corruption.

    Often those clowns are the ones that failed to get the contract and didn't offer a big enough bribe
