    Dubai .Why the hell would you go there

    Labourers / Maids / taxi drivers are all sending money back home to support their families in their respective countries (Phillipines, Pakistan , India, Nepal) The biggest economy in the phillipines is people sending money back home from the Middle East. There are people who get their passport taken off them and cant get out, but there are also many who are free to do what they want. Its not all bad, I talk to them everyday and work with many, they work long hours, live in average conditions, but they are doing for their families.

    Dubai .Why the hell would you go there

    Hardly this is place is mental for drinking, I now live and work here and I love it. All inclusive drinks and food packages starting at 12noon (Brunch) are a way of life here, and I have seen some very drunk people, its usually these people that end up in trouble here. Having said that its a minority that do, this is a very muliticultural city with its good and bad points, those that come here to work are generally doing it to earn more money than they would get back in there own country. I did my tax return recently - zilch and no NI - that makes a massive difference to your take home pay. Its not everyones cup of tea, but its a great place to live, work and party and 365 days of sun

  10. He normally stays at The Kenwood Hotel when he plays Sheffield, so its only down the road. He may have also been meeting his friend and collaborator Richard Halwley for brekkie
  11. London Road is the old Ecclesall Rd if you know what I mean? It used to be a great place to go for pubs and bars. Agree there are some great reasturants now though.
