the secret

The thought occurred that RSS subscribers and readers may not have seen the ad for the secret, a new email newsletter being sent out in association with Secret Dubai diary. It contains a weekly/fortnightly dose of Dubai-related intrigue, adventure, scandal, and *useful* links. It will be as juicy as available gossip allows.

Anyone interested can sign up here, in the right hand column. Content submissions, from rumours to classified information, are also very welcome.

If you have any problems signing up (for example the confirmation email never arrives), just drop a comment on the blog and you can be added manually. The mailing list provider, YourMailingListProvider, has strict anti-spam policies and will not sell your email address. You can also unsubscribe at any time.

Ah. I never got the email and wondered if you had canned the idea or something.

Thanks for the public information broadcast.... but when can we go back to racial slurs, complaining about the driving and taking on the censors?

Perhap I didn't make myself clear: I read this blog every day, without fail. I have it open all day and it is continually refreshed so as not to miss a comment. It is brilliant.

The reason I come here is to do all the things mentioned at 08:59 and I'm eager to get back to it.

Leave...never. :)

Ok guys u need to hear this

Mohammed Galadari has lost his case. thank fully he will no longer have control of Khaleej Times. This was a ruling by the court of Dubai. the government has won. They have in fact purchased 30% of the stake in that company. In three months the final judgement to be given. Expect more turmoil in that newspaper before it settle sdown. For those who love his column on the front page, enjoy it while it lasts , it will be comming to an end this week.

If what you say is true, Khaleej Times definitely will be my "favorite number 1" newspaper!

Not trying to nitpick,

But there are exactly 4 radars on each side of Shk Zayed road (all the way to Jebel Ali) that work.

They are all concentrated before the first interchange except for one near Jebel Ali.

All Abu Dhabi radars work so beware.

“I can not control feelings of superiority and same time i feel a need to educate those people in human rights/freedom/self expression…”

I think this has a relationship with the british invasion to India, Arabic, and African countries some decades ago, mainly to steal their natural resources, and then come back to the same area these days after bankruptcy to invade when they can (like in Iraq) and to act like “managers” when they can’t invade; with the same “feelings of superiority”; and wonder how to “to educate those people human rights/freedom/self expression”?

By the way, are you sure you are a real brit? I bet you hardly passed the english exams in your school… maybe you lied in your CV to get the job here?
