Mtv’s Scapegoat of the moment: Tawfiq Al-Rayyash

25 Apr, '06

It’s been some time since we had fun with a scapegoat, I haven’t travelled much lately, but today – and in a middle of a sandstorm! (keep you fingers crossed) – I’m off to Dubai for a couple of days to participate in the Dubai Press Club’s Arab Media Forum.

So, in the tradition of the Den, I must announce an MtvSM, who this time is….

Tawfiq Al-Rayyash

The rules are really simple, blame Tawfiq for everything, and as he is a member of the steering committee of the largest Bahraini political party, Al-Wefaq, he should especially be blamed for the almost sure thing of Jassim Al-Saidi not only most probably being re-elected, but probably going to be the new chairman of the parliament! (full disclosure, not my idea and I heard it mentioned by a friend after which I felt bitch-slapped by him!)

I’m taking my laptop with me in the hope that I will blog this conference, so you might see some posts from me in that regard.

See you in a couple of days, and have fun!

    Well, stop complaining and get to work! Somebody has to run the show while Mahmood is away living it up in Dubai.

    By the way, I just got a letter from the IRS that I transposed my kid’s social security number on my taxes, and now I have to file a corrected form and can’t get my refund for ANOTHER 3 months. I know it’s all your fault, so if it doesn’t come through as promised; I’ll be looking to you to pay up. Thanks a lot!

    You inconsiderate DOLT. It is YOU that has stymied completion of my new greenhouse. You and or your evil minions snuck into the factory in the US(Illegally too I might add!) and removed several key pieces needed to complete construction. Have you no shame? This greenhouse is going to be used to propagate plant material from Bahrain for sale in the US. Do you not want economic support for the country? Is it my fault you could not figure out a way to capitalize of the FTA so you decided to ambush mine? Is this import license I acquired now WORTHLESS? Tell me Tawfiq just what in the bloody hell did I ever do to you?

  8. you need to look around you and see what i did!!!
