In the immortal words of another saviour "Love thine enemies. Love thy neighbours as thyself."

Not until an electorate understands the wisdom of this statement can any leader or government debate policy in its Parliament because peace and harmony within its own people is desperately lacking.

That applies to the whole of the Middle East and the Arab Nations.

For me... and bear in mind my word is law and it will be carried out.

I would make child labour a jail term for the person who is employing them.. that will put children back into school.. so we need more teachers.

I would implement a huge clean up that has to be carried out daily.. that will also employ thousands.


I would do pavement repairs.... again this will employ people.


and I havent thought any further than this:eek:

OK, since we are rich, then the first thing TRAFFIC LIGHTS in Cairo and Alexandria at almost every main intersection, and STOP SIGNS at the rest of them. INSTANT TICKETS starting at 300 LE that has to be paid within 1 month, or easier suspend the driver's licence. More buses, all air-conditioned, no microbus, no toktok. However those drivers can apply and be tested so that they can drive those buses.

Social security and food supplies for needy families or single moms or people with disabilities, plus offices to help find jobs for them.

You won't pay rent for 20 years if you are going to start your business in Egypt esp. Cairo or the other newer towns. Tax exemption for the first five years since you start production. Will pay the expenses for quality assurance specialists.

Will have specialists (phD from a foreign university) look into and rewrite the school curricula, and will cancel the religion classes. Will pay for your higher education (teachers) if you are going to stay in this job for another 5 years. Will hire psychiatrists and psychologists who will hire their staff to run the youth centers starting with Cairo and Giza (volunteers are welcome too).

Don't worry about budgets.. we are rich.
You can fix almost any problem with money :D

I would invest heavily and on a large scale in solar power, which not only would create a load of jobs but also cut Egypt's dependency on energy imports, hence reducing the need for fuel subsidies, improving the country's balance of payments and moving towards a more sustainable economic model (not to mention the green kudos).

that, for starters

I asked a friend who's working in a car company about Prius, a green fuel car. She said it was planned to be in Egypt before the revolution but it would be very expensive compared to the cars in Egypt because the whole staff has to get their training abroad. It would have saved a lot of energy and gas shortage would mean nothing.

why not bring the training to Egypt? :confused2:

OK so that would be another project of mine, ensure that education (specially at university and NVQ level) provides students with the skills required in the job market so the money invested in building new infrastructure is maximised for the long term benefit of the country

Because I guess they are getting trained inside the factory itself.

I would give them this bill

In a study prepared by Abdel Moneim al-Sayed, a member of the International Arbitration Center, he listed the following costs:

Mubarak’s medical expenses at Sharm al-Sheikh Hospital since his resignation: LE175 million
Cost of transferring the interrogation team during the first 174 days Mubarak spent in Sharm el-Sheikh: LE15 million
Cost of transferring Mubarak from Sharm al-Sheikh to the court in Cairo using a helicopter, including the wages of the security guards: LE300 million.
Cost of transferring Mubarak from the International Medical Center to the court: LE25 million.
Cost of securing the court: LE12 million.
