Dubai big shit hole update...

I have long fumed against Dubai and it's ilk, it's wrong in so many ways.

"Oh what should we do when the oil runs out , er spend all the money on grim upscale holidiay tat or on education and health for our people ,so they can produce their own welath... er no lets go with shit villas for shit footballers. "

"Er er er sheik if there's no oil how are people going to afford to fly to this sweaty sandy dump ?" .....



And Mr Dubai you haven't reclaimed land you've stolen habitats from the sea numbnuts.



I mean my 4 year Niece may think an Island in the shape of the world is cool but she is four and I bet she'd get bored with it pretty soon, I mean grow up

"look look Ryan Giggs lives in belgium and the Rod stewarts on Thailand " for fuck sake grow up.



I don't know who I dislike most the Dubai leaders who squander their countries weath on gaudy crap or fatuous "Ballet" teachers from Surrey who like playing at Donald Trump as long as some poor sod gets paid £30 a week to empty the bins in 50 degree heat. And no Donna Dempsey this isn't envy no money on earth could get me to sit in your fetid jacuzzi sipping badly made drinks whingeing about property prices and air fares you smug get (I bet your not 46 either!)



So in conclusion Dubai is a chidrens cartoon shaped gaudy shit hole run by short sighted un elected crooks populated by smug selfish self deluding foreign cretins and footballers all kept in gilded bordom by unknown unprotected exploited, overworked lonely quasi slaves.

Would you like us to send you a Brochure.....

Well, glad you got that off your chest! Did you see the article in the Guardian on Saturday about the Cambodian government flogging off huge tracts of beach and island to foreign speculators and developers. They are evicting local people to build - guess what! - more expensive villas for the oil tycoons and overpaid footballers of the world.

But where are all these people coming from? How many rich, tasteless smug bastards can there possibly be in the world to buy these places? I suppose once you get sick of your reclaimed fake island you can just go a ruin a real one somewhere else....

I don't know why it makes me so angry it's just the waste, the hubris and the greed I suppose.
I do think the cheap air fares are the key if they ever go up all this foreign holiday home thing is going to fail. The other thing is the blandification of the world you know that we can go anywhere and still be within 3 ft of glass of chardonnay and a grilled prawn. Not bad things in themselves but what about local food, local ideas etc.

I know exactly what you mean. And cheap airfares are the problem, but it really can't last for ever or we're all screwed.

If you really want to get depressed about all of this I highly recommend Leo Hickman's book The Final Call - http://www.amazon.co.uk/Final-Call-Search-True-Holidays/dp/1903919991/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1209380238&sr=8-2

Interesting stuff about Dubai amongst many other places...

Dubai does suck donkey nuts, its very true. There is a ton of social inequality over here, and the racism is harrowing. What makes it worse is that the government sanctions racist belief by passing legislature that treats various nationalities differently. Everything from driving license laws to visa laws favours (White) Westerners to Asians.

I totally agree with this post from the bottom of my heart. I stayed in Dubai for 3 months. I had 3 year contract with an Arab company but after what I saw, I decided to pay the penalty and leave this shithole ASAP. No culture, no leisure, nothing man. Dont fooled by same unreliable Tv shows or magazine. Its a fucking desert man, get real!! They are putting plants next to airport for example, these poor living creatures dies in almost a week and they take them out and plant new ones!! And while this stupid guy with a big big ego and calls himself the ruler of this country travels with his fancy car, poor indians or other nation citizens work under 55C heat everyday for to make 400$ a month!!! There are lots of things to say but the most interesting one is; Why the fuck my country(UK) and States, which are the most developed countries in the world, supporting these stupid Arabs? Maybe... money???

Dubai is a shit hole. It is an evil necessity for some ppl who need to work and make a living. Fancy, tourist destination...wtf wants to go there in 55c heat.

When I was visiting, I had a moslim driver who was from India (snow clad parts: must have been Kashmer)...who was literally crying about badly he was treated by his Arab owners. I felt sorry for this guy who was away from his family (the poor guys are not allowed to bring their families) and was not in a hostile environment but also in a climate that was completely different from his snowclad moutain home. All to make a lousy 300 or 400 bucks a month.

I completely agree with this statement. Dubai is the biggest shit and poor ppl are those who believe advertisement to go for tourism or work there. I've been there for 6 months, worked for one shitty hotel and run out of that country feeling proud to get back home. They utilize sewage fot plants so it smells shit in the streets, part of that sewage goes to the sea, all goods in the high style malls are made in best case in China and have the lowest quality so it is useless to use it more than for 1 month. Salaries are not compatible with the living standards. Just ask any cleaner or driver how much they were promised to get before coming to Dubai and what a hell is their life now. They come with great hopes and live from 4 to 20 in a room with 3 times less salaries. For cleaners 800 drhms- a bit more that 200 dollars. Per month. The level of discrimination is above understanding- if u r a german guy- welcome anytime, u will be promoted within 6 months anywhere even if this german was not more than a housekeeper in Europe before, but if u r from asia.. just pray. The enormous heat and chilling winter have nothing in common with a good climate. Stupid arrogand locals have nothing in common with those rich ppl from other countries who r intelligent enough to earn their money. All people who stay there hate that country, they never treat it fairly as well and social climate is a disaster- i can never trust anyone, coz all usually just use those circumstances to earn a bit and to escape back to their families. Many companies need just illiterate pple for work, so, they never do any education or social check of whom they r hiring. U can never know who is serving you there- a criminal, whore or any other shit. This country is a collection of greed, misery, poverty and lies.

This city is no longer what it used to be. The police are too indifferent to help anyone as are the hate filled nationals. They just want rents (which is just another word for interest). Interesting that they say interest is "haram" (what isn't according to them?) but they live off it anyway. Their banks charge interest too but its just called something else. You can't throw the ball over the fence but you can throw it over the thing dividing the two houses is what their lives are all about. Plus, a mega dose of hypocrisy, racism, religionism, utter disregard for others' rights, and of course lying and projecting a grand image to others in spite of these realities.

Its okay to charge a rent that justifies the quality being offered . Problems begin when rents go beyond quality, as they have in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. That is despicable.

Been there, lived there. Would never go back and live in the Middle East, especially Dubai. It amaongst other GCC countries is the most racist country out there. Indian, Bangladeshi and Philipino workers are treated like dirt and white people are treated better. The arab mentality has undergone a dramatic shift over the years and while they do talk about gold and gltter to anyone who works in Dubai, it will change you as a person when you look at all the people who are not treated as Human beings there.
