Decency Laws in UAE

One of the things your not supposed to do in UAE is slurp all over your partner in public, especially so if your not married.
Staying in a hotel room together, having sex and kissing in public is forbidden if your not married, the latter also goes for married couples.

So I was shocked today to see in the Daily Mail newspaper that Z List celebrity Kerry Katona parading around on a beach in Dubai slurping all over her latest fella
How come all the celebs (if you can call most of them that), get away with laying on top of each other in public, kissing, touching each other up etc yet they do not get arrested or warned. Yet time and time again you read stories of normal couples being arrested for doing no more than kissing each other on the cheek.

Why are celebs allowed to get away with this indecency in public and no one else??? It astounds me.

UAE has strict decency laws which do not appear these days to be relevant if your a celeb.
I think its really unfair, you cant pick and choose who you will throw in the jail and who you will not. This is a side of UAE I do not like at all.

I honestly feel since I left UAE in 2004 that it has attracted the Chavs by the bucket load. Before UAE was such a mysterious place, most people had never heared of it, now it attracts anyone and anything and I feel eventually UAE will totally loose the little culture they have left and that makes me sad.
If I was Emirati I would be devistated right now to know that my country was on the same level as Benidorm as a holiday destination in the sense that it appears to be a free for all place for the drunk, half naked, could not give a damn westerners who arrive from all over the globe with virtually no respect for the culture and traditions AND Laws of UAE.

As I have said many many times on my blog, although I miss UAE with all my heart I am glad I got out when I did because I have not had my memories tarnished by what goes on there today.

UK's Freeloaders

British citizens may complain about the UK government but what they need to remember is that when your down on your luck, especially when you have kids that you at least get given money to put food on the table and a roof over your head.

Elsewhere in the world your left to fend for yourself, you get bugger all.
David Cameron intends to limit the amount a family can get to £26,000 a year which is far more than the gross salary of the average UK working person and some people are in uproar about this.

The welfare system was created to get people out of a tight spot when they lost their job or fell on hard times. It was not created to become a way of life as many families in UK use it for.
The amount of young mothers in UK is scary. They get pregnant from a young age and despite not working continue to have child after child putting the burden of raising those children on the tax paying people of the UK. When they feel they are not getting enough or their house is too small they scream blue murder blaming the government, their local council etc when in reality it was their life style choice that put them in that situation.

When your unemployed the UK government gives you an amount to live on for yourself, an amount per child, plus child benefit per child, free school dinners, subsidised school trips, free dental and medicine even free pet care. Plus you get your rent and council tax paid. The money your given is supposed to put food on the table, clothe the family and to pay the utilities such as gas, electricity and water. IT IS NOT to spend of £60 trainers for your 6 month old, Sky TV, getting your fake tan and nails done, 52inch plasma TVs, nights out at a club at the weekend, trips down the pub to get drunk 3 times a week etc.

Some families in the UK are raking in £50,000 plus a year in benefits. One cheek of a family had never worked a day in their life and were about to have their 12th child, crying to the newspapers how their evil local council would not give them a bigger house. WHY SHOULD THEY, you breed them, you feed them, end of.
It is 2012, not 2000BC, your choice of contraception is huge, there is no excuse to get pregnant 4, 5, 6 plus times by mistake and then go out with your begging bowl to the government blaming them for your situation.
I know things around the world are tough job wise, lots of people want to work but just cant find anything. I have full sympathy for these people and you will rarely find anyone who tries hard to find work breeding like a rabbit or complaining about they money the government gives them. The ones who scream loudest are the ones who have made living on welfare a way of life.

I have worked since my daughter was 1.5 years old. I work hard, I pay all my own bills, my rent, my council tax, I dont get free school dinners, free pet care, susidised school trips, subisdised after school club rates despite actually having less money than a family on benefits.

I fully agree with what David Cameron is doing right now. I also hope in the future he limits the amount of money you can get to 3 children. If you continue to breed while living off the tax payer after 3 kids then your on your own.
One thing I hate is seeing kids who have welfare dependant (by choice) parents, dressed like ragamuffins, with blackened teeth, holes in their shoes, dodgy home haircuts while their mothers are standing outside the school gate tarted up to the nines with fake tan and nails, dragging on a fag and talking about going out clubbing and getting hammered at the weekend. Breeding kids to get more money from the government is criminal. If you get money for your kids then that money is for YOUR kids, not for them to be dressed in PVC shit shoes from the Chav shack with their trousers so outgrown there up by their knees, so you can got out and get pissed at the weekend with your tart tan and your outfit from Zara and ensuring your have your 20 fags a day money.

Sorry for the rant but it really makes me CRAZY

A Very Busy Few Months

So much has been going on recently that I seem not to have time to blog much.

Another sadness. My Aunt Sue who lived in Long Island New York passed away just over 2 weeks ago. She fought a long hard battle against cancer but did not win the fight. My father booked his flight on the sunday morning to try to reach her before she passed, and sadly my aunt passed away that evening.
I feel sorry for my father as Sue was his only sibling, not only that he has lost his wife (my mother) and his youngest daughter (my sister) and now his own sister all to the same terrible disease CANCER.
May Allah give him strength to bear this sad loss.

I continue to have serious problems with my daughter. My daughter is 8 years old and has Gender Identity Disorder, which I have written about before on my blog. Basically she is 100% female but her brain is telling her she is male. It is not a phase she is going through, she is not just being a Tom Boy, she really does have a serious problem and is totally tormented being in a female body.
Recently the crap daily rag "Daily Mail" wrote some really terrible articles on GID (Gender Identity Disorder) and ripped apart the wonderful Tavistock Clinic in London which my daughter attends. Basically the article said that this is a label parents and doctors give kids who really should just be classed as Tom Boys or a bit infeminant. It also claimed the Tavistock drugs everyone to delay puberty and then puts further ideas in their mind that the kid was born the wrong sex. Of course all the numpty armchair critics (ie the small minded general public who post in the comment section) jumped onto the bandwagon, all giving their opinion most claiming they knew kids who liked to dress as the opposite sex but they turned out ok.

GID is NOT about dressing as the opposite sex, its about torment, of self harm and many other factors that make live misrable for the child. Imane now has hair cropped so short, we had to let her have it cut like a boy because yet again she took the scissors to her hair and hacked it to pieces. Then she got hold of a razor and sliced half her top lip off trying to shave. She talks about not wanting to live sometimes if she gets breasts when she is older and also tells me often that her vagina is ugly and it needs to be sewn shut with a needle and thread. That is what GID is about.
Often once purberty hits the child either stays as they are or they start to embrace being the sex they were born as. As a very last resort they may use Puberty delay drugs. Its a long process of therapy and can take years. Right now my daughters doctor talks to her on a monthly basis trying to get to the bottom of why she feels that she is in the wrong body. Was it something growing up that triggered that feeling or is her brain wire mapped as a male? We wont know for a long long time and until that time I have to support my child as best I can.

Of course being muslim it is hard, a lot of the muslim community including my daughters birth father are small minded on these subjects and cant accept it believing an Imam at the mosque will sort her out. SO NOT TRUE.

On top of the GID my daughter may have Pathological Demand Avoidance Syndrome which you can read about I have been trying for years to find out what is wrong with my daughter and on doing many months of research came across this syndrome which is on the autism spectrum and when I read the symptoms it was as though it had been written for my child. It is my daughter 100%. Now her doctor in London, her school and our own doctor in Brighton are fighting to get seen by CAHMS in Brighton so she can get assessed and hopefully diagnosed. However so far we have been refused by CAHMS because they say my daughters problems are too complex. Please pray for my daughter and also pray for me because sometimes I find life very difficult and worry oneday I am going to crack from the stress of it all.

On top of all that we are going through a massive restructure at work with the Housing Service about to change drastically. Our jobs will be changed and we probably will not be working with the people we have worked alongside for years.

But HEY HO, at least I am alive Alhamdulillah.
