Sorry I haven't been my usual self recently on the blogging front - deadlines gave way to politics gave way to fatigue, and now I'm going on holiday to get away from it all from a bit. I'm back Sunday, and should resume normal service from then.

Thanks for your concern, everyone who voiced it...

And a thought to leave you all with - for all the hubris, doesn't it look like Dubai is finally beginning to catch up with reality these days? Personally, I'm quite shocked at how mature the powers that be are being - quite out of character. Let's hope it sticks, eh?

Feel free to add your own thoughts below...

Iraqi calls Saudi 'camel jockey'

BBC: Iraq minister hits out at Saudis

Bayan Jabr said Iraqis were proud of their country, and would not accept lessons on human rights and democracy from Saudi Arabia.

And he disparaged Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal, who made the comments, as a "Bedouin on a camel".

How amusing.
