Toys and Trafficking

As skimpy clothing contributes to to Dubai's already hellish traffic congestion, is the Emirate really prepared for the imminent World Bank/IMF meetings? As a temporary desperate measure, road accident laws have been changed, meaning drivers involved in collisions no longer have to wait by their cars - they must drive on to police stations instead.

So the sole joy of Sheikh Zayed Road - rubbernecking reckless dishdashes vie with clumsy subcontinentals in the 50 degree heat for a prized green "not your fault" police certificate - is over. What new pastime can take its place?

Expect brisk business for Israel's tourism industry. As Barbie dolls are banned in Saudi for being modelled after a real-life Jewish woman it's clear where Arab men will soon be headed.
