  1. Sheikh Muhammad's own wife fled with a German diplomat – UAE is such a "great" country that even the queen can't stand it.

  2. Sorry uk and America. Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, China, Russia and other countries do not want your stupid influences. Just because you allow your citizens to disrespect the country, burn buildings and take down statues, allow racist BLM groups to exists, allow people To embarrass themselves and make a fool out of themselves by getting drunk and falling over the floor. Other countries such as Dubai Will not allow it and for good reason. They have respect, they have dignity, they have morals and culture something which uk and America lack. Presenter is naive and far left. Good work Dubai 👍🏼

  3. Great context. Everyone needs more than there salary to be financially stable. The best thing to do with your money is to invest it rightly, because money left for saving always end up used with no returns. I started investing in bitcoin mid November 2020 with the help of a well-known -professional Mr Burton Schilichter and the profit entirely funded my recent duplex..

  4. So on point!! Everything he talked about in this video is so on point and there more to it. All the middle eastern countries run on same principle. Let’s not support these regimes by spending your money that directly or indirectly ends up in their pocket. #BoycottQatar2022

  5. One of the only BBC news reporters that doesn’t have a depressing tone with every word even when talking about the problems of Dubai. That’s how all news should be reported.

  6. Dubai was practically built on slavery. People in that part of the world are corrupt beyond measure. Not that were much better

  7. Don't compare dubai with dirty London or Paris or Dutch or spain which is built upon genocide of many innocent people and on the wealth stolen from different parts of the world,just look at British library and museum,and you will understand,the important thing to remember is that dubai and all of uae is made up by their own wealth,unlike invading done by west,the real slavery, exploitation, injustice, and genocide

  8. A culture that hates women. They treat domestic workers like slaves. Why would anyone want to support that? Nope. It’s like people who go to North Korea. Stop going to these oppressive places and supporting their economies.

  9. I don't understand why there is so much hate for dubai emirate,it is really a good place and has opportunity for all types of people,there is no forced labour, it is the west propaganda dont believe it blindly , there may be some issues,but those issues are also everywhere every part of the world , if you don't like dubai,then you are free to leave it, nobody will stop you,it is upto your choice,it gives you freedom to move out.
