Kretin Times

Non-UAEans won’t be aware of the travesty-to-journalism that exists in the sandslands: the execrable Khaleej Times. The sad thing about the KT is that it does have a good business section, but the general news ranges from laughable to unbearable.

Take this story. Does anyone have a clue what it means?

    First one sounds to me like someone may have been found doing something frowned upon and decided to say that it wasn’t consensual. The year and a half delay and the fact that the word ‘habitual’ was used make me think that this wasn’t a one-off, and I wonder if it was so muddled because KT was scared to publish the bare facts…

    Your website looks great. Did you do it yourself?
