What not to do after brunch

Dubai, or rather British expats in Dubai, was in the news for all the wrong reasons while I was away.
One thing that’s annoyed me about lots of the coverage in the British press is the implication in many articles that this sort of thing wasn’t tolerated in Dubai for various religious and cultural reasons.
Dubai certainly has stricter rules than Britain, what these two did would be just as unacceptable in the UK. I suspect it would be illegal too.
I believe the pair are going to be sentenced soon. I hope, for their sake, that they are treated leniently and are sent home quickly.
With all the publicity the case has generated, I expect that even the most drunken couples will manage to resist the lure of Dubai’s beaches for many years to come.
