The Times in the UAE

Old news this, but The Times is now being printed locally in the UAE and is available as a daily edition, covering world events from a British angle, with a good sized UK section.
I think it’s a bit overpriced – 7Dhs for a daily paper irritates me. If it were 3Dhs I’d probably subscribe, but at 7Dhs I’ll just buy it now and then when I know I’ll get a chance to read all of it.
Still, it’s nice to have a daily British paper available. I’ll still enjoy getting the Weekly Telegraph and will still avoid the Weekly Guardian like the plague.

    Well 7AED is 90 pence at todays exchange rate – back in the UK the cover price is 70 pence. So we are paying about an extra 1AED to read a quality British newspaper on the day of print. Seems reasonable to me considering the outrageous prices of "Air Freighted" UK daily newspapers in Dubai.
