I don’t particularly care how rich Royal families are or get, and I’ll reserve my own personal views on their legitimacy and that of the cash they clamped their dirty mitts on, but doing this sort of thing:
â€œDozens of these cars do laps around Knightsbridge right through the night and the excitement for the drivers seems to be seeing how loud they can rev their engines. The area is fast becoming a very unpleasant place to live.â€
The influx of super cars coincides with the so-called â€œseasonâ€ when many members of Middle Eastern high society visit London in July and August.
Hisham Alireza, 40, a Saudi Arabian construction company owner who visits his second home in Basil Street, adjacent to Harrods, each summer, said most of those driving the cars are from wealthy Arab families.
He said: â€œMost come from Qatar, the UAE and Saudi Arabia. Frankly, those of us who have homes in this area are appalled and embarrassed by their behaviour and want to see it stopped.
â€œThe problem is that they come from very closed societies where the men and women are not allowed to mix, so when they come to London in the summer, they go wild. It is a sort of courting ritual.
â€œSince the Qataris bought Harrods, it has become a fashionable place for them all to meet and show off their toys.â€
is disgusting and shameful.
But then, we have an old local Arab saying:
Which roughly translates to “Shame is but a simple dot, if it falls, then there is no stopping that person from doing even worse deeds“.
There is another saying, maybe as appropriate for this situation:
Translating to: “if one is assured that there will be no punishment or consequence to their actions, will forget social manners”
It looks like our rich compatriots have not only over extended their welcome, but have completely and utterly forgotten their manners!
But will their families even care? Of course not. To their way of thinking, they are way above the law. In fact, they are particularly chosen by Allah to be in that position, so how can they be wrong?
What a bunch of Royal pains in the ass!
