A A Gill dumps on Dubai

There is much indignation expressed on some of the UAE English language websites about what the often incediary A A Gill has to say about Big D (here).

To be quite frank I'm not sure to what extent I disagree with what he has written; he was far more beastly about the Welsh! I can understand, however, if some of the local bloggers find themselve presented with a singularly unflattering mirror image...

"They came to be young, single, greedy, and insincere. None of them are very clever. So they live lives that revolve around drink and porn sex and pool parties and barbecues with a lot of hysterical laughing and theme nights, karaoke, and slobbery, regretful coupling."

Yes, well...
