Unfortunately yet another pathetic reminder of whose hamster wheel we are running around. Along with the pardoning of thousands of wreckless drivers pardoned on National day this sends a very clear message that if you are from the land of Noteettingham you can pretty much do what you want.

Money and lifestyle mate - seriously - have you seen the mess the Uk is in?????

The only other place i fancy is South Korea or Malaysia tbh!

Or maybe as a lifeguard on copacabana beach!
I lived in Malaysia - great place - only 1 problem.....dealing with locals !!!

I agree the UK is in a mess - but the rule of law applies to all.

Must have borrowed OJ's glove.

The rich and powerful get off lightly all across the world, it's not fair, but some people are lucky enough to be above the law, whether it be in the UAE, UK or USA.
Agreed - it's very easy to react with indignation to the injustices in other cultures, but we shouldn't be blind to the injustices in our own. I would argue that untouchability factor in the UK and US are even more prevalent - look at the figures for white middle classes in high-security jails. They are juist (OJ and possibly MJ aside) lower profile.

You guys recall how a few months ago the US Congress was saying that it would block the US-UAE nuclear deal because of Sheikh Issas case?

I guess we, as individuals, dont have to have a bad conscience for selling out our ideals for a handful of cash ;)

Yes, we all knew the likely outcome, but the day you think that's OK is when you have given up your humanity.
