Well I'm not going. I value the freedoms I have in the UK which were hard won. I refuse to go to places where I would have to worry about breaking rules which seem arbitrary and illogical to me.
I'm with you Clodia. I will not visit the UAE - or most Middle Eastern states - whilst they have outrageously discriminatory and inhumane laws. Homosexuality is technically still punishable by death in the UAE and imprisonment widely across the Middle East. I have no wish to support such regimes when they will not afford me basic equality with everyone else.Another vote against visiting various states in Middle East on human rights grounds. Ditto China
