  • I lived in Qatar for approx 16 years and I have to say with my experience there I can only think that the football world cuop there will be the worst attended ever. The number of folks I have talked to in pubs in the UK who say they have looked up Qatar on the net and decided they would rather stay over here and watch it in their local and go home to their own beds rather than pay the high price for a beer in Qatar plus the high hotel prices. also Qatar had a law that says you cannot drionk alcohol in public and also that women must wear dresses no higher than their knees and also must have tops with sleeves on so what is going to happen when the likes of the Brazil supporters arrive.

  • I am sure the Saudis will be happy to come over and pay any price for a drink.

  • David Jones assumes that the only people to attend the World Cup are (a) Brits and (b) people who drink to excess. Who would have ever thought that people from other parts of the World or people who are not members of the EDF might attend? Alcohol is served at many events in the Middle East. This is either tastefully done (e.g. Formula One) or bastions of under-age drinking, fighting and the spread of STDs (e.g. the infamous Rugby Sevens in Dubai).
