I really know nothing about Dubai, but Brits (err, any white people) moving to anywhere near Iran/Iraq seems like a mighty-fine way to end up a headless infidel.

And from the questions people are asking, and the answers that are coming up (eg. wondering if its safe for a woman alone in the street, that it is illegal to be gay), it just doesn't sound like the most tolerant, safe, modern (thinking) place.
As you say you know nothing about Dubai and the rubbish you have spouted proves that.

Dubai is probably safer than any UK city.

I suggest the poster keeps quiet if he knows nothing about the place.

From a long term resident.
