    We went on our Xmas do at the Bierkeller in town last year. I was bang smack in the middle of a flare up with my Crohns disease at the time. That oompah dance thingy everyone does left me in absolute agony. Never ever again.

    Very real yeah.

    As mentioned more likely for Brits to get banged up in the UAE than any other country.

    A girl I know got arrested out there for being pissed, she went outside the hotel to give her mum, who was visiting her, the keys for the apartment and got pinched.

    She wasn't even that drunk either.

    You'd never see daylight again I'm guessing if you got caught doing that lol.

    Drunk enough though? Are do the police over there just pick and choose depending on their mood?

    I think some members of police forces everywhere are guilty of that but my point is the law there, as opposed to the office specifically.

    Do you believe it should be an arrestable offence for being only just too drunk to drive and walking out of a hotel for 20 seconds before going back in?

    Absolutely yeah. They are low paid and not Emirati but get bonuses based on arrests.

    An expat with blood in the system is easy pickings.

    He’s been found guilty and sentenced for drinking alcohol (in a licensed bar):

    “A spokesman for the prosecution service in Dubai confirmed the sentencing saying: 'On the drinking charge, he has been sentenced to a month in jail, fined 2,000 dirhams (£412) and will be deported.

    'His next appearance on the public indecency case is on October 22.'”
